Fantasy fans, rejoice! Years after writer and editor Robert Silverberg made publishing history with Legends, the acclaimed anthology of original short novels by some of the greatest writers in fantasy fiction, the third volume is here.

Each of the best-selling writers represented in these selections from Legends II returns to the fantasy universe he made famous throughout the world. Whether set before or after events already recounted elsewhere, whether featuring beloved characters or compelling new creations, these masterful short novels are all mesmerizing stand-alones, perfect introductions to the work of their authors, and indispensable additions to the epics on which they are based.

Robert Silverberg spins an enthralling tale of Majipoor's early history, and remote future, as seen through the eyes of a dilettantish poet who discovers an unexpected destiny in The Book of Changes.

Neil Gaiman gives us a glimpse into what befalls the man called Shado after the events of his Hugo Award-winning novel American Gods in The Monarch of the Glen.

Orson Scott Card tells a tale of Alvin Maker and the mighty Mississippi, featuring a couple of ne'er-do-wells named Jim Bowie and Abe Lincoln, in The Yazoo Queen.

    " All of the stories in this volume were quite interesting. "

    " I picked it up to read some new fantasy writers. I think I've found some new series to follow. It would also be neat to see the feeling after having read the series these shorts are based on. A good, adventure-packed read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel G | 2/19/2011

    " The great thing about anthologies is discovering writers you know you should have read but have never got around to. That's especially true in this one, where authors offer short stories that take place in the worlds that made them famous. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Liz | 12/30/2010

    " Exceedingly good book of short stories - some much stronger than others (sadly Diana Gabaldon's was one of the weaker ones) - but even the weak stories were pretty good. I especially liked Robin Hobb's and will probably pick up some of her full novels. George RR Martin, of course, is brilliant. "

    " should be widely avaliable for all to enjoy "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allyson | 12/11/2010

    " I read Diana and Anne's stories. I couldn't get into the others. Maybe just not the right time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim | 11/8/2010

    " The great thing about short story collections is that you can read them at your leisure. This is a great example of that. Great stories that can be taken in slowly. "
