    One thought on “Sword and Sorceress 22”

    1. The twenty-first volume of Marion Zimmer Bradley's Sword and Sorceress came out in 2004, and many readers (myself included) mourned what we thought would be the end of the series. Happily, a new publisher has picked up the torch. For anyone unfamiliar with the series, the book collects sword & sorcery tales with strong female protagonists, a broad enough theme to encompass a variety of good stories from authors both experienced and new. I settled down, cracked open the book and found myself [...]

    2. I've been a long time fan of the series, and I was excited to learn that it would be continuing after Bradley's death. A small press release, the quality is quite nice and the stories are varied and satisfying.Edra's Arrow is a good story whose telling is a bit choppy. The pacing is slow, and the language is easier to read. It took me awhile to settle in, but I liked the ending.A Nose For Trouble throws you right into the midst of the world. It's a simple story, one that's well paced and twists [...]

    3. Oh, I have to admit while knowing about this long running anthology, I'd never actually read any of its volume - which has clearly been my loss if this one is anything to judge by. A very nice blend of funny, serious and thought provoking stories. And a substantially good ratio of hit to miss stories for me. I've lined all the following volumes to go through and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the entertain me just as much. And then I'll see about getting the previous volumes.Recommended for [...]

    4. Marion Zimmer Bradley's Sword and Sorceress series continues on with a new, strong entry. The anthology covers a lot of topics and ideas, and bounces from one female lead to another with little transition. There's vanishing villages, then evil feng shui, and princesses on a mission. Still, each story stands on its own merits, making this easy to read and even easier to enjoy. Start with "Bearing Shadows" by Dave Smeds though; I promise you it's that good.

    5. The stories, like many anthologies, ranged from ho-hum to truly excellent. I felt that "Black Ghost Red Ghost" and "Tontine" fell towards the ho-hum, while "Edra's Arrow" and "Bearing Shadowns" were both excellent. "Child of the Father"fell somewhere in between, as did "Pearl of Fire". Overall, a nice selection of new stories.

    6. This was a perfectly serviceable entry in a fine series; it is neither the best nor the worst of the lot. This is true both in terms of the quality of the stories in it, and in terms of the smoothness of the editing.I am very glad to hear that the series will be continuing; I look forward to reading volume XXIII.

    7. I loved this series growing up, but despite a few interesting ideas there wasn't really much that caught my attention in this volume. Technically, I didn't even read all the stories - but I might go back someday and try to.

    8. The usual collection of short stories--most of them I really enjoyed. I always look forward to reading the S&S collections since I know I'll be entertained. (Plus several years ago they had the sense to publish one of my sister's stories.)For 30.

    9. It seemed to me there was a bit of a range in quality between some of the stories, but overall I really enjoyed this anthology. I'd like to mention specific stories I especially enjoyed, but unfortunately my memory isn't detailed enough and I've already returned the book to the library.
