    Most were pretty boring and I could have dnfed, but then you never know if there will be a good ones since they are all shorts. I honestly do not remember anything or any names, I only wrote down thoughts after the two fist ones. "Dawn and Dusk," by Dana Kramer-Rolls I liked this one, a nice feel to it "Spell of the Sparrow," by Jim C. Hines Meh "The Woman's Place," by Susan Urbanek Linville; "Kin," by Naomi Kritzer; "Ursa," by Jenn Reese; "Red Caramae," by Kit Wesler; "Parri's Blade," by Cynthia McQ Most were pretty boring and I could have dnfed, but then you never know if there will be a good ones since they are all shorts.

Laity, Ohh, Finnish mythology. No it was not only cos of that that I liked it, but I did. It was a good short that had me hooked. "Lostland," by Rosemary Edghill; "Plowshares," by Rebecca Maines, This one I remember having promise "Step by Step," by Catherine Soto; "Favor of the Goddess," by Lynn Morgan Rosser, "Rose in Winter," by Marie M. Longhin, "Kazhe's Blade," Terry McGarry, "The Skin Trade," by Heather Rose Jones, This one could have been a good fantasy book, it had an interesting concept. "Multiple Choice," by Leslie Fish, "Oulu," by Aimee Kratts, "A Kind of Redemption," by John P. Buentello, and "Journey's End," by Dorothy J. Heydt. The one two-page poem, "Sword and Sorceress," is by Jennifer G. Tifft. I honestly skimmed most. The good ones did not outweigh the bad ones.

    I loved this book! I just turned 18, and it’s always been hard for me to find books in this style that I enjoy enough to finish. The short story format really helped there. And of course I enjoyed the different mythologies sprinkled here and there, and the fact that the protagonists are women. Yeah that’s become more popular in the YA genre, but it’s been hard to find in the style of writing these stories employ, so it was nice to find that there are even more volumes. Overall, great book, great I loved this book! I just turned 18, and it’s always been hard for me to find books in this style that I enjoy enough to finish. The short story format really helped there.

    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. One item of note is that it contains the (allegedly) final story in the "Cynthia, Witch of Syracuse" series by Dorothy J. Heydt, which I've always been quite fond of and which is apparently being (has been by now?) collected into a book in its own right. I'll have to look for it.

    Better editing than last book...most stories are winners. Last of the books I have in the series and decided not to go and buy the last 8.

    I'd forgotten I'd already read this one. But then I was recognizing the stories. Not a bad selection in this S&S, still nowhere near as good as the volumes in their heyday.
