    One thought on “Epic: Legends of Fantasy”

    1. This was a pretty great anthology I was probably destined to like it because it s pretty hard for me to dislike most kinds of fantasy This is also different than some anthologies because the editor didn t commission pieces for this book, but collected them from other already published sources I sampled a lot of authors I ve been meaning to try for some time, although I m annoyed that some of the stories occur halfway through a series or something like that If you like Epic fantasy and are curiou [...]

    2. Homecoming by Robin Hobb 5 stars That is a rich, vivid, intriguing beginning story about the legends of the Rain Wilds River and its people I love it The Word of Unbinding by Ursula K Le Guin4.5 stars A short story about a magician trapped in a cellar trying to fight off a mysterious powerful evil mage who no one has ever seen, who tries to steal his life and power In the end the magician escapes only after view spoiler he gives up his life and chases the evil mage through the Land of Death hide [...]

    3. Antologiile sunt f cute pentru a descoperi autori noi pe care s i cite ti, altfel, mai tot timpul sunt inegale Ca i aceasta Important e c am citit o nuvel fragment de roman foarte bun de Robin Hobb ceea ce confirm faptul c trebuie s continui cu noua trilogie de la Nemira, am descoperit o autoare pe care nu o citisem i trebuie neap rat, a a c am luat volumul de la Nemira e vorba de N.K Jemisin Mi a pl cut mult nuvela lui Martin, probabil voi lua la citit n sf r it celebra serie am v zut doar seri [...]

    4. I was drawn to Epic Legends of Fantasy by two names Brandon Sanderson and Patrick Rothfuss I confess I was slightly disappointed to find that the selections from those two personal favorites were excerpts from novels I had already read, but their inclusion served its purpose well I wasn t familiar with the other works in the anthology, so this proved to be a great introduction I wouldn t have looked into Aliette de Bodard or Paolo Bacigalupi otherwise, and their stories stood out from this top n [...]

    5. This anthology was a very nice surprise although it contains a lot of well known names, I have discovered new ones for me and was delighted by the stories.Some are fragments from novels and the others were already published before in other magazines or anthologies, but for me they were all a first reading.Here are my thoughts on them Homecoming by Robin Hobb the diary of an exiled court lady, which take us in a journey to a mysterious land for a new beginning The landscape reminded me a lot of H [...]

    6. Epic was a perfect title choice because that is exactly what this anthology was If you ve never read an epic fantasy these are some of the best fantasy authors in the business and one exquisite sampling indeed.Homecoming by Robin Hobb5 5This one was the whole package for me It has self discovery, exile into the unknown, death, madness, a sunken city, a touch of magic, heaps of treasure and of course love The character Carillion starts out with the kind of personally that I loathed but I went wit [...]

    7. My first love in reading has been fantasy, and in writing, so for a change of pace from mysteries, I have begun to read fantasy after so many years away Anthologies are a great way to start getting back into stories one really loves, whether fantasy, mystery, supernatural, or any other type of book Anthologies introduce the reader to the variety of writers of each genre, so that the reader can get the full feel of the genre.

    8. This book is actually a collection of short stories, all based on the relatively broad genre Epic Fantasy It includes works from many of the famous fantasy authors George R.R Martin or Robin Hobb and many stories written by people I had never known of I had began this book because I was hungry for a new story from my favourite author Patrick Rothfuss who had contributed to the making of the book My opinion was heightened by the fact that another wondrous fantasy writer, Brandon Sanderson, also [...]

    9. Pe scurt, cel mai mult mi au placut povestirile scrise de Robin Hobb, George R.R Martin, Paolo Bacigalupi, Patrick Rothfuss, Trudi Canavan si Juliet Marillier Celelalte au fost destul de bune, dar nu atat de bune incat sa mi lase o senzatie de wow Va urma si o recenzie detaliata in curand P.S Acum inteleg de ce romanele epic fantasy sau high fantasy sau whatever sunt atat de IMENSE Te poti pierde ore in sir in lumile descrise intre paginile lor D Nici nu mi dau seama cand au trecut 760 de pagini [...]

    10. What I love about anthologies is the chance to sample authors I have never read before but heard about a lot This one in particular made me want to read from Tad Williams, Melanie Rawn, and Juliet Marilier It also gives positive light on authors whose works I did not enjoy previously such as Bacigalupi, or reconfirm my liking for familiar authors such as Jemisin But then, I am also disappointed with some, such as Sanderson s piece which I think is one of the weakest Moreover, my interest to re [...]

    11. A wonderful selection of short epic fantasy HOMECOMING, by Robin Hobb aka Megan Lindholm , was the best of the lot in my opinion An excellent look at a society and culture very different from the standard fare, a strong heroine, and a remarkably tense climax.RIDING THE SHORE OF THE RIVER OF DEATH by Kate Elliott was a close second This had a great old school feel blended with a truly satisfying series of culture worldbuilding.Aliette de Bodard s AS THE WHEEL TURNS was wonderfully done, with an e [...]

    12. Epic Legends of Fantasy, edited by John Joseph Adams, is an anthology of stories written by some of the biggest names in epic fantasy The book clocks in at over 600 pages not just because it s very difficult to tell short epic stories though some of these authors do manage to pull it off but because here the authors are not just telling epic legends, they are legends in and of themselves George R.R Martin, Patrick Rothfuss, Robin Hobb, Paolo Bacigalupi, Brandon Sanderson, Ursula K LeGuin, Kate E [...]

    13. Some stories were better than others but overall a good book My favorite by far would have to be Homecoming by Robin Hobb The character started off as one I really disliked, but turned into a strong and capable heroine I definitely found some authors I d like to see from

    14. Just reading The Mad Apprentice only but I still give this book a five since I enjoying reading that novella.

    15. I think I ll have to take notes as I go in anthologies, or I won t remember My recommendations are in bold.Homecoming by Robin Hobb5 5 This might be half a star generous, but man, this story was compelling and engrossing I loved how it was written as journal entries from the POV of a rich lady and artist who was forced to become a pioneer reminds me of Roughing it in the Bush by Canadian pioneer Susanna Moodie The fantasy elements are handled very well.The Word of Unbinding by Ursula K Le Guin2 [...]

    16. A great anthology, I feel that it would not be that unlikely that I start to read from any of those authors Almost all have spellbinded me with their stories and I will look after their books in the shops in the future John Josep Adams did a great work to find and collect all of those stories who shows the great diversity Fantasy have to offer They are all very different with special storylines both with and without religions some with rebirth and other believes It was ranging from a traveling [...]

    17. Most of the stories I ended up not finishing because they didn t interest me There were some surprising gems, however, and I really did enjoy them a lot.Robin Hobb Homecoming I m not sure I 100% understood the world this story was set in, but I still enjoyed it all the same It was a series of diary entries, which I really enjoyed.Aliette de Bodard As The Wheel TurnsThis story was stunningly beautiful I absolutely loved it.Patrick Rothfuss The Road to LevinshirThe story was well written, though i [...]

    18. I originally bought this book, thinking that I would get a brand new short story by Brandon Sanderson, one of my favorite authors Instead, I find that I ve read the story before, as part of The Way of Kings Big disappointment there But, the other stories did make my purchase well worth it.The ones I particularly enjoyed are as follows Homecoming by Robin HobbThe Alchemist by Paolo BacigalupiThe Road to Levinshir by Patrick RothfussBound Man by Mary Robinette KowalThe Narcomancer by N.K JemisinOt [...]

    19. This anthology was a mixed bag There were some good stories in there, and for the occasional fantasy reader like myself it was a good introduction to a number of authors I d heard of but had not read The stories by the authors I had read, and liked, were very enjoyable George RR Martin, Patrick Rothfuss, and Ursula K Leguin whose story was the reason I picked this anthology up I heard it was the first step in the Earthsea Cycle There was a long and very good story called Homecoming by Robin Hobb [...]

    20. A great cross section of fantasy fiction with a brief introduction to each author, each distinguished in their own right I d suggest you check the contents page carefully as not all of these were comissioned specially for this anthology for example the Patrick Rothfuss tale is an extract from The Name of The Wind or the sequel where the hero deals with a group of brigands Personally I liked the range, though I didn t like all of the stories Having said that, most were new to me I hadn t come acr [...]

    21. I was very excited to see the names like Patrick Rothfuss, Brandon Sanderson and Michael Moorcock in the contribution list However was a bit disappointed because I ve read the ones from Rothfuss and Moorcock already.But the other stories didn t dissapoint DThese are the ones that I like As the Wheel Turns by Aliette de Bodard Sandmagic by Orson Scott Card The Road to Levinshir by Patrick Rothfuss While the Gods Laugh by Michael Moorcock The Narcomancer by N K Jemisin Strife Lingers in Memory by [...]

    22. n Epic Legende fantasy am avut ocazia absolut nea teptat s fac cuno tin cu genul epic fantasy, acel tip de fantasy n care world building ul sau crearea de lumi atinge cote paralizant de nalte, n care personajele sunt at t de aproape i totu i at t de departe de vie ile noastre insignifiante de oameni, n care magia exist i poate este chiar filamentul acelei lumi, iar valorile i principiile care guverneaz ns i existen a nu trebuie neap rat s fie acelea i ca n realitate Bine n eles, de cele mai mult [...]

    23. So, this is a lot of short stories Some are pretty good A couple quite good A couple are actually stinkers The Mad Apprentice, Otherling But the final story, The Mystery Knight, is GOT prequel novella, and it s pretty darn good If you re jonesing for the next GOT book, this may give you a brief fix In the end, the book is a mixed bag If I had paid for it, I might be cranky But I borrowed it from the library, so who am I to complain

    24. especially liked Homecoming Robin Hobb, Alchemist Paolo Bacigalupi, Rysn Brandon Sanderson, Mother of All Russiya Melanie Rawn, Bound Man Mary Robinette Kowal, Narcomancer N.K Jemisin, Strife Lingers in Memory Carrie Vaughn, Mystery Knight George R R Martin
