For Legend, acclaimed writer and editor Robert Silverberg gathered together 11 of the finest writers in fantasy to contribute to a collection of short novels. Each of the writers was asked to write a new story based on one of his or her most famous series, and the results are wonderful. From Stephen King's opening piece set in his popular Gunslinger universe to Robert Jordan's early look at his famed Wheel of Time saga, each of these stories is exceptionally well written and universally well told. The authors here include King, Jordan, and Silverberg himself, as well as Terry and Lyn Pratchett, Terry Goodkind, Orson Scott Card, Ursula K Le Guin, Tad Williams, George RR Martin, Anne McCaffrey and Raymond E Feist. This is not only a great book in and of itself, but it's also a perfect way for fantasy fans to find new novels and authorsto add to their "to-read" lists. -- Craig E EnglerReview:
‘The biggest names in contemporary fantasy have written novellas set in their most popular worlds. Fortunately, the standard matches the notion; maybe the contributors were spurred on by group rivalry’
‘An essential buy for every fantasy fan’
‘A dream team of fantastic fantasy’
‘A stellar compilation’
