"Sure to appeal to Cherryh enthusiasts as well as initiates... all readers should appreciate her short fiction's lyrical blend of SF and fantasy. The majority (of the stories) showcase the author's talent for depicting the effect of history on individuals. The Visible Lightsection, which includes the Hugo-winning 'Cassandra, ' highlights her skill at creating poignant, believable characters embedded in political and personal conflicts." Publishers Weekly
"This massive and valuable collection reprints all of Cherryh's short fiction... 'Cassandra' is a Hugo Award winner and, with 'A Thief in Korianth' and 'The Last Tower, ' enjoyes classic status in the Cherryh canon. Toward the end comes an assortment of 'Other Short Fiction, ' amid which 'The Dark King, ' 'The Unshadowed Land, ' and 'Gwydion and the Dragon' are outstanding. Cherryh crafts even less impressive stories well enough to verify her reputation for brilliance and versatility." Booklist
"The twenty-nine short stories, novellas, and novelettes gathered here represent the best of Cherryh's short fiction. Known primarily for such novels as Cuckoo's Egg and the 'Chanur' series, Cherryh demonstrates a fine flair for compact storytelling that encompasses science, fantasy, and myth." Library Journal
"A quarter-century of short stories shows an award-winning writer to be master of more than just novels. Economical, swift, varied, employing just the right amount of detail, they are all eminently readable and often accomplish the same thing the novels do in a fraction of the space. In these days of ever-increasing book prices, this mammoth volume represents a bargain at its modest price. But of course, it's the high quality of the stories that seals the deal."
"Highly intelligent and inexhaustibly imaginative, this versatile collection should be cherished for decades to come. Much more than entertainment, The Collected short Fiction of C.J. Cherryhis literary history unearthed." The Barnes & Noble Review"
