Legends 3

I picked up a copy of Legends 3 today from the bargain table at Borders. There are eleven different novellas, edited by Robert Silverberg. Stephen King, Robert Jordan, Terry Goodkind, Anne McCaffrey, Raymond E. Feist, Terry Pratchett, Orson Scott Card, Robert Silverberg, Ursula K. Le Guin, Tad Williams, and George R. R. Martin contributed to the anthology. An epic fantasy lovers dream and at $6.99 it was a steal, too.

I’ve only read one of the stories so far, and I felt I should say something about it, since it’s a rare treat indeed for any fan of Robert Jordan. New Spring tells the story of the meeting of Lan Mandragoran and Moiraine Damondred and the beginning of the search for the Dragon Reborn. It is one of the few stories published that take place previous to the beginning of the Wheel of Time series (another being the story of Lews Therin and the Hundred Companions raiding the Dark Ones prison) and was quite enjoyable to read. Truth be told, I had a hard time putting it down, and an even harder time resisting the urge to comment on it (an urge while I obviously failed to resist).

I’ve previously read about half of the other authors works, but those I haven’t come highly recommended. I can’t wait to read them all.
