Who's Your Techno-geek Daddy?


If you scroll down the blog page, you'll see on the right side of the screen that I've finally figured out how to put an image on my blog.

I'm so pathetically proud of myself.

And just so I can do it all over again, here's that picture I placed lower down:

The book description of Legends II : New Short Novels by the Masters of Modern Fantasy notes:

Fantasy fans, rejoice! Seven years after writer and editor Robert Silverberg made publishing history with Legends, his acclaimed anthology of original short novels by some of the greatest writers in fantasy fiction, the long-awaited second volume is here. Legends II picks up where its illustrious predecessor left off. All of the bestselling writers represented in Legends II return to the special universe of the imagination that its author has made famous throughout the world. Whether set before or after events already recounted elsewhere, whether featuring beloved characters or compelling new creations, these masterful short novels are both mesmerizing stand-alones—perfect introductions to the work of their authors—and indispensable additions to the epics on which they are based. Beyond any doubt, Legends II is the fantasy event of the season.

Overall, it's a good piece of work despite a couple of weak links. Of course, I thought the first
Legends: Short Novels by the Masters of Modern Fantasy, Vol. 1 set the pace with its set of immensely popular authors-- despite its own weaknesses. Silverberg did himself proud with the two collections.
