Sails & Sorcery: Tales of Nautical Fantasy

Sails & Sorcery: Tales of Nautical Fantasy - Elaine Cunningham, Mark Summers, Robert E. Vardeman, James M. Ward, Lawrence C. Connolly, Paul S. Kemp, Gerard Houarner, Jaleigh Johnson, Murray J.D. Leeder, J.M. Martin, W.H. Horner, Jon Sprunk, Christopher Heath, Gerri Leen, William Ledbetter, Leslie Brown, Patrick Tho Solid and entertaining although some of the stories run together due to theme and other commonalities after a while. Part of the reason is this collection is quite long. But the writing is very strong, stories and characters interesting for the most part, and the authors' takes on the themes are unique enough that this stands out as one of the more unique fantasy anthos I've read in a while. Recommended.
