Paying the Piper at the Gates of Dawn
by Rosemary Edghill

Category: Fiction / Fantasy
0 pages; ISBN: 0786253452

Rating: 9/10  (Ratings explained)
Reviewer: Harriet Klausner


Fans of short fantasy will appreciate this fine collection consisting of seventeen tales, all except one written in the last seven years. The stories run a wide gamut (as expected from an author who has entries in several genres) in the field so they are aimed more at a generalist. Each of the contributions is well written and fun to follow, as in most cases the fantasy elements seem real in spite of the relative size of the story. However, “The Prince of Exiles” was particularly fascinating as the narrator tells the tale of his family in Ancient Britannia especially once the reader understands who he is. Rosemary Edghill keeps her audience on the edge of their seat with this delightful anthology that will send fans seeking her novels and other works.
