Review

Rating: 7

Like the other anthologies edited by Martin H. Greenberg and company (Elf Fantastic, Knight Fantastic, Cat Fantastic and many more), the stories are a bit uneven in quality. They tend towards the lower tier for quality despite the inclusion of some well-known names. It’s particularly noticeable in this collection because some of the stories are a little too “meta” and “gamer” refers to everything from computer simulations to roleplaying games and quite a bit in between the two. So far, Wizard Fantastic is the best of these collections. However, the last three stories are definitely worth a read and the final story (by Kristine Kathryn Rusch) is a perfect segue to Ed Greenwood’s memoriam for Gary Gygax.
