    1. A wonderful collection of some of the best known Realms authors, all involving ghouls, vampires, and zombies. We are introduced to some new friends and old favorites, and we are given some heartening news along the way.So those who follow the Realms know that the goddess of magic Mystra was killed off in the Realms around the time when D&D 4.0 came about, and her death caused the begining of a new age in the Realms, as both the lands and magic of the Realms was torn asunder by the force of h [...]

    2. A rather nice collection of short stories but, although it's published as being related to the Haunted Lands trilogy, the connection is actually very weak. The stories are all over the place, with the only shared theme being that these stories are all about death, undeath, and/or life.Pieces - Richard Lee Byers - 3/5 - A story about Bareris and Mirror on a side quest, when they were "off-screen" from the main trilogy, in search of rebels to go against Szass Tam.Soul Steel - Lisa Smedman - 4/5 - [...]

    6. Not a bad collection of short stories. Fairly hit and miss, with 'Feast of the Moon,' 'The Many Murders of Manshoon,' and, surprisingly, 'Iruladoon' being letdowns in my opinion. Nothing left much impact with me, which isn't surprising, but the book packs a nice variety that appeals to people of different ages and interests, and the stories range from gory and creepy to romantic comedy.

    7. Ik ben sowieso wel van de korte verhalen, maar als ze dan ook nog allemaal in de D&D setting zijn, en allemaal van verschillende schrijvers is het een no-brainer. Sommige verhalen lezen uiteraard beter weg dan anderen, maar dat maakt dit boekje ideaal om 'nieuwe' schrijvers te ontdekken.

    10. Some stories managed to shine although most of them were just good or average.

    11. I read half the stories, and while they were mostly solid D&D fare, I've clearly lost interest as I haven't picked it up in months. So off the nightstand it goes and back on the shelf.
