LEGENDS II, VOLUME 2 New Short Novels by the Masters of Modern Fantasy

by | Read by Jason Culp, Peter Bradbury, et al.

Fantasy • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

What a treat most of this second volume of great fantasy turns out to be. Robert Silverberg's excerpt from THE BOOK OF CHANGES shines as the sci-fi master weaves a tasteful story of a kidnapped poet in a faraway land. Reader Jason Culp is more than equal to the task. Next is Neil Gaiman's "The Monarch of the Glen," a superb modern myth breathtakingly enacted by Peter Bradbury. Bradbury amazes in his hushed portrayal of Scots, Brits, and Americans--this particular segment alone is worth the listen. Sadly, Orson Card's bloated and pretentious "The Yazoo Queen" strikes out. But, overall, this is a strong production. D.J.B. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 05]
