13 new stories about TESTING the bonds of fellowship on fantastical worlds

The bonds of friendship and fellowship are key to many fine fantasy and science fiction novels, most notably Tolkien's The Fellowship of the Ring. Now top tale-spinners offer their own unique takes on fellowship in thirteen original stories, featuring a girl who finds her best friend through a portal to another world, an adventure on an alternate Earth where a not-quite Holmes and Watson take on a fascinating challenge, a group of urban mages playing the "True Game" for high stakes, a squire determined to help his master's ghost fulfill his final mission, and more. Together, these stories dramatically illustrate how fellowships can alter destiny and change worlds.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good collection, broad spectrum of the fantasy genre 18 Jan 2008
By John Ottinger III - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Anyone who has ever enjoyed the closeness of fellowship and friendship in any of its forms will find a story that resonates clearly in their hearts and minds. Greenberg and Hughes have collected thirteen stories that cover many speculative fiction genres, but that all explore the unique relationship that is a fellowship. These stories are comrades in literature, each supporting the others weaknesses, and filling in the gaps as to what fellowship means for the human heart.

I recommend this anthology. The stories are solid, written by authors widely acknowledged as accomplished in the art of the short story. The reader will not be taking a chance on new authors only beginning their craft. Greenberg's legendary editorial talent shines through, and Kerrie Hughes is an editor who understands what it means to tie stories in an anthology together while still maintaining distinctiveness in the telling. You will not be disappointed should you choose to read this anthology. Share it with your friends and revel in the fellowship.
2.0 out of 5 stars Meh 22 Jun 2013

I had hoped for more from this collection...epic tales of daring do that would remind me a bit of he Fellowship from the Lord of the Rings. After all I think that's what the title is trying to invoke.

Sadly for me it fails at this. For me the best story in this collection is only so-so, with some I found so boring I quickly skipped over them. A couple are very good..."Almost Brothers" and "The Quest" start the book out strongly, but it all goes downhill fairly quickly after t hat. Perhaps that's part of why I was so annoyed.....I expect more after those first couple of stories.

Ah well. That's the good thing about collections--you don't have to (and shouldn't really expect to) enjoy every story.

Could have done a bit better with this one though.....

4.0 out of 5 stars enjoyable theme oriented anthology 3 Jan 2008
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The underlying connecting concept between these thirteen short stories is the bond of fellowship usually found on an impossible quest as defined by Tolkien although can be as simple as friendship. The key is that each willingly risks their life for the other(s). Although there have been a ton of theme anthologies of late some edited by Martin H. Greenberg, they remain fresh and fun if one reads it over a few weeks. A one sitting experience leads to overdosing. FELLOWSHIP FANTASTIC contains thirteen new tales of bonded individuals going beyond the distance (even through portals into another world or an alternate earth) for their pal. The tales are well written and entertaining while the various settings keep the collection from becoming stale as brothers and sisters in arms protect one another. The best tales in my opinion are those that occur on this earth like Alan Dean Foster's "Overcast" that has a cloud follow a hiker and Arizona's "Scars Enough by Russell Davis. Still from Serbia to finding your best friend on another world to understanding that "Revenge is a Dish Best Served with Beers" (I disagree with author Fiona Paxton -make it wine), this is an enjoyable theme oriented anthology.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great story 2 Jun 2008
By Andrew D Betts - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
My review is based on one story, "Concerning a Gambit of Fraternity" by Steven Schend, which was really the only reason I purchased this book. I've read and re-read this story a number of times. It always reminds me of conversations with friends of mine (which I won't get into in this review).

I've read a few other stories in it, some I enjoyed, others I did not, but "Concerning ..." was well worth the buying the entire book.
