It's inevitable with any anthology that I'll like some stories more than others, and in most cases I end up not liking some at all. I shouldn't have been surprised that this was still true even of an anthology that wasn't chosen by a single editor, but by vote of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America membership (as at about 1992, when the "and Fantasy" part was added to the organisation's title). There are 30 stories. The rules limited each author to being represented by only one st [...]

this anthology really deserves 3.5 stars but i don't want to round up in this case's a huge collection, which i really liked, and some of the authors i'd never heard of before really surprised me and i loved their work. also to my surprise i've actually read quite a few of the stories before, unbeknownst to me, since they weren't by the authors names who i recognized straight off. i don't think the editors did a good job at all. that's my problem. you have such a huge repertoire to choose from, [...]

Definitely a great intro to the world of the fantasy short story, although some of the material will be overly familiar to the long-time fan. Props to this book for including my favorite Peter S. Beagle short story, "Come Lady Death."

I read a few stories in this anthology, but really dug "The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas," by Ursula K. LeGuin (I heard about it from my Dystopian Group). It was serendipitous to read this after reading THE SOCIOPATH NEXT DOOR--a nice fictional example of conscienceLESSness.

DNF, seemed more like horror stories than fantasy. 1 Star

“The Fantasy Hall of Fame” introduces the Sci-Fi/Fantasy reader to fantasy stories that the ‘Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America’ felt deserved a place of prominence in the world of speculative fiction. They selected 30 stories from 1939 -1990 that they considered classics.It ranges from the humorously unserious good natured fun of fantasy to the more serious thought provoking ideas fantasy has to offer. It includes the lighthearted, the terrifying, the morality tale and the [...]

This is a collection of 22 short stories that have a fantasy theme. They aren't the most modern of stories, as the book was first published in 1983, but the stories are great. Some of my favourites"The Sword of Welleran" where ghostly heros come back from the dead to save a city they love."The Women of the Wood" where a lonely traveller becomes embroiled with saving a wood from destruction."The Valley of the Worm" where a hero has to destroy a hellish worm like beast that haunts the nearby valle [...]

I really enjoyed this book. There were a lot of good stories in here (and some which weren't quite so good, even though they weren't actually horrible). I'm more of a fan of 'serious' fantasy (and high fantasy) rather than 'comic' fantasy, however. (although, having said that, I do usually enjoy Terry Pratchett's books.) As such, I preferred the more serious tales on offer here.My favourite tale in this book has to be 'The Silken Swift' by Theodore Sturgeon, but I did enjoy quite a few of the ot [...]

This book was amazing! i love the ending it was the most intense part! i recommend this book for people that are into anthology,fantasy, and action a book filled with packed info its interesting to know about this book because of all the true facts you may think by looking at the cover its not a good book it may seem boring but actually no that's not true the thing is the facts are all TRUE! and that surprised me and seriously surprisingly i loved the book and i think you would too (: give it a [...]

Niejednego zdziwić może, jak szeroko pojmowanym gatunkiem jest fantasy. I taka też jest ta antologia. Niewiele tu opowiadań kojarzących się z "typowym" fantasy. Poziom bardzo różny, z kilkoma perełkami i kilkoma nieporozumieniami, przeważają jednak całkiem niezłe utwory. Zaskakujące jest to, że nie znalazło się tu ani jedno opowiadanie Roberta E. Howarda o Conanie.

A classic compendium of stories. Enjoy old favorites (The Lottery by Shirley Jackson) and be introduced to those you should have read. That said, I found the quality of the stories a bit variable, ranging from outstanding to just head-scratching (still no idea what archetypal fairy tale Gene Wolfe was referencing in The Detective of Dreams).

Fantasy Hall of Fame by Robert Silverberg (1998)

The Fantasy Hall of Fame (1983)

For a Fantasy "best of" collection I was really disappointed. Much preferred "Epic: Legends of Fantasy" (/book/show/1)

All the stories seemed so depressing. Maybe I was just short storied out

A very fine collection of older fantasy stories from the likes of Robert E. Howard, Edgar Allan Poe, Ambrose Bierce, Ray Bradbury, C. L. Moore, and many more.
