Reviews

A cautionary tale by Stephen R. Donaldson (``Reeve the Just''), a whimsical ad venture in miniature by Dennis L. McKiernan (``The Halfling House''), and a tribute to the art of storytelling by Charles de Lint (``The Conjure Man'') il lustrate the variety of this collection of 19 stories written to celebrate the centennial of Tolkien's birth. Although fans of Middle Earth may be disappointed that none of these tales draw directly from Tolkien's world, discerning readers will find the unmistakable stamp of the master concealed in the heart of each story. All in all, this solid collection of fantasy belongs in most libraries. For a new edition of The Lord of the Rings and more on Tolkien, see Classic Returns, LJ 11/15/91.
