    1. Fantasy – the very word suggests unfettered imagination, limitless possibilities. All too often, however, it merely presages an endless repetition of identical fantasies.

    2. No, every story in this anthology is not a winner, but the overall quality is very good. And when Swords of the Rainbow was released back inOlden Times, there were literally TWO gay spec fiction anthologies to choose from. That's how much times have changed!
