    Anthologies like this remind me why I don't read much high fantasy any much of it is an old boy's club full of pretentious writing I skipped over most of the stories in this book to be honest but I'd like to give a shoutout here to the ones I did like The Sage of Theare by Diana Wynne Jones I love Jones's work and and while this story is part of a larger collective I haven't ventured into yet it still stood alone to show the power that comes with a simple question why? Timekeeper by John Moressey This story was writ on a smaller scale than many of the others and that was a good decision Novels and sagas can be about the fate of a whole country or world but a short story should focus on something smaller to really flesh it out This short is beautifully wrought The Bones of the Earth by Ursula K le Guin This story is the reason I picked this book up this week January of 2018 Le Guin has just passed away and I wanted to see her off This story is a fitting one as it's about home and mentors and legacies and when and where to say goodbye
