    I've been disappointed so many times by promised appearances of TLDV that I'll pretty much believe it when I see it. Plus, what was new and shocking in the mid-'70s when the book was originally being assembled may be dull today. And there may be some legal issues concerning some of the work by people who were alive then but ain't now.

    BUT, I have a lot of faith in Joe Straczynski's work ethic, so I have some hope that it will actually appear. But...we'll see.

    JMS went into that, too. Some stories, he affirms, are as relevant, or more so, today. Some will no longer appear and rights have been returned to those authors. Thus, there are new (modern) stories that have been added to TLDV. Last month, he opened a 24-hour submission window for one last story, with the proviso that only new, unpublished authors may submit. That's pretty cool.

    When I was reading up on this- I was surprised at the venom from Priest on the matter

    Finished Katherine Kurtz' first Deryni trilogy, enjoyed those so immediately moved onto her Legends of Camber of Culdi trilogy. Thanks for the recommendation, what later works of hers should I be seeking out?

    In the middle of "The Golem and the Jinni" by Helene Wecker. It's an interesting story and a nice change from someone swinging swords and casting spells.
