His work is characterized by psychological complexity, conceptual abstractness, moral bleakness, and the use of an arcane vocabulary, and has attracted critical praise for its "imagination, vivid characterizations, and fast pace". He earned his bachelor's degree from The College of Wooster and a Master's degree from Kent State University.

To Stephanie –. who never fails of Magic. I WISH I COULD CLAIM THAT THE STORIES IN THIS VOLUME were written as part of a continuing effort to conquer new literary territory. Two of the stories here were written especially for this volume. The second, Ser Visal’s Tale, uses a more traditional idea of magic in some unexpected ways. As for the rest- Gilden-Fire comes with its own sufficient introduction. I include it here for the sake of completeness.

This is an incredible collection. I'm not eloquent enough to do it justice in a review. All of the stories are strong, and they are diverse enough to show that Donaldson, known mostly for his Thomas Covenant series, is no one-trick pony. The title story is especially powerful. Also worth buying is his collection "Reeve the Just and other stories."

Brilliant set of short stories. Absolutely hooked! As a Covenant chronicles fan, it was particularly refreshing that Donaldson included Gilden-Fire amongst these works.

Love the short stories.

I LOVED the book! I like all of them though my favorites happen to be Daughter of Regals, Ser Visal's Tale and The Conquerer Worm. But I liked Unworthy of Angel and Mythological Beast a lot too. Overall, just read the book. I found them all interesting (except Animal Lover, which I didn't read yet hehe) and there's something for everybody.
The Conquerer Worm isn't really a fantasy or sci-fi story at all- it's the shortest (I think) and it shows how much trouble a centipede causes. It has a psycological "creepiness" abput it and I loved it. It is more about developing the characters than anything.
I LOVED Daughter of Regals because of the complex storyline and all the twists it has.
Ser Visal's tale has an unexpected ending- tho it took me a few minutes to realize it. I was like *GASP*. I found that telling the story through a storyteller was interesting.
Gilden-Fire is great because I loved Thomas Covenant and it ties in some info about the bloodguard that is not in The Illearth War. Great read but might be a little confusing for anyone who didn't read the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, the Unbeliever.

A mixed genre collection, based around the Gilden-Fire novella, but mostly fantasy and then horror. Not too bad, with a 3.31 average.

Gilden Fire is is the result of one of the earlier modern fantasy writers inability to write anything short. Obviously a disease that has proved seriously catching.

Because the Illearth War was too long originally and threatened to turn into a black hole, this is a part chopped out of there and deals with Korik the Bloodguard's quest to Seareach, so is not a Thomas Conveant story as far as that goes, directly.

Lords, Giants, fighting as a big finale, too.

Truthfully, I found these pieces lackluster. I felt they had very little of what makes Donaldson so strong as a novelist. Somehow the short form never gives him the chance to create the worlds for which he is so justly famous.

I was particularly disappointed in the first two stories, the longest in the collection. "Daughter of Regals" was quite predictable, and "Gilden-Fire" read like a failed sketch for Illearth, rather than a story set in its mythos. I did enjoy the book more as it progressed, and the stories towards the end were the strongest. I was particularly fond of "Animal Lover" and "Unworthy of the Angel". "Unworthy of the Angel", to my mind, started to approach the quality of the novels-- it was bittersweet, surprising and well-crafted.

Recommended for readers who are already fans. If you have never read any Donaldson before, then pick up Lord Foul's Bane or A Man Rides Through instead.

This is possibly the most complete set of short stories from one author I have ever seen. Each one of the stories carries something special. I concede that there were stories that were slow starting, (namely Daughter of Regals and Ser Visals Tale) but these were inevitably saved by their conclusions. Two stories will stay with me for ever. The Conqueror Worm and Unworthy of the Angel are sheer magic.

The rest of the stories included are better, a wide mix of urban fantasy and cyberpunk. Of greatest interest to the fan of the Thomas Covenant Chronicles is a deleted Book of The Illearth War, written entirely from the perspective of the haruchai. The author explains why it was deleted, which make sense, but I found myself coming away with a greater understanding of the Chronicles after reading it, and I wish that it had not been removed.
