Poul Anderson is one of the great grandmasters of science fiction and fantasy.
He passed away in 2001 but he left his work behind for us to enjoy forever, work that has influenced many writers through the decades. Along with anthologist Gardner Dozois, Greg & Astrid Bear have gathered short stories and essays from some of the best names in speculative fiction and published them in Multiverse: Exploring Poul Anderson’s Worlds.
For instance, Terry Brooks contributed The Fey of Cloudmoor, a sequel to the Anderson short story The Queen of Air and Darkness, an important influence on Terry when he first started writing fantasy.
Other contributors wrote stories set in Anderson’s worlds as well. MultiverseMultiverse signed by those in the table of contents below, click HERE to buy from Subterranean Press!

Great lineup of authors. Super happy that this website is a stop on my daily surfing of the internets. Interestingly the book is not on the home page of Subterranean Press which is another daily stop of mine. Thanks for the head’s up, Shawn, oh Purveyor of Literary Deliciousness.
Just finished reading Multiverse. The long wait was worth it (ordered the limited edition signed copy back in Feb 2012). The stories are a wonderful tribute to the worlds of Poul Anderson. I thought that Terry’s contribution is one of his best short stories.
