I often find when reading anthologies there is only one or two in the book that is any good, but this time I was surprised to find that all of the stories were wonderful. I don't usually give such high marks to a collection of short stories, but each one had it's own unique story that was well thought out and fun to read. Every one of them could have stood on their own with no problem. Ellora's Cavemen: Legendary Tales III is a terrific book that will definitely stay on my keeper shelf.
