The Best of the Realms (Forgotten Realms Anthology)

The Best of the Realms: The Stories of R.A. Salvatore - Elaine Cunningham, Jean Rabe, R.A. Salvatore, Christie Golden, Troy Denning, Jess Lebow, Jeff Grubb, J. Robert King, Kate Novak, Monte Cook, Ed Greenwood, Douglas Niles, William W. Connors, Keith Francis Strohm I sortakinda read this and sortakinda liked it. Only a few stories grabbed my attention--the first one, by Elaine Cunningham, and the story about the elven vampire, by Christie Golden. Everything else I skimmed & it was a bit meh, including the new Salvatore story touted on the cover (Jarlaxle & Entreri waste time with low-rent thieves; Entreri angsts and Jarlaxle is cocky. Yawns.)
