    KG's list and comments.

    I haven't seen most of these myself, and am going on hearsay:

    Stories in the Liavek books, edited by Will Shetterly:

  • "Valóság and Élet" in Sandman: Book of Dreams, which I have read.
  • Allegedly some in The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror edited by Datlow and Windling; the only concrete report is of "The Sun, the Moon, and the Stars"; there is, of course, a book of that title in the Fairy Tale series edited by Datlow and Windling...
  • Allegedly a poem "Attention Shoppers" in Xanadu I.

    Andrew Shawyer says:

    Here's a list of all the Brust short stories in the Liavek series (I have all 5 collections, so I'm not passing on rumour, but fact) The list is in order of the Liavek series the Liavek series was edited by Will Shetterly and Emma Bull

    Matthew Walsh says there's a compendium in honor of Roger Zelazny called Lord of the Fantastic, with a Brust story "Calling Pittsburgh".
