This got me another big chunk of Tom Rynosseros, so I'd be inclined to give it a 5 just for that, although that might be going a bit far. However, the Rynemonn chunk is fabulous. Leanne Frahm's creepy Rain Season has stuck with me for a long time, as well. Plenty of other good stuff. Don't get too many magician in the Australian past stories either, to speak of another one. Two introductions, and an afterword by Foyster.
