Blogger Fyrefly has a lengthy review of EPIC, reviewing each of the stories separately (noting Robin Hobb’s “Homecoming” as a favorite).

There are some I liked more than others, of course, but there are several that I thought were great.”
Blog The Little Red Reviewer has an enthusiastic review of EPIC, which discusses several of the stories in depth, and culminates by calling the anthology “600 pages of epically undiluted awesomesauce.” [review]
