Melissa got the Mountains of Doubt, but I discovered a probable for 
Fire Keepers.  It's _Guardians of the Flame_, by Joel Rosenberg.  Saw 
Vol V today in a book shop, and it was dedicated to Emma Bull and 
Will Shetterley (?), and had thanks to the Minneapolis SF group. 
They seem to be out of print, so I couldn't see what the name of Vol 
VI was, if that has any particular significance.  Or perhaps it's 
dedicated to Patricia Wrede?

Anyway, it was so long ago that everyone's probably forgotten, but it 
was fun to find it.
