This is not one of my favorite anthologies. There were a few good stories, of course, but most of them were dark and depressing no matter which catagory (fantasy or horror) they were placed in. The ones that stand out in my memory as pleasant were those by my favorite authors de Lint, Yolen, and Gaiman. Two of those three were poetry pieces.
