I like Smith of Wootten Major, it's a good little story. Worth looking out for editions with the Pauline Baynes illustrations. Tree and Leaf is an allegorical story, Homecoming of Beorhtnoth is as far as I can remember a kind of sequel to the Anglo-Saxon poem The Battle of Malden. I think there was an essay on fantasy in this edition too.
