I'm not reading every story, just the ones that grab me. Alaya Dawn Johnson's brilliant fantasy-suspense story "Shard of Glass," Delia Sherman's joyous story of magic in suburbia "Walpurgis Afternoon," and "Neils Bohr and the Sleeping Dane" (a unique spin on the 'escape from the Nazis' trope) are my favorites. I also enjoyed my first story by Connie Willis, which ends the book with a clever story about skeptics investigating a channeler.

A fine range of well-written stories with a variety of writing styles and fantasy subgenres (including more than a few horror tales) so that at least some stories are bound to please any fantasy fan
