Jane Yolen is uneven in quality. She has a good setup for her stories, and gets you into an interesting world with shining ideas, but doesn't always deliver a satisfying resolution. But the nice thing about short stories is even if one story leaves you feeling cheated, you don't feel cheated by very much.
Her darker stories are more powerful. I especially liked "Mama Gone."
