bookshelves: fantasy, short-stories, magic

Gardner Dozois has gathered another nice collection of stories on the theme of magic and magic-users. He has a number of authors that I have read before (Tim Powers, Scott Lynch, Elizabeth Bear) and some such as Andy Duncan that is not as familiar. Not every story will meet every reader's taste, but that is the nice thing about a short story collection, if you do not like it, skip it. The author intro's were key to placing the author's story in context to other work he/she has done. I will be chasing down other anthologies that Dozois had a hand in.
