    While reading this book, I just came across this article s pretty unusual that an anthology ever getsthan 3 stars from me after all, tastes differ, and in any random selection, there s bound to be a few stories I think are great, and a few that don t do much for me However, this anthology was, really, really good I d say 4.5 stars.Contents

    Fantasy stories ignite the imagination in ways that realistic fiction can not Characters are larger than life Conflicts mean life and death often for an entire race or culture.In this collection, editors Dann and Dozois, have collected unpublished short stories from a variety of well known fantasy authors Each story is about a wizard, but rarely do

    I only read about half of this book, so my rating is only based on that much of it, plus my impression of the book as a whole This seemed like a great collection of short stories by some excellent authors, some of whom I have read, others new to me Those stories I read were good I think I especially liked the one by Garth Nix The problem is that I really don

    I never really loved short story format, but I ve been warming up to it since I ve been trying to plow through books that have been sitting on my shelf for FOREVER This compilation had some GREAT entries, all centering around the idea of wizards Ones I loved the most were by Neil Gaiman, Orson Scott Card, Garth Nix and Kage Baker who I have only read a few things by, must remedy A few wer

    I enjoy short story anthologies, and this one was no exception I m mentioned before that anthologies are always a mixed bag Some of the stories really appeal, and others fall flat It is a matter of taste.Standouts for me in this collection Neil Gaiman The Witch s Headstone Nice little tale of risk and reward and doing the right thing.Garth Nix Holly and Iron A neat mash up of Robin Hood and The Swo

    This anthology contains never before published stories by masters of fantasy Neil Gaiman, Eoin Colfer, Garth Nix, and a magical lineup of writers.Throughout the ages, the wizard has claimed a spot in human culture from the shadowy spiritual leaders of early man to precocious characters in blockbuster films Today s wizards aresubtle in their powers,discerning in their ways, and in the hands of modern fantasis
