    "It fell as gracefully as a falling world." "It's a sound. Like silk ripping. Cerise." "I don't want a silent shining path of gold. I need the imperfect world broken up into words" - Patricia McKillip "Harrowing the Dragon"

    Out of this remarkable collection, I would have to say the best stories are: Darkrose and Diamond, Ursula K. Le Guin The Chop Girl, Ian R. MacLeod - The most touching story in this anthology The Girl Detective, Kelly Link - Always quirky in her prose, Link always delivers something I've never seen before. The Transformation, N. Scott Momaday Harlequin Valentine, Neil Gaiman You Don't Have to be Mad . . .Kim Newman The Anatomy of a Mermaid Mary Sharratt The Grammarian's Five Daughters Eleanor Arnason The Out of this remarkable collection, I would have to say the best stories are: Darkrose and Diamond, Ursula K. Le Guin The Chop Girl, Ian R. MacLeod - The most touching story in this anthology The Girl Detective, Kelly Link - Always quirky in her prose, Link always delivers something I've never seen before. The Transformation, N. Scott Momaday Harlequin Valentine, Neil Gaiman You Don't Have to be Mad . . .Kim Newman The Anatomy of a Mermaid Mary Sharratt The Grammarian's Five Daughters Eleanor Arnason The Tree Is My Hat, Gene Wolfe - Disturbing and invigorating. Ever had the vacation from hell? Nothing compared to this story. Welcome, Michael Marshall Smith Keepsakes and Treasures: A Love Story Neil Gaiman What You Make It, Michael Marshall Smith The Parwat Ruby, Delia Sherman Naming the Dead, Paul J. McAuley The Stork-Men, Juan Goytisolo White, Tim Lebbon - The scariest story here, a post apocalyptic monster nightmare. One of the best monster stories I think I've ever read. At Reparata, Jeffrey Ford Skin So Green and Fine, Wendy Wheeler Small Song, Gary A. Braunbeck - Magical and brilliant. This, along with the Chop Girl, strike an emotional chord that nothing else in the book really comes close to. The Emperor's Old Bones Gemma Files - A slam bang action adventure story with a horrifying core. Think Empire of the Sun if the main character went totally evil. The Duke of Wellington Misplaces His Horse Susanna Clarke The Kiss, Tia V. Travis - A sweeping love story turned sour, then turned into one of pure revenge. Amazing. A dark, fairy tale ending, and I mean DARK fairy tale. New authors to me that really stood out were Gary Braunbeck, Gemma Files, Tia V. Travis, and Paul J. McAuley. And I love everything that Michael Marshall Smith writes. He is one of the most underrated genre authors out there. Jeffrey Ford, Ursula K LeGuin and Gene Wolfe are pure genius.

    This is the first of this anthology series that I've read, but it was a very refreshing and entertaining look at the world of imaginative fiction. I'm definitely going to keep my eye out for the other instalments. After reading a collection of short stories and poems like this, you realise how horribly dull the mainstream fantasy/horror market can be, compared to what is written by authors operating in the periphery. This truly is the *best* in Fantasy and Horror, or at least, it is certainly muc This is the first of this anthology series that I've read, but it was a very refreshing and entertaining look at the world of imaginative fiction. I'm definitely going to keep my eye out for the other instalments. After reading a collection of short stories and poems like this, you realise how horribly dull the mainstream fantasy/horror market can be, compared to what is written by authors operating in the periphery. This truly is the *best* in Fantasy and Horror, or at least, it is certainly much better than much of the material that gets put out on the mass market. The stories range from magical realism to folkloric adaptions to just plain old ghost and horror stories and fantastic tales. The material is extremely varied, and will hold interesting bits and pieces for many types of readers. Here's a selection of my favourites: Neil Gaiman - "Harlequin Valentine" [A typical Gaiman piece, nicely dirty and original] Thomas Wharton - "The Paper-Thin Garden" [A beautifully evocative concept, worked out brilliantly in only a couple of pages] Michael Marshall Smith - "Welcome" [Nicely melancholic piece about a man slowly fading from this world] Tim Lebbon - "White" [Good old fashioned 'monsters kill occupants of a snowed-in cabin one by one', but superbly done, with great atmosphere] Charles de Lint - "Pixel Pixies" [original and funny folkloric fantasy in an everyday setting] Also, the extensive overview (200+ pages) of new work in these areas of fiction is indispensible for those who follow the field in detail.

    Sorry for virtually the same review on whole anthology set I own a trade sized paper back. I started this anthology with the 5th Annual and I loved it so much I started collecting the whole set by signing up for pre-orders with the book store. What sets this anthology apart from many others is that I always find two or three gems within its pages, many liked stories and very few I have to force myself through.

More importantly, from those people I have noted who read these anthologies too, they say the same thing. I rated this whole anthology based on the variety of the stories within, how many people seem to report finding the same ratio of gems & well received stories. I am happy to own this whole anthology and keep them in excellent shape, no matter how many times I have read them.
