Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Jane Murphy
This collection of twelve short stories contains a variety of characters and settings that are bound to capture the teen fantasy fan's attention. Each author paints a different portrait of the fey, introducing the world of faerie. "Gallow's Rescue" by Lilith Saintcrow starts off the collection with a wistful look at the seelie. Sarah Hoyt's "An Answer from the North" tells the story of King Albric and Cedric, who challenges the king. Mary Robinette Kowal's "Goodhouse Keeping" gives a modern spin to the fairy realm, complete with Brownie. Paul Crilley's "The Song of the Wind" is a simple love story. Rob Thurman's "First Ball . . . Last Call" chronicles the world's demise and the contrast between the Light and the Dark Fey's power. Jenifer Ruth's "Beauty" tells of a fairy eavesdropping on the human world, while Kerrie Hughes's "Pennyroyal" and Dean Wesley Smith's "Unlocked Gate" are on the darker side. J. A. Pitts "Mushroom Clouds and Fairy Rings" is slightly more whimsical, and Jane Lindskold's "Hunting the Unicorn" tells of kelpie and seelie. Amber Benson's "Green Man" evokes Celtic folklore at its finest. Michelle Sagara's "Anne" sounds like a real woman, a thoughtful baker who lives between the worlds of mortal and other. This collection has something for everyone; it is easy to imagine a teen devouring it on the bus, waiting for soccer practice, or at an orthodontist appointment. Not C. S. Lewis or Tolkien, this small collection would be a welcome addition to any medium-sized library's fantasy collection. Reviewer: Jane Murphy
