I have two books of A Chimerical World, Seelie and Unseelie, but somehow I found myself drawn to read this one first. Does that mean I have some affinity for the frightening side of fae? I’m not sure. But what I found was a really cool collection of radically different tales, and a really great read. The stories are fun, intriguing, surprising, and all with secrets hidden in the dark. These fae are cruel and manipulative, huge and powerful, tiny and strange. Rebecca Leo’s In Plain Sight draws the reader straight in with mystery hiding behind a New Orleans parade. Innocent fairytales morph into Orwellian darkness in David Turnbull’s The Wunderhorn. Quietly scary horror invades Treehouse by Kim Smith. And Britain’s hallowed shores prove of source of many twisted myths and terrors. Fear of Little Men by Mike Pileoor offers a perfect blend of Victorian gothic and steampunk in the middle of the book. But Carmen Tudor’s haunting Faerie Stories and the Bean Nighe is surely my favorite. You’ll find grim humor, classic accents, horror, magic and fun in this collection, something for everyone with any turn of interest in chimerical strangeness. But be aware, by the end you’ll hear a voice crying, “Run... They’re coming,” and you’d better obey. Disclosure: I hosted one of the authors during a blog tour and was delighted to get a chance to get a free ecopy of the book.

An excellent compendium of the faerie world, at least the darker side of it. I particularly enjoyed "Prey of the Boggart" and "Wonderland", with "Maestro" being one of the darker pieces. I hope to see another anthology put together.
