Overview

Come for a ride and discover equines that are bold and beautiful, helper and hinderer, dangerous and desired. There are horses being constructed on Mars, conjured in a magician's laboratory or summoned by a spell. Some will aid their rider in getting the girl, and others are planning revenge. Editor Evey Brett has handpicked fantastical tales of horse and rider--stories both old and new that take the reader to distant lands, other worlds, and nightmare realms. Visit the past, the present and the future along with a number of memorable steeds, but be careful which mount you choose, for that pony may either help you find your true love or lure you to your doom...
