(Amy) A collection of Tanya Huff's delightful stories. I desperately need to re-read this, but I do recall being enchanted by the slices of time from universes she'd created elsewhere, and entertained by the standalone stories as well.

These stories show Tany Huff's amazing diversity. There are stories of quiet, haunting horror; stories of magic and of mystery; and even a wonderfully tongue-in-cheek space opera story. This collection shows the breadth of Huff's skills, and she proves that she is quite capable of delivering a mystery with a private detective turned vampire, or an attack of a foot-and-a-half long dragon, or a tale of ghosts in the subway that will incite feelings of slight claustrophobic for a day or two.I highly suggest this collection of Huff's 15 short stories from the late 80's thru the late 90's

What Ho, Magic! is the first of what is hopefully several collections of short stories by Tanya Huff. There are stories of quiet, haunting horror; stories of magic and of mystery; and even a wonderfully tongue-in-cheek space opera story. This collection shows the breadth of Huff's skills, and she proves that she is quite capable of delivering a mystery with a private detective turned vampire, or an attack of a foot-and-a-half long dragon, or a tale of ghosts in the subway that will incite feelings of slight claustrophobic for a day or two. Her characters are strong and entirely human; well, the vampire *was* a human at one point. In the story 'Shing Li-Ung,' Huff tells a tale of a sister and brother finding their heritage in the melting pot of cultures in modern Toronto. 'The Chase is On' tells us of a starship captain, most emphatically *not* a smuggler, but she does occasionally stray on the odd side of the law. Huff even brings magic into the sports arena with the delightful and thought-provoking 'A Midsummer Night's Dream Team.' High Elves playing basketball? Tolkien would have conniptions--or laugh his head off in approval.
