This thoroughly whimsical collection of stories is very likely to appeal to fans of the editor’s work. As a noted fabulist, Peter Beagle has collected an excellent set of stories that range from modern fairy tales to literary fantasy that blend together in a fairly seamless whole. The inclusion of the Mythago Wood short story (the original version upon which the novel is based) by Robert Holdstock at the end of the volume is a welcome addition and appears right before a concluding piece that reminded me of Ray Bradbury.
