This anthology contains never before published stories by masters of fantasy Neil Gaiman Eoin Colfer Garth Nix and a magical lineup of writersThroughout the ages the wizard has claimed a spot in human culture from the shadowy spiritual leaders of early man to precocious characters in blockbuster films Today s wizards are subtle in their powers discerning in their ways and in the hands of modern fantasists likely than ever to capture readers imaginationsThe Witch s Headstone by Neil Gaiman A story that ll be a part of Gaiman s soon to be released book The Graveyard about a boy who grew up in the graveyard He asks the uestion whether people who take their own lives become happier afterwards It s like the people who believe they ll be happy if they go and live somewhere else but who learn it doesn t work that way Wherever you go you take yourself with you Holly and Iron by Garth Nix Only one woman possesses two kinds of magic enough to unite two kingdoms that have been at war for so long Running away from one s destiny is futile if it meant the unification of all Slightly reminiscent of the Arthurian legend of the sword in the stone Color Vision by Mary Rosenblum What if you could see colors in sounds How would you move about in the world A promising story but tended to get confusing towards at the end with too many elements thrown in the mix The Ruby Incomparable by Kage Baker I loved this story of a headstrong daughter from the marriage of the purest evil and the purest Good I wish that the author would make a novel out of this story of Svnae of her various adventures and exploits Had a fantastic time reading it A Fowl Tale by Eoin Colfer A famished dove spins a tale worthy of a meal as was the custom in the old days but perhaps not the exact truth What ll happen to him when he s found out Enjoyable short story on all accounts Slipping Sideways Through Eternity by Jane Yolen Millions of devout Jews set a place for the prophet Elijah at the family table every Passover what would happen if he does actually show up A shade too religious for my taste containing uite a narrative of the Holocaust and the Jewish Diaspora The Stranger s Hands by Tad Williams What if you could obtain your Heart s desire through the use of magic from the most evil wizard of the time would you do so What if you yourself have no idea of your true Heart s desire would you risk it anyways Naming Day by Patricia McKillip This provided a sorcery student a lesson in breaking the rules and of putting your family first before anything else I so wanted to find out what was Averil s true name but I guess that s a secret shared between mother daughter Winter s Wife by Elizabeth Hand An Icelandic bride in modern Maine makes elemental magic Hey with a name like mine where else you gonna find a wife uite true Mr Winter A Diorama of the Infernal Regions or The Devil s Ninth uestion by Andy Duncan A confusing tale about a blessed girl having had the opportunity to meeting the widow of Flatland House and her 473 dead friends singing a duet with the Devil s son in law and earning a wizard s anger by setting the former free Barrens Dance by Peter Beagle A story about the intricacies of love and lust obsession and devotion and of a wizard who performs his magic not by spells or wand waving but by dancing Stone Man by Nancy Kress A story with a very cocky modern tone to it populated by the brotherhood of wizards in a modern day city Not to my liking due to all the peppering of expletives and the abruptness of its ending The Manticore Spell by Jeffrey Ford What goes around comes around even in the case of wizards and magical beasts The story gets to be long winded in its pacing so it might prove to be boring to some Zinder by Tanith Lee What begins as your ordinary oft used Ugly Duckling story proves to be something else I love Zinder of the possibilities that are present with what he already possesses and of his conscious decision to use them for the good and never expecting anything in exchange Billy and the Wizard by Terry Bisson I can t make sense of this short story of a boy finding the Devil rummaging in his garage looking for a wizard trapped in a magazine The Magikkers by Terry Dowling What is the difference between a magician and a magikker I never thought that there was a difference at first Better pick carefully if you can only perform one magical act your entire life as a magikker Now if it were me I d definitely be the predictable type The Magic Animal by Gene Wolfe If you had the gift of understanding the speech of animals would you help the world to be a better place Take care of what you are prepared to sacrifice it may lead to a broken heart I liked the references to Merlin the Lady of the Lake Stonefather by Orson Scott Card A boy born in poverty who had to deal with contempt his entire life found himself relying on his natural abilities and wit to survive in a city populated by watermagesBook Details

While reading this book I just came across this article s pretty unusual that an anthology ever gets than 3 stars from me after all tastes differ and in any random selection there s bound to be a few stories I think are great and a few that don t do much for me However this anthology was really really good I d say 45 starsContents Neil Gaiman The Witch s Headstone 2008 Locus Award winner for best Novelette The story later turned out to be a chapter in The Graveyard Book so I d already read it But it was worth reading againGarth Nix Holly and Iron A female Robin Hood in an alternate history Ingland is shaken when her poor tactics lead to her sister s death Will she be able to find a way to unite a divided countryMary Rosenblum Color Vision I ve read Rosenblum s first two novels because they were part of the Del Rey Discovery series which featured a bunch of great new authors but apparently she s published 8 books since then I might have to try some catching up This story is a teen sci fi piece about how a young girl s synaesthesia turns out to be a lifesaver when the new school principal turns out to be a villain from another worldKage Baker The Ruby Incomparable Kage Baker is truly missed I only have a few books by her to read and I ve sort of been saving them since I know no are coming Here she tells the tale of a fairy tale marriage between Pure good and Pure evil The story is available for free online Colfer s The Fowl s Tale I m not a huge Colfer fan didn t like Artemis Fowl but this story s only 5 pages long so it doesn t grate Amusing tale of a greedy parrot who shows up at court with a tale to tell Jane Yolen Slipping Sideways Through Eternity A modern Jewish girl meets the Prophet Elijah who takes her on a trip through time helps her understand her heritage and inspires her for the futureTad Williams The Stranger s Hands A village takes in two wanderers a man who seems to have lost his wits in an injury and his caretaker Soon it is discovered that some who touch the disabled man s hands have their heart s desire magically granted Soon the needy flock to the town in hopes of having their wishes granted But with greater exposure comes the revelation that the village s miracle man is or was actually one of the most powerful dangerous and evil wizards around Is there some trick here A well crafted and thought provoking talePatricia A McKillip Naming Day A young woman eagerly anticipates her naming day when her magical academy conducts a ceremony in which the students choose their magical name But her mother has a lesson about values to teach her daughterElizabeth Hand Winter s Wife Hand is really good at short stories and this in no exception This was probably my favorite in the book about a mountain man from Maine who marries a bride from Iceland that he met on the Internet When a developer starts destroying ancient trees something must be done Andy Duncan A Diorama of the Infernal Regions or The Devil s Ninth uestion I d read this Southern Gothic piece before in Fantasy The Best of the Year 2008 but again it was worth re reading Basically a girl runs away from working in a sideshow ends up living in a witch s house full of ghosts and meets the devil but there s to it than thatPeter S Beagle Barrens Dance The reason I got this book I was looking for from Peter Beagle This story is redolent of ancient myth as it tells the story of what a woman must do to escape an evil wizard s unwanted advancesNancy Kress Stone Man Under stress a boy discovers he has heretofore unknown magical powers it loses him a friend but gains him a new group of friends and a mission in life Not Kress best but not badJeffrey Ford The Manticore Spell A monster might be dangerous but also sublime endangered and strangely beautiful Should every monster be killedTanith Lee Zinder By day Zinder is a deformed dwarf who lives in an impoverished village tormented by ignorant bullies But by night he is a powerful wizard who travels the world dispensing advice and magical boons amid glittering courts and doing good deeds for the needy Kind of a retelling of the Biblical tale that Jesus may be disguised as any lowly beggar written with Lee s own poetic language and lovely imagery Terry Bisson Billy and the Wizard Short surreal tale of a boy who finds a wizard in his garage Not my favorite but I can see why others would like itTerry Dowling The Magikkers If someone told you you had only enough magic for one true spell and then asked you to give away that magic would you Gene Wolfe The Magic Animal Sometimes I love Gene Wolfe and at other times I feel that his stories go off track due to their ambition This Arthurian tale verges toward the latter but there are still some lovely aspects to itOrson Scott Card Stonefather This novella is apparently in the world of Card s Mithermages series 2 books published so far haven t read either yet However I probably will this is a good if a bit typical high fantasy story with an original take on earthwater magic and an interesting setup
