Salon Fantastique: Thirty Original Tales of Fantasy(2006)
An anthology of stories edited by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling
Here are original stories that straddle the borderline between "fantasy" and "mainstream" fiction, stories both bright and dark in tone (without straying into the realm of horror fiction). Sometimes set in the contemporary or historical world, sometimes pure fantasy or an imagined "history," these are striking, fresh, finely crafted works that demonstrate the best the short story form has to offer. Among the authors included are Delia Sherman, Peter Beagle, Garth Nix, Pat Murphy, Jeffrey Ford, Kelly Link, Margo Lanagan, Susanna Clarke, Gregory Maguire, and Lucius Shepard.
