The Faery Reel: Tales from the Twilight Realm

The Faery Reel: Tales from the Twilight Realm - Patricia A. McKillip, Charles Vess, Tanith Lee, Gregory Maguire, Ellen Datlow, Charles de Lint, Nina Kiriki Hoffman, Kelly Link, Jeffrey Ford, A.M. Dellamonica, Emma Bull, Terri Windling, Gregory Frost, Ellen Steiber, Hiromi Goto, Bill Congreve, Nan Fry, Steve Berman, Bruc Being an anthology there's something for everyone in here. While several of the stories are very typical Western/British faeries, there are plenty of stories that take fairie-like creatures from other cultural lore and form stories around them, ranging from Japanese, Brazilian, Filipino... It was a very pleasant surprise. And not all of the stories are about fairies whisking away human children or Fairy Courts. There is tons of variety and unique variations and spins on old legends.
