    I got this anthology because it included stories by two of my favorite authors, Diana Wynne Jones and Martha Wells. Unfortunately, they both turned out to be stories I had previously read. They were good, although not either author's very best. I had also already read Sharon Shinn's "The Double-edged Sword," which I enjoyed much more than her novels (I tend to find her too... saccharine is definitely not quite the word, nor is romantic. Too close to romance as a genre? Anyway.) and Nina K. Hoffm I got this anthology because it included stories by two of my favorite authors, Diana Wynne Jones and Martha Wells. Unfortunately, they both turned out to be stories I had previously read. They were good, although not either author's very best. I had also already read Sharon Shinn's "The Double-edged Sword," which I enjoyed much more than her novels (I tend to find her too... saccharine is definitely not quite the word, nor is romantic. Too close to romance as a genre? Anyway.) and Nina K. Hoffman's "Sea Air" (again, good). Of the stories I hadn't already read my favorites were "The Osteomancer's Son" by Greg van Eekhout and "The Christmas Witch" by M. Rickert. Those were especially interesting as they almost seemed like a themed pair: small children caught up in dark, bone-related powers and the incomprehensible adult world. Other stories I liked: Beagle's "Four Fables" (which really is fables and not a story per se) and Modesitt's "Ghost Mission". MacLeod's "Bonny Boy," Waldrop's "Thin, on the Ground," and Grant's "Yours Etc" were interesting but not so much so that I was motivated to seek out more by those authors. The rest I either didn't enjoy or didn't read. (See how that gets me out of specifying?)

    I've been reading a lot of anthologies lately for some reason. I really liked the selection here - a good read, and good stories.
