Devoured this anthology in just a handful of days. If you enjoy Fantastic fiction that straddles the boundary between true magic and illusion, this book is for you. (Fun fact, a UofO alumni contributed to the creation of this book, so support local ;) )

There are some incredible stories here. As with most collections, there are some that weren't for me, but mostly, this was a wonderful read. The stories stayed in my mind for awhile.
