First Firebirds. Then Firebirds Rising. Now there is Firebirds Soaring, the third anthology of original stories by some of today?s finest writers of fantasy and science fiction. These authors, including Nancy Farmer (The Sea of Trolls), Ellen Klages (The Green Glass Sea), Margo Lanagan (Black Juice), and Jane Yolen (The Devil?s Arithmetic), have brought new worlds and Old Magic to life in nineteen remarkable pieces of short fiction.

A great collection, one I really enjoyed. My favorite stories: "Kingmaker," "Singing On a Star," "Flatland," "Ferryman," and "Something Worth Doing." The latter story is really excellent.
