The Green Man: Tales from the Mythic Forest edited by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling
The Green Man: Tales from the Mythic Forest - Neil Gaiman,Terri Windling,Ellen Datlow,Charles Vess

My partner has loved anthologies and short story collections for as long as I've known her. And it's because of her that I've been reading more of them myself. This one is a collection she has adored ever since she read it and I've been meaning to read it for quite a while. Well, I finally did and I really liked it.

 

Obviously, I didn't love ever single story in it. It's difficult to find a short story collection where you adore every story that's in it where there are so many different authors and writing styles. However, I loved the majority of the stories in this collection. Especially that of Katherine Vaz, M. Shayne Bell, and Tanith Lee. Their stories really pulled me in and created a world of intrigue and whimsy. I wish their stories were longer just so I could be in their worlds longer! Great writing all around!

 

If you like fairy tales, folklore, and fantasy, I really think you'll like this. Especially if you know the origins or the lore of The Green Man. And even if you don't, pick this collection up! The introduction at the beginning of the book tells you the story about the Green Man. It's really fascinating and educational!

The Green Man: Tales from the Mythic Forest - Patricia A. McKillip,Charles Vess,Tanith Lee,Michael Cadnum,Gregory Maguire,Jane Yolen,Ellen Datlow,Charles de Lint,Kathe Koja,Nina Kiriki Hoffman,Carol Emshwiller,Jeffrey Ford,Emma Bull,Terri Windling,M. Shayne Bell,Bill Lewis,Midori Snyder,Katherine Vaz This is the second time that I have read this book. The stories aren't bad, but overall they aren't memorable. The only story that I remembered with any clarity before re-reading this was the story by M. Shayne Bell, "The Pagodas of Cilorine", a wonderful tale about Ravel and his childhood. The story is simply charming and worth the price of the book.Other good stories include "Remenets" by Kathe Koja, a story that anyone living in a city will understand and Delia Sherman's :Grand Central Park".
