Stylistically rooted in fairy tale and mythology, imperceptible landscapes are explored in these opulent stories from a beloved fantasy icon. There are princesses dancing with dead suitors, a knight in love with an official of exotic lineage, and fortune’s fool stealing into the present instead of the future. In one mesmerizing tale, a time-traveling angel is forbidden to intervene in Cotton Mather’s religious ravings, while another narrative finds a wizard seduced in his youth by the Faerie Queen and returning the treasure that is rightfully hers. Bewitching, bittersweet, and deeply intoxicating, this collection draws elements from the fables of history and re-creates them in startlingly magical ways.

I am smitten by this anthology, I absolutely am. It felt almost too indulgent, reading one gem after another in such quick succession. Patricia McKillip reigns supreme in the ranks of fantasy authors, because no one else has such an elegant and precise grasp on Wonder (this I capitalize for emphasis...
