From School Library Journal:
Gr 7 Up An exciting anthology of fantasy stories, all set in particularly vivid imaginary places and specially commissioned for this volume. The stories show variety and balance in their length, subject matter and style, featuring both male and female protagonists, some young and some not so young. James P. Blaylock describes a marvelously strange California of giant crabs and artificial dragons in his enchanting mood piece ``Paper Dragons,'' while Robert Westall's charming tale of a lost underground town preserved in the tunnels of a salt mine (``The Big Rock Candy Mountain'') contrasts with the poetic mysticism of Patricia A. McKillip's ``The Old Woman and the Storm.'' Although P. C. Hodgell's ``Stranger Blood'' begins with a confusing presentation of background and family histories, complicated by the fact that every other name seems to begin with K, it rapidly becomes a terrific tale of blood, skulls and magic. Also beguiling are the dry wit of Peter Dickinson's pseudo-historical document ``Flight'' and the extremely appealing heroine in the editor's ``The Stone Fey.'' Well-wrought stories by Jane Yolen, Michael de Larrabeiti and Joan D. Vinge round out this superlative collection. Lyle Blake Smythers, Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.
