Overall, I was a bit disappointed with this collection. Some of the stories didn't work for me. Yet, there are some gems in here that make this book a keeper, just for those stories. The standout tales in this collection were:A Troll and Two Roses by Patricia A. McKillipThe Thirteenth Fey by Jane Yolen Lullaby for a Changeling by Nicholas Stuart GrayBrat by Theodore Sturgeon (Simply hilarious look at changelings! Must read more Sturgeon!)Wild Garlic by William F. Wu (Chinese-American protagonist, chilling ghost story with foxwomen)The Stranger by Shulamith OppenheimThe Box of All Possibility by Z. GreenstaffRhian and Garanhir by Grail UndwinThe Woodcutter's Daughter by Alison Uttley (my favorite. Very like some of my all-time beloved fairy tale reads).Touk's House by Robin McKinley (another fairy tale-great read)The Boy Who Dreamed of Tir Na N-Og by Michael M. McNamaraI did not like these at all:Spirit Places by Keith Taylor (it was really boring)The Five Black Swans by Sylvia Townsend Warner (it seemed pointless)Sad And Confounding But Well-WrittenThe Erlking by Angela CarterBizarre Yet InterestingPrince Shadowbow by Sheri S. TepperGood But Too Slow-MovingThe Snow Fairy by M. Lucie Chin (I loved the Chinese Folklore aspects)Indifferent AboutThe Seekers of Dreams by Felix Marti-IbanezBride by Steven R. BoyettCrowley and the Leprechaun by Gregory FrostThe Antrim Hills by Mildred Downey Broxon (Rather bleak. It captured the cold nature of the Fae very well)It also had poetry but some reason, the poetry didn't really mesh well with the prose to me.I'm glad I read this collection but I hope that I find the next faery anthologies in my tbr pile to be more interesting and moving than this one.
Lullaby for a changling, wild garlic, the Woodcutter's daughter, the Erlking, the Snow Fairy, Spirit Places, all very good. 13th Fey, Troll & Two roses, Touk's House, I read and relished in other books by their authors. I liked the variety of traditions used, though some were probably mishandled culturally.
