Stories is a collection of short stories from many of the modern popular authors. Fantasy authors are mixed in with more mainstream, and all have written a new short story for the book. Inspired by the phrase “And then what happened?” the book is full of gems.
My favourite story was by Joanne Harris. Called Wildfire in Manhattan, it tells of a Manhattan where gods are hiding from each other and other supernatural beings, and is almost worth the full anthology alone. I also found Elizabeth Hand through this book, with a beautifully written story about early flight and love.
