Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0192803824, Paperback)

An anthology of fantasy stories selected by the eminent Medievalist and Fantasy scholar Tom Shippey, The Oxford Book of Fantasy Stories gathers together thirty-one tales brimming over with imagination. This rich and intriguing collection of fantasy stories features classic figures--the Devil, trolls and werewolves, sorcerers and dragons--that have long been a part of the human psyche. The authors of these marvelous tales draw upon a deep well of images, characters, and landscapes with great imagination and subtlety. Featuring writers as diverse as John Buchan and Mervyn Peake, Angela Carter and Terry Pratchett, this is an anthology for the newcomer and dedicated fan alike.

(see all 2 descriptions)

A century's worth of the exotic and the fantastic. The stories range from Richard Garnett's "The Demon Pope," a story on soul-selling, to Terry Prachett's amusing "Troll Bridge, " in which Cohen the Barbarian philosophizes on the decline of magic.
