About the Book

Diana Wynne Jones's personal choice of favorite fantasy writing is a treat for all fans - and the perfect introduction for anyone coming to this genre for the first time. This collection contains stories from some of the best fantasy writers of all time.
With stories including extracts from classics to modern favorites, this is a comprehensive and satisfying anthology. There are humorous stories by E. Nesbit, Eva Ibbotson, and Isaac Asimov; tales in a darker mood from Andre Norton and Joan Aiken; and plenty of dragons, witches, wizards, and other magical creatures throughout. A typically intriguing new story from Diana Wynne Jones herself brings the collection right up to date.
