Editorial Reviews

“The all-original stories collected here provide a lively cross-section of current science-fiction and fantasy writers… It's a cliche to say there's something for everyone here, but in this surprisingly eclectic anthology there probably is.” - Chicago Tribune, on ROBOTS VS FAIRIES

"These lively, action-packed, and emotional tales by the best writers in sf/fantasy allow readers to root for their favorite team or discover new pleasures in an unfamiliar genre...Exceptional storytelling and well-paced writing make this volume a total delight." - Library Journal, on ROBOTS VS FAIRIES

"The stories range from hilarious to spine-tingling, and each one has its own enchanting qualities...This is a cinematic and well-paced collection and will please both science-fiction and fantasy readers with its variety. Team Robot or Team Fairy? Definitely both." - Booklist, on ROBOTS VS FAIRIES

"The modern revival of fairy tale fiction for adults began in the 20th century (with the stories of Angela Carter and Tanith Lee), and The Starlit Wood is proof that the revival is still going strong. Editors Parisien and Wolfe have brought a wide range of writers together to blaze new trails through the dark of the woods. Whether you're passionate about fairy tales, like I am, or haven't read them since childhood, I recommend this excellent anthology. I simply loved it." - Terri Windling, World Fantasy Award-winning editor of the Snow White, Blood Red series, on THE STARLIT WOOD
