Editorial Reviews


“The VanderMeers have compiled an eminently readable collection of stories from authors around the world, seeking to introduce fantasy lovers to many rarely seen and underappreciated gems while still including a handful of more well-known authors to balance the mix. . . . This quintessential anthology is destined to become the standard by which future fantasy classic anthologies are measured. . . . [A] must-have anthology.”
Kirkus Reviews, “SF/F/H Novels, Short Stories, and Sequels to Look for in July”

“The VanderMeers bring to fantasy the same monumental efforts at curation and translation that brought about the massive, absolutely essential 2016 anthology The Big Book of Science Fiction. . . . [This] collection traces the development of an entire genre and places it into glorious context.”

“Invaluable. . . . Varied and textured examples of fantasy in literature that readers and students may not have been exposed to previously.”
The Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star

“An impressive cross-section of early fantasy in this fascinating anthology of 90 stories. . . . This sweeping panorama of fantasy is a must-have for those interested in the roots of modern fantasy, and it gives a welcome introduction to many unexpected delights.”
Publishers Weekly

“Dozens upon dozens of seminal fantasy stories, some well-known and others delightfully rescued from obscurity. . . . Like its SF counterpart, this dense and exhaustive collection would serve as an admirable survey course for the genre.”
Kirkus Reviews
