--They'd be an Army in Autumn by Shane Porteous
I should also mention Gammer Lobstone by Sandra Unerman, which turned out to be my favorite of the collection.
The other stories certainly have their merit. My biggest problem with the anthology is that it held several typos that occasionally took me out of the stories, and a few could have used a little extra attention on the development side of things. But overall a fun look at the fantasy genre, and worth a read.
Also of primary interest is "Variant Readings" by Frank Roger, a story about a strange bookstore that sells versions of books from alternate universes. Gotta love stories that transcend universes!.
The other fantasy stories I can really usually sink my teeth into. Like:
Molly Neely’s most clever Zombie story.
Frank Roger’s very cool alternate history(?) bookstore.
And especially Tony Conaway’s brilliant story about… yeah. I won’t give that away. It would be too easy to say that his story sucks, because that’s just a bad pun I usually reserve for vampire stories. It’ll have to be enough for me to say that I’d’ve never imagined such a weird and wonderful tale could be made out of this kind of creature and situation. So cool and so funny. The highlight of the book.
I particularly enjoyed Dodson, They'd be an Army in Autumn, Variant Readings, and Gammer Lobstone. Don't get me wrong, all of these stories are great -- if your tastes are even slightly different than mine, you may find you relate to some of the other stories far better. Each one had enough to draw me in and keep me turning the pages.
You'll find a pleasant mix of genres in the stories (though all focused upon fantasy, of course) ranging from high fantasy to folk tale to urban fantasy! The stories are well constructed and charming!
If you're in the mood to read a series of good short stories from a wide array of perspectives, I highly recommend this book!
That said, there are also some that, unfortunately, really didn't work for me - some stories lacked depth or felt rushed, and there were a number that just needed a good edit/proof-read.
Worth picking up for the better ones, though you may find yourself skipping through some others.
