This volume gathers fantasy stories from the last decade that have never before been collected. Highlights from the 22 stories include "The Tree is My Hat," adventure and horror in the South Seas; "The Night Chough," a Long Sun story; "The Walking Sticks," a humorous tale of a supernatural inheritance; and the very personal "Houston, 1943," lurid adventures in a dream that has no end. This is fantastic fiction at its best.
