    I first received this book as a gift in 1994. It’s a fun collection!

    I don’t read a lot of anthologies for fun. I usually only read them if I have a story published in them. This collection…took me by surprise. I picked it up on a whim and, as with most collections, didn’t love ALL of it…but a few of these stories are really sticking with me. Wow. What a fun book. Highly recommend to fans of fantasy short stories.

    A good collection of short stories which were all great reads. Aimed at the younger reader it is a great way to let younger fans of fantasy widen their experience of different authors works. I really enjoyed: The Smallest Dragonboy by Anne McCaffrey & The Fable of the Three Princes by Isaac Asimov

    I've been reading quite a bit in the youth/young adult category and hoped this was a book I could share with my grandkids both of whom are avid and fairly mature readers. I found this collection of stories very disappointing though. Most were either entirely predictable or just plain uninteresting. An exception might be "A Dozen of Everything" by Zimmer Bradley and The Fable of the Three Princes" by Azimov, I also liked Anne McCaffery's story but had read it before.

    I have been searching for some short stories for my students and came upon this collection. The only story I really found amusing was "Letters from Camp" which posed as the opposite of "The Veldt" by Ray Bradbury. I am thinking of reading the story with my students but not sure how to tie it into argument writing. However Asimov's introduction is excellent in describing the genre of fantasy.

    I'm still a little stunned that this was my first time reading anything by Asimov. How did I go so long reading fantasy and sci fi without reading any of this work? His fiction contribution was great, but I enjoyed his preface quite a bit. The book really is worth it just for that, although the various stories were also excellent!

    4.5 rounds up to 5 stars. A solid collection, if more aimed at children (lots of child protagonists) than I expected. Great variety of authors and styles and ordered well. I think my favorite might've been the Anne McCaffrey...ah, memories of Pern. 4.5 rounds up to 5 stars. A solid collection, if more aimed at children (lots of child protagonists) than I expected.
