Product Description


"The latest volume in Realms of Wonder, skillfully edited by Toronto writer Julie E. Czerneda, collects 19 thematically linked stories. Although many of the writers are new or little-known, there's not a single dud in the collection. In fact, it's among the strongest anthologies of fantasy fiction in recent memory. . . none of these stories is anything less than solid, and most of them soar. Highly recommended for any reader."

- Quill & Quire

"...well worth the purchase price just for poignant, thought-provoking, powerful stories such as House of Cats, Mountain Challenge, Eggs for Dinner and Last of her Kind. These stories make quite an impact."

- Hi-Rise Newspaper

"Fantastic Companions is overall an enchanting read, interspersed with stories to make you laugh, cry, or think deeper about things you may never have thought of before, This is one of those books to be read with a flashlight under the covers at midnight."

- Tangent Online

Loved it! July 4 2012
By J. S. Carter - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really and truly enjoyed this book to the point that it launched me on a course to pruchase any and every e-book available anthology edited by Julie Czerneda as well as everything Julie Czerneda has written herself. Of course with any anthology there will be some stories I like more or less than others, but this anthology successfuly accomplished what anthologies are supposed to: It made me look up the authors of the stories I liked most and track down and purchase more of their work, a course with which, having taken, I am most thoroughly pelased.

Fun Story June 7 2007
By N. Turner - Published on
Format: Paperback
I bought this book specifically because it has a story by Wen Spencer in it. The story is somewhat different from Spencer books I have read, but it is enchantingly funny and, to me, well worth buying the book to have.
