Product Description

From School Library Journal

The hidden turnings in these 12 stories include unexpected twists in space and occasionally time, along with the ability to "lead the reader around some hidden turning of the mind into remarkable new places," as noted by Jones in her introduction. Most of the stories run from 8 to 16 pages; among the contributors are Robert Westall, Helen Cresswell, and Tanith Lee. Themes and moods vary, but many of the stories speak with a decidedly British accent, which is entirely in harmony with tales of such wondrous folk as Garry Kilworth's "Dogfaerie" and the 13th-century monk who finds himself at a 20th-century rock festival in Mary Rayner's "The Vision." Jones appears as author as well as editor with "The Master," an unusual mix of horror fantasy and technological science fiction. The longest story is Roger Zelazny's "Kalifriki of the Thread," a masterfully constructed odyssey of hunter and prey through time and worlds utterly unlike our own. Some of the shorter stories could be useful read-alouds for a middle-school audience (usually horror fans to begin with). Consider Terry Pratchett's "Turntables of the Night," which introduces a pair of bumbling disc jockeys to Death, the ultimate collector. --Susan L. Rogers, Chestnut Hill Academy, PA
