As the first international anthology to cover the entire scope of fantastic narrative, Fantastic Worlds presents over fifty tales, myths, and stories, ranging from Genesis to Ovid, Hans Christian Andersen to J.R.R. Tolkien, Edgar Allan Poe to James Thurber, and Franz Kafka to Italo Calvino. Including tales of fairies and elves, ghost stories, high fantasy, and stories of social criticism and the conflict between science and religion, this volume presents a diverse selection of writings that all share the same capacity to liberate the human spirit through the wild mental acrobatics of fantasy.

Reviews

"To date, the best collection of fantastic literature that spans centuries and is international in scope. The only one of its kind to provide both narrative and comment in digestible form. A very welcome text!"--Kathryn D. Marocchino, California Maritime Academy"Fantasy Worlds is clearly the best fantasy collection now available, both in content and concept."--G.R. Thompson, Purdue University"A valuable collection of stories for the study and the classroom....Provocative and insightful."--James Gunn, University of Kansas, Lawrence"This anthology lifts fantastic fiction to the level of...significant literature....[It] should open many eyes to the diversity, richness, and subtler 'wonder' of the fantasy-mode."--John Kinnaird, University of Maryland, College Park"Excellent selection in its diversity and chronolical span."--Professor Torborg Lundell, University of California"A good selection across time and cultures [with] excellent introductory essays."--Torborg Lundell, University of California, Santa Barbara
