From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-9 A sampling of fantasy and science fiction stories by top-flight authors. The editors state that their goal is to stir "a sense of wonder"to give a hint of the "(im-)possible" in these ten original stories of fabulous happenings past, present and future. By and large they succeed. Bruce Coville writes about a boxgiven to a boy by an angel. Sharon Webb and Zilpha Keatley Snyder convey the horror (or delight) of nightmares that come true. Patricia A. McKillip contributes a Baba Yaga story and Jane Yolen a dragon tale. Relating to their novels for children, Diana Wynne Jones offers a Chrestomanci story and Diane Duane a wizardly adventure with Kit and Nita. Charles de Lint creates a strong folkloric atmosphere. And both Patricia MacLachlan and Monica Hughes explore the mystery and wonder of the sea. This is a collection well suited to browsing on a quiet, rainy afternoon. Each story carries readers into another world, creating a small enchantment that will lead many to explore the other writings of these fine authors. The editors have kindly appended a list of the writers' works relating to this book's theme of "imaginative fiction." Anne Connor, Los Angeles Public Library

From Publishers Weekly:

These anthologists, veterans all, have assembled a varied collection of 10 original stories, most of them gentle fantasies with a welcome touch of humor and imagination. Bruce Coville offers an appealing parable of a small boy entrusted by an angel with a special box. Patricia McKillip relates the bargain that the witch Baba Yaga must make with a sorcerer's son, after the crone's magic house shuts her out. In Dianne Wynne Jones's alternate world, recalling both Little Nemo and The White Hotel, child prodigy Carol Oneir's dreams have become bestsellers, only they've stopped and she can't get her dream cast back to work. Diane Duane also considers alternate worlds but her adventurous children take the New York City subway to reach them. Included as well are tales by Yolen, Monica Hughes, Charles de Lint and Zilpha Keatley Snyder.
