Grade 5-8 Thirteen new fantasy and science fiction stories from Isaac Asimov, Gregory Benford, Barry Longyear, Patricia Wrede, and others. The themes may be classiccharacters make a wish, travel in time, talk to dragons or aliens, find a unicorn, woo a princess, do magicdo magicbut there's a twist to each: the wish is called ``Arnold,'' the alien's name is ``Frank,'' Coville's ``Watch out!'' suggests that would-be magicians better read the directions, and Jessica Amanda Salmonson's contribution opens with a teddy bear standing at Heaven's gate. Helfman's sad ``Voices in the Wind'' and a gloomy story by Robert Lawson provide contrast to the generally lighthearted tone. A well-chosen, well-wrought collection.
