The Beastly Bride: Tales of the Animal People - Jane Yolen, Ellen Datlow, Christopher Barzak, Ellen Kushner, Marly Youmans, Carol Emshwiller, Johanna Sinisalo, Jeffrey Ford, Terri Windling, Hiromi Goto, Nan Fry, Steve Berman, Midori Snyder, Peter S. Beagle, Richard Bowes, E. Catherine Tobler, Stewart Moore, Shweta Nara Every anthology is a mixed bag, especially when the stories are collected from many authors. Luckily, this is a very nice mix overall. I can't think of a single story that I really disliked, and most of the stories were quite good. For me, the two best were Tanith Lee's The Puma's Daughter and Peter S. Beagle's The Children of the Shark God. There are a lot of great stories in here besides those, though, and I was pleased that merfolk/selkies were well represented.
