Praise for The Unicorn Anthology Well worth reading... --NY Journal of Books Unicorns in literature are fascinating, evocative, mysterious, and elusive, and with The Unicorn Anthology, editors Peter S. Beagle--himself of unicorn fame--and Jacob Weisman invite continued appreciation of the legendary beast, drawing it beyond its familiar medieval framework. --Foreword Unicorns are a rare and wondrous breed; fortunately for us, stories about them are a little easier to find. Peter S. Beagle's new anthology contains a marvellous collection of stories about the animal that probably never existed, but that we still can't stop dreaming about. Like the creature itself, the stories are wild and wistful, graceful and glorious, kind and crazy. Everything we need to help us believe . . . in something worth believing in. --Simon R. Green, author of Night Fall and Blue Moon Rising What a treasure trove! This anthology is filled with stories that will surprise, fascinate, and delight you. From an Arizona ghost town where souls are healed to a medieval European forest to the middle of an elephant herd in Persia, there are so many gems to be found! --Sarah Beth Durst, award-winning author of the Queens of Renthia series Between these pages you'll find tales that are as mysterious and arresting as any creature of myth and legend. The Unicorn Anthology returned me to the stories of writers I already loved and introduced me to the stories of writers I know I will come to love. --Kevin Brockmeier, author of A Brief History of the Dead Praise for co-editors Peter S.
