Unicorns: Not just for virgins anymore. Here are sixteen lovely, powerful, intricate, and unexpected unicorn tales from fantasy icons including Garth Nix, Peter S. Beagle, Patricia A. McKillip, Bruce Coville, Carrie Vaughn, and more. In this volume you will find two would-be hunters who enlist an innkeeper to find a priest hiding the secret of the last unicorn. A time traveler tries to corral an unruly mythological beast that might never have existed at all. The lover and ex-boyfriend of a dying woman join forces to find a miraculous remedy in New York City. And a small-town writer of historical romances discovers a sliver of a mysterious horn in a slice of apple pie.

Reviews for The Unicorn Anthology

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. Beagle and Jacob Weisman On The New Voices of Fantasy Booklist SciFi/Fantasy/Horror Spotlight - Top 10 Barnes & Noble Best Science Fiction and Fantasy Books Geekiverse: 8 Hot Sci-fi and Fantasy Releases The New Voices of Fantasy is a fabulous collection of vivid, surprising, and remarkable stories. Highly recommended. --Kate Elliott, author of Court of Fives [STARRED REVIEW] This excellent anthology showcases up-and-coming speculative fiction writers, many of whom have received award nominations and critical attention to support their status as future influencers of the genre. Fantasy legend Beagle and Tachyon publisher Weisman have provided a valuable snapshot of SF/F's newest generation of writers. --Publishers Weekly [STARRED REVIEW] A stellar anthology that proves not only that fantasy is alive and well, but that it will be for years to come. --Kirkus [STARRED REVIEW] This anthology represents some of the most exciting and interesting work in the fantasy field today, and anyone interested in the genre should read it immediately. --Booklist For readers who are anticipating the end of HBO's Game of Thrones and looking for new fantasy authors to follow, this 19-story-strong collection provides plenty to sample. --Library Journal
