I enjoyed this collection of short stories. Some of my favorite stories were George R.R. Martin's "Path of the Dragon" which gave some insight into Daenarys Targaryen and Sherwood Smith's "Mom and Dad on the Home Front," which illustrated what parents go through when the children have otherworldly adventures.

From back cover: Tales As Deep As Legend And As New As Dawn Acclaimed editor David G. Hartwell has gathered a harvest of shimmering beauty and powerful writing in this inaugural volume of the very best fantasy from the last year. Established masters rub elbows with rising stars in this outstanding collection of short stories rich with imagined lands and finely etched, unforgettable characters. Travel to distant realms -- and around the block -- with stories by: Terry Goodkind, Nicola Griffith, Nalo Hopkinson, George R.R. Martin, Robert Sheckley, Michael Swanwick and others.

This is a very good collection! Besides the above-named authors, there are stories by Sherwood Smith, Storm Constantine, Charles de Lint, Gene Wolfe, and a bunch of others.
