Three decades have passed since the great seer Donald A. Wollheim founded Daw as a place for some of the best fantasy and science fiction works to have a home. This 30th Anniversary Daw Fantasy anthology provides strong stories that run the gamut of the genre from some of the more renowned writers to the future stars. The stories pay homage to the company, but the contributors including the editor pay deference to the deceased founding father. Each tale is new, but more important well written as if each writer understood whom they really honor with this collection. Fans of fantasy will enjoy the tales, but also the short introductory blurb that each author adds about Mr. Wollheim (never realized he wrote the tale that Mimic is based on until Michael Shea pointed that out). Great short story book worth reading and hopefully its companion on science fiction holds up as well.
