Summary (IBList user synopsis):

One of our most enduring, universal myths is that of the Green Man - the spirit who stands for Nature in its most wild and untamed form, a man with leaves for hair, who dwells deep within the mythic forest. Through the ages and around the world, the Green Man and other nature spirits have appeared in stories, songs, and artwork, as well as many beloved fantasy novels, from Tolkien's Lord of the Rings to Charles de Lint's Forests of the Heart.

Now Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling, the award-winning editors of over twenty anthologies, have gathered some of today's finest writers of magical fiction - including the best-selling Neil Gaiman (American Gods), Jane Yolen (Briar Rose), Gregory Maguire (Wicked), and Patricia A. McKillip (The Tower at Stony Wood) - each interpreting the spirits of nature in short stories and poetry. Windling, author of a regular column about myth for Realms of Fantasy, provides an illuminating, informative introduction to the history and tradition of the Green Man. Folklorist and artist Charles Vess (Stardust) brings his stellar eye and brush to the decorations.

The Green Man, the most fascinating collection yet from the team of Datlow and Windling, is required reading - not only for fans of fantasy fiction, but for all readers interested in mythology and the mysteries of the wilderness.
