Summary (From the publisher):

The Mammoth Book of Fantasy brings together the great masters and originators of the form, such as George Macdonald and Lord Dunsany, through the great days of Robert E. Howard, Michael Moorcock and the inspiration of Lord of the Rings, to today's craftsmen of fantasy including James Blaylock, Michael Swanwick, Tanith Lee and Louise Cooper.

Yesterday Was Monday, in which Theodore Stugeon reveals that our world is all illusion and a man wakes up trapped outside time and sees the world as it really is.

The Valley of the Worm, by Robert E. Howard, the creator of Conan, where a warrior relives a past life where he is pitted against the monster from Hell.

Darkrose and Diamond, a new Earthsea story by Ursula K. LeGuin.

The Wall Around the World by Theodore Cogswell, which might almost be seen as a forerunner to Harry Potter, where a young boy has to master flight on a broomstick in order to escape the world in which he has become trapped.

In The Bells of Shoredan, Roger Zelazny brings Dilvish the Damned back from Hell to seek his revenge.

...plus tales from Jack Vance, Darrell Schweitzer, Patricia McKillip, Charles de Lint, Lisa Goldstein and many more.
