Summary (From the publisher):

Bram Stoker Award-winning editor Al Sarrantonio follows up his critically acclaimed Redshift with the fantasy publishing event of the year. Flights: Extreme Visions of Fantasy is an all-new daring, star-packed anthology showcasing some of the genre's biggest names – and best newcomers.

In Redshift: Extreme Visions of Speculative Fiction, Al Sarrantonio handpicked thirty extraordinary works from established masters and promising newcomers in the field of speculative fiction. The result was an anthology that continued the science fiction landmark "Dangerous Visions' tradition of literate, cohesive, well-plotted stories untrammelled by inhibitions or prohibitions" (Chicago Sun-Times).

Now Sarrantonio has assembled another stellar assortment of bestselling and award-winning authors and challenged them to come up with the best fantasy story they've ever written – the one they've always wanted to write – with literary excellence in mind and without restrictions of any kind. The result is Flights: Extreme Visions of Fantasy -- a highly original collection that sets the standard for fantasy in the twenty-first century. Fantasy as literature. Fantasy that reinvigorates and expands the field's horizons. Fantasy that takes the reader into the next millennium of human imagination…
