Summary (From the publisher):

For all lovers of magic and sorcery comes a stunning new collection of original stories from some of the finest fantasy writers of our time, celebrating the mysterious realms of the beyond, which only the sorcerer can unlock.

Every age has its shamans and sorcerers; the power of the magic they can wield has held generations in its thrall since the very earliest times. Sorcerers are figures of fascination and fear, for it is they who know the true power of the enchanted realms that lie beyond our everyday reality. For ages these figures have permeated our myths and legends: Merlin, Gandalf, Prospero, Morgan le Fay, Circe, Faust and the Pied Piper: every culture recognises the power of spellcraft and has enshrined it in its stories.

Now Katherine Kerr - herself the creator of a marvellous magician, Nevyn - has brought together the talents of some of the finest writers working in the genre today, so that we can enjoy the magic they weave.
