Summary (From the publisher):


Here 24 of the finest fantasy writers take an idea, and see just how far they can push it. many of these tales are off the wall, some are enough to make your head spin.

The stories are arranged in order of 'weirdness', from the opening 'Senator Bilbo' - when a radical descendant of the famous hobbit tries to introduce immigration control - through to 'The Dark One', a rite of passage story where you discover you are being tested to become the successor to Satan.
