A Fantasy Anthology by Kathy Ann Trueman is a stunning collection of magical short stories. In "The Sow's Ear" the opening short story in the collection, previously published in Marion Zimmer Bradley's "Swords and Sorcerers" anthology series, Janell is a young mage who makes her living unweaving spells. She often takes advantage of her customers' despair in order to make a hefty profit. But when a customer isn't what they seem, Janell finds that her greed may be her downfall. Fans of "The Sow's Ear" will be happy to know that Truman has included a sequel, "Thief from Thief", in this anthology. The other stories are more varied in their plot, but equally as enjoyable. "Friends in Spite" tells the adventure of an unlikely pairing, a vampire and a warrior who specializes in hunting monsters. In "The God's Reading", the final story in the collection, Yula enters a contest to have her wish granted--to have Apollo read her poetry.

No matter the tale, Kathy Ann Trueman can tell it mesmerizingly. Her tales draw the reader in with action and thrills mixed with a healthy dose of fun and humor. Her book is a wonderful collection for fantasy lovers. Fans of the works of Tad Williams, Terry Brooks, and Marion Zimmer Bradley should add Kathy Ann Trueman to their list of favorite authors. Greenspell was a fun and exciting read that left me wanting more. I highly recommend this collection, and I look forward to following Trueman's career and reading more of her imaginative tales.
