3.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful compilation, but some bad typos 9. August 2004
Von Nick Bogan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
From Mary Shelley's The Mortal Immortal, on p. 90, is the following paragraph:

"Soon after this eventful day, I became the husband of Bertha. I ceased to be the scholar of Cornelius, but I continued his friend. I always felt grateful to him for having, unaware, procured me that Cornelius, but I continued his friend. I always felt grateful to him for having, unaware, procured me that delicious draught of a divine elixir, which instead of curing me of love (sad cure! solitary and joyless remedy for evils which seem blessings to the memor" (Yes, the paragraph ends with "memor")

On p. 96, in the same story:

"This very day I conceived a design by which I may end all--without self-slaughter, without making another man a Cain--an making another man a Cain--an expedition..."

There were also misspellings in previous stories, though I can't cite one at the moment. When a text is unreliable, I mistrust my reading of it, particularly for 19th century works such as are found in the book.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastic is exactly what you will get! 24. Januar 2014
Von Tabitha @ Not Yet Read - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Before the fantasy of our current times there were the classics. Possibly little known to readers of the genre or perchance you're familiar with many of the names that make up the collection in The Treasury of the Fantastic. And fantastic is exactly what you will get!

Being a long time lover of anything fantasy since the first time I set my eyes on something magical it was such a pleasure to read these stories by some of the masters in classic literature. Some of these stories I had already read before and many more it was my first time experiencing. It was an absolute delight to see so of these authors collected here and finding new treasures I hadn't realized really fell into the realm of fantasy. In the foreward there is even a criteria given of how the editors went about selecting which pieces to include. This might help clear things up for us readers if you perusing the name list and wondering why a particular author or other isn't here.

Keeping in mind that these are all works written between the early 1800s to 1923. So you definitely get that old world feel while you're reading. Admittedly, while I do enjoy the occasional classic literature it is not to my preferred reading taste. Mostly because you have to read it slowly to effectively absorb and process the writing. For this reason it took almost 4 months to get through this thick volume when normally I can read an anthology of this size in a month or two. This is not light reading and in my opinion it was best read in between my other novels or occasionally one every few evenings.

Normally when I review collections I give each price an individual rating but there were just too many (44) in this one. Suffice to say many I adored, others were good and very few I slogged through. If you're a classic literature can as well as a lover a fantasy then pick this up and experience some of the earlier works in the genre!
5.0 von 5 Sternen Riches for Readers 2. Dezember 2013
Von Lisa A. Wilt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
A long, long overdue bow to the to the literary masters, male and female, who engaged their creative powers in fantastic imaginings that were loved by students of literature before J. R. R. Tolkien began entertaining his sons with stories of Middle Earth. The telling of fantastic stories started ages before them in the oral legends of the world's peoples, engaging--and disturbing--the minds of eager listeners. Our potential for inventing fascinating fiction will never be bankrupted.
4.0 von 5 Sternen The founding papers of modern fantasy 27. November 2013
Von SteamDave - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Excellent collection detailing the roots of modern fantasy and underscoring the role of imaginative fiction in defining modern Western culture.
The volume offers a selection of well known works - both prose and poetry - and more obscure stories.
Essential reading, and an indispensable addition to a fantasy fan's bookshelf.
Highly recommended.
