Read full description of the books:
It's... an anthology. Some good stories, some not so great. I reviewed each in my statuses as I read, so you can look there if you want summaries. The title doesn't really fit - there weren't many stories I'd consider fantasy in the collection. I think Sci-fi or dystopian won out in numbers, actually. Some horror, cyberpunk, a few steampunk. Oh, and a couple of Fantasy, mostly at the start.
The horror stories (Queen of Sheba & the Phantasy Grotesque stories were the most memorable, and were well written. Which is suitable, given the creepy cover chosen for this 'fantasy' anthology. Queen of Sheba has an old-fashioned horror tale feel to it, while the Phantasy Grotesque one is more modern (I'm not very familiar with the show Dexter, but some parts of the story reminded me of what little I know of it - the 'dark other' or whatever it's called the char. uses to excuse/explain his actions). The werewolf one wasn't bad either, though the creepy factor died off pretty quickly in exchange for the character's soul-searching. Smoke and Mirrors (one of the few Fantasy stories) was good as well - definitely a world I'd like to see more of. I'd almost recommend skipping the first story, though - I found it so dull it almost put me off reading the anthology.
