Review:

"Brockmeier (The Brief History of the Dead) compiles 20 eclectic and exceptional stories that 'graft' fantasy with realistic fiction for this third installment of the annual anthology cofounded by Ann and Jeff VanderMeer. Standout selections include Stephen King's poignant 'The New York Times at Special Bargain Rates,' in which a woman receives a phone call from her recently deceased husband, and two World Fantasy Award finalists: Peter S. Beagle's 'Uncle Chaim and Aunt Rifke and the Angel,' an exploration of redemption and salvation as an angel demands to be a 76-year-old painter's muse, and John Kessel's 'Pride and Prometheus,' a mashup uniting Pride and Prejudice's plain sister, Mary Bennet, and Victor Frankenstein. These and other wildly imaginative tales will appeal to fans of fantasy and literary fiction alike." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

A city in a bottle. Kings. Genies. Jane Austen and Frankenstein. Grandmothers at sea . . . The acclaimed Best American Fantasy series continues with 20 stories chosen by best-selling writer Kevin Brockmeier. With stories by established writers, such as Peter S. Beagle, Laura Kasischke, Jeffrey Ford, and Lisa Goldstein, alongside tales by brilliant newcomers like Kellie Wells, Thomas Glave, Ryan Boudinot, and Rebecca Makkai, Real Unreal delivers a richly diverse experience of contemporary fiction. Guest editor Brockmeier knows fantasy inside and out: he is the recipient of three O. Henry Awards, the Chicago Tribunes Nelson Algren Award, and an Italo Calvino Short Fiction Award. His stories have been published widely, including The New Yorker, The Georgia Review, McSweeney's, and The Oxford American, and have been reprinted in Best American Short Stories, The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror, and the first volume of The Best American Fantasy.
