Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Redshift was called "the best collection of new science fiction in recent memory" (Chicago Sun-Times). Al Sarrantonio followed up that critically acclaimed anthology with the daring, star-packed collection Flights: Extreme Visions of Fantasy. He challenged some of the genre's biggest names and brightest newcomers to create the fantasy story they'd always wanted to write — with literary excellence in mind and without restrictions of any kind.

Now comes the second volume of the highly original collection that sets the standard for fantasy in the twenty-first century. Fantasy as literature. Fantasy that reinvigorates and expands the field's horizons. Fantasy that takes the reader into the next millennium of human imagination...

Volume II features stories by Patricia A. McKillip, Orson Scott Card, Neil Gaiman, Harry Turtledove, Gene Wolfe, and other masters.

Review:

"Stoker winner Sarrantonio delivers another exciting all-original anthology...a host of high-profile authors who show that fantasy, at its best, can't be defined, only expressed through an ever-changing menu." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

"Among the best anthologies in the unreal arena this year....These are Flights you won't want to miss." Rocky Mountain News

The other commenter is confused. "Flights" is one volume in hardback and trade paperback, but two volumes in mass market paperback. If you get "volume one" and "volume two", both mass market, there will be no overlap in the stories.

Beware -- this is the EXACT same book as Volume I, only there are half as many stories. This is NOT a new set of stories...should be called Volume 0.5

Very misleading to be titled Volume II
