Coyote Road by Ellen Datlow
Book DescriptionIn the same spirit as "My Mother She Killed Me, My Father He Ate Me, "twenty-six incredible authorsregale us with stories of trickster myths from around the world. Coyote. Anansi. Brer Rabbit. Trickster characters have long been a staple of folk literature. Twenty-six authors, including Holly Black ("The Spiderwick Chronicles"), Charles de Lint ("Little (Grrl) Lost"), Ellen Klages("The Green Glass Sea"), Kelly Link ("Pretty Monsters"), Patricia A, McKillip ("Ombria in Shadow"), and Jane Yolen, have crafted stories and poems drawing from cultures and traditions all over the world each surprising, engrossing, and thought provoking. Terri Windling provides a comprehensive introduction to the trickster myths of the world, and the entire book is highlighted by the remarkable decorations of Charles Vess. The Coyote Road, like its companions "The Green Man "(winner of the World Fantasy Award) and "The Faery Reel" (a World Fantasy Award Finalist), is essential reading for anyone interested in contemporary fantasy fiction. "This excellent collection is bound to find an audience among experienced readers of the genre but is attractive to less-able readers, as well, for the short, punchy stories and an always-engaging trickster character." "School Library Journal""
