I am smitten by this anthology, I absolutely am. It felt almost too indulgent, reading one gem after another in such quick succession. Patricia McKillip reigns supreme in the ranks of fantasy authors, because no one else has such an elegant and precise grasp on Wonder (this I capitalize for emphasis). From gleaming worlds of scientific magic to ancient kingdoms of a more natural sort of magic, telling stories about old myths and legends and planting the seeds for new ones, Wonders of the Invisible World
absolutely deserves its title.
