Write-up from the back of the paperback ~

Let Yourself Be Spellbound - They are beings of legend from a realm just beyond our own, a kingdom where time holds little power, where beauty casts its aura over the natural world, and where magic can transform anything - or anyone.

From high elves holding court in the heart of Faerie... to mischievous wood sprites ready to have their fun with mere mortals... to dark lords working magic against all mankind... to those struggling to survive as the Worlds of Iron spreads its rule - the whole of the elvish lands are explored in stories that may lead the unsuspecting into the fairy hills only to emerge into a world far different from the one they left behind.

So let such spellcasters as Craig Shaw Gardner, Andre Norton, Dennis McKieran, and Mickey Zucker Reichert reveal the perils and promises of elvish magic in the enthralling tales included in - Elf Fantastic
