    1 thought on “Dark Alchemy: Magical Tales From Masters Of Modern Fantasy”

    1. While reading this book, I just came across this article: factualfacts/funny-facts/aIt's pretty unusual that an anthology ever gets more than 3 stars from me - after all, tastes differ, and in any random selection, there's bound to be a few stories I think are great, and a few that don't do much for me. However, this anthology was, really, really good. I'd say 4.5 stars.Contents: Neil Gaiman - “The Witch’s Headstone”. (2008 Locus Award winner for best Novelette.) The story later turned out [...]

    2. Fantasy stories ignite the imagination in ways that realistic fiction can not. Characters are larger than life. Conflicts mean life and death – often for an entire race or culture.In this collection, editors Dann and Dozois, have collected unpublished short stories from a variety of well-known fantasy authors. Each story is about a wizard, but rarely do they appear in the pointed hat and starry cape (like the one on the cover of the book): Orson Scott Card introduces us to the mages of the ele [...]

    3. I only read about half of this book, so my rating is only based on that much of it, plus my impression of the book as a whole. This seemed like a great collection of short stories by some excellent authors, some of whom I have read, others new to me. Those stories I read were good; I think I especially liked the one by Garth Nix. The problem is that I really don't like short stories. They are too short! I like to really sink my teeth into a book and short stories are just over far too soon for m [...]

    4. Some of the stories I really loved, some I liked and some I found pointless. Some of them had a deeper meaning that touched me deeply and some of them were adventurous and just fun to read. Overall, I consider this book a very nice collection of short stories. It reminded me of how exciting fantasy books are, which I hadn't read for years. "The witch's headstone", "The Ruby Incomparable", "Winter's wife" and "Zinder" :Favorites"The stranger's hands", "The Manticore Spell", "Billy and the wizard" [...]

    5. This book was crazily difficult to find in the system. Too many books named Dark Alchemy, and apparently not linked up well to any of the authors. But we found it by ISBN so it does exist, and a thousand other people found it too.I liked a few of these stories, some of them I'd read before as they're excerpts from longer works. But the new author I liked was Kage Baker. I'm not sure I'd choose to read a long story in that style but as a short story about wizards it was pretty adorable.Mostly I [...]

    6. I never really loved short story format, but I've been warming up to it since I've been trying to plow through books that have been sitting on my shelf for FOREVER. This compilation had some GREAT entries, all centering around the idea of wizards. Ones I loved the most were by Neil Gaiman, Orson Scott Card, Garth Nix and Kage Baker (who I have only read a few things by, must remedy!) A few were a little simplistic and young-adultish in tone, but still enjoyable. It's a fine line with fantasy/fol [...]

    7. This anthology contains never-before-published stories by masters of fantasy: Neil Gaiman, Eoin Colfer, Garth Nix, and a magical lineup of writers.Throughout the ages, the wizard has claimed a spot in human culture — from the shadowy spiritual leaders of early man to precocious characters in blockbuster films. Today's wizards are more subtle in their powers, more discerning in their ways, and-in the hands of modern fantasists — more likely than ever to capture readers' imaginations.The Witch [...]

    8. This is one of those books that I bought ages and ages ago that just lurked on my TBR pile, making me feel awfully guilty for years. I'd thought, at the time of purchase, that this collection was for adults, and indeed there was no indication on the cover that this is a YA read, but there you have it. This is YA fantasy. Not that I'm complaining, because the stories were of a consistently high quality.I admit there is only one reason that I purchased the anthology, and that was because of Neil G [...]

    9. The first story in the collection, which also happened to be the first story I read, is “The Witch’s Headstone” by Neil Gaiman, the, as far as I’m concerned, Lord and Master of All Things Fantastical And Mysterious.“The Witch’s Headstone” later became a chapter in Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book, which I’ve also read and reviewed before. However, I just had to read it again, both because I love Gaiman and because, to be honest, I was beginning to miss that Bod Owens.The story begin [...]

    10. It's a great example of how different we all are and how we perceive the world regarding some very common topics. Well, a number of fantasy writers were given the same task and same keyword, yet so amazingly different stories formed in their heads and came out as a compilation. Fantasy and ideas only enriches our world. Great many thanks and a deep bow before you, our modern Masters!

    11. This was a strong collection of stories, though one definitely aimed at a young adult audience. The introductions to the collection (and to each of the authors) could have used some help, as they might as well have simply been a listed bibliography, but the authors selected ranged pretty widely across the SF and Fantasy map and very few of the selections were true clunkers.For me, the highlights were two stories by authors I had never read before: "The Ruby Incomparable," by Kage Baker, was a fu [...]

    12. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves fantasy. If you have read all of the authors whose stories appear here, then not only are you well read, but you will enjoy the stories in this book. If you haven't read some of these authors, then like me, you'll find a few new names to explore.I love Neil Gaiman's work, and "The Witch's Headstone," part of his upcoming new book The Graveyard Book, is no exception. It was fun, with that undercurrent of whimsical exploration.Many of the other stori [...]

    13. Nineteen authors come together to form a collection of stories filled with wizards, and magical worlds in both ancient and modern times. The anthology kicks off with Neil Gaiman's "The Witch's Headstone" staring Bod, a boy being raised in a cemetery and ends with "Stonefather" by Orson Scott Card about a boy born in poverty with nothing but his abilities to survive in a hostile world. The main theme is, of course, wizards and how in every age and culture there seems to be different (or maybe not [...]

    14. Neil Gaiman's "The Witch's Headstone" is a weird little tale of a boy living in a graveyard, surrounded by ghosts--they are also his teachers and only friends. Garth Nix's "Holly and Iron" is a novel take on the Norman conquest and the Robin Hood legend. "The Ruby Incomparable" is another wonderful tale by Kage Baker, and shares many characters with The Anvil of the World. Jane Yolen's "slipping Sideways Through Eternity" actually plagirizes *herself*, which takes doing (it's a terrible, pat, sh [...]

    15. This is mostly a pretty bad anthology. There are a lot of good authors, a lot of them very good at novel-length, and I liked the idea (there's something about the traditional wizard and variations on it that resonates with me when I think about it abstractly, I don't know--like it's almost never something I enjoy in real stories but in principle I feel like I like the idea), but hardly any of the stories were any good. My favorite in the collection--the Manticore Spell by Jeffrey Ford, which is [...]

    16. Meski telah dikemas dalam format besar (15,5 x 24 cm), buku ini masih lebih tebal dari rata-rata ukuran novel atau kumpulan cerita. Dengan mengusung nama-nama besar sepert Neil Gaiman, Garth Nix dan Eoin Colfer dan mengedepankan 18 tema magis, low fantasy dan high fantasy, sihir dan peri. Sebuah fiesta kisah dongeng yang cukup mengesankan.Yang menjadi favoritku, tentu saja Batu Nisan Sang Penyihir dari Gaiman. Kisah Nobody Owens ini menjadi cikal bakal novel The Graveyard Story. Selain itu masih [...]

    17. These two gentlemen have comiled a colletion of short stories about wizards and and other people who do magic. They have collected at the time it was writen nver before published writing samples fro the likes o Neil Gaiman, Garth Nix, Jane Yolen ,Eoin Colfer and others. The stories are very enterntaining and enjoyable to read.Stories have such plots as a boy who is raised in a graveyard does a favor for a witch. While out of the graveyard he gets in trouble and the dead witch helps him out. In H [...]

    18. Aku benar-benar kagum dengan imajinasi para penulis di dalam buku ini. Cerita tentang penyihir yang sudah sangat sering kita baca, dengar, atau tonton, bisa mereka ceritakan kembali dengan ide yang tak terpikirkan sebelumnya, unik dan menggugah rasa ingin tahu.Cerita-cerita favoritku:Pnglihatan Berwarna - Mary RosenblumPermata Tak Terbandingkan - Kage BarkerKisah Unggas - Eoin ColferZinder - Tanith LeeStonefather juga bagus, sayangnya aku capek membaca bagaimana orang-orang selalu mengatakan kal [...]

    19. I put this off for a while, as anthologies can be hit-or-miss for me but I ended up liking half of the stories, some of them a lot - which is reasonably rare. The thing I didn't like about it is that it's one of those anthologies that lists the authors achievements before the story. To me it feels like trying to prove the author's credentials somehow, I prefer to have the story stand by itself and have the author biographies afterwards, or all collected together at the end.

    20. Berisi 18 kisah fantasi pendek yang ditulis oleh penulis kondang. Tapi ada yang ceritanya lumayan panjang sebenernya sampai bisa dijadiin novel sendiri setebal teenlit, hahaa. Beberapa kisahnya fantantis, banyak yang bikin adem hati, ada yang lucu, juga aneh, terlalu dewasa, bahkan seperti asal-asalan. Ada juga yang ngegantung! Kenapa ga dijadiin satu novel aja sekalian, daripada sekedar cerpen?

    21. I absolutely loved this collection. From the first story to the last one, Orson Scott Card's Stonefather, I was entranced.

    22. Wizards, witches, warlocks, enchanters, have all captivated humanity since the beginning of time, whether they be the mysterious shamans from the time of early man or the fascinating and powerful characters in blockbuster films. In these new stories by some very well-known and prolific authors in the fantasy genre, every point on the spectrum of mages is explored, from Harry Potter-esque stories about children discovering their hidden talents to epic battles between warring wizards. I enjoyed al [...]

    23. Cuando Luis Saavedra me dio la oportunidad de pedir unos libros por a su nombre, elegí éste (de los tres que pedí) por dos únicas razones: tenía el cuento de Neil Gaiman que dio origen a la novela El Libro del Cementerio, libro que me encantó y me permitió entender que se puede trabajar el terror y la oscuridad sin caer en lo macabro; y porque uno de los antologadores es Gardner Dozois, de quien leí otra antología hace algún tiempo llamada “La Nueva Space Opera” que removió los c [...]

    24. Dark Alchemy is a collection of short stories suited to those who love fantasy, wizard/mage stories in particular. Some stories are traditional and some are modern. I think that if you come to this book having a fondness for one style, you’ll come away from it with a taste for the other too.I usually like my fantasy to be dark or comic, or both (think Discworld or Dunsany). But I found myself really enjoying some of the higher fantasy stories and even some of the urban tales, which I often str [...]

    25. Short story collections are among the best of books, each a chest full of who knows what treasures. Mostly these are gathered from all over the place, heaps of literary spoils of various provenance. It’s not so often that you get one like this, where each story has been specifically crafted for the collection, like the contents of a cabinet of curiosities…The 18 authors in the book were asked to write a story about wizards. Perhaps it is the subject matter, but the result is a set of curious [...]

    26. IntroIt's only fair that with all the effort the publisher and editor took to create this anthology, I should give it some extra attention. The line up of writers are A-listers and this was a red-carpet affair of a book. I value the fact I could grab it at my local library. The exposure to writers I am not familiar with was really great. I can go out support them as well as the authors who I cherish and have devoted my time to for years.There's a connecting theme throughout the anthology, or con [...]

    27. I originally bought this book because I thought the cover was really eye-catching and because I saw that one of the stories included was written by Neil Gaiman. I'm a relatively new fan to his work and so didn't want to pass up the chance to read another of his stories. I am glad that I bought it, as I really enjoyed it. Every story focussed on magic or magicians in some way, which is a theme I always enjoy a lot. Like with all anthologies, some stories worked for me whilst other didn't, althoug [...]

    28. Having taken a three year break between reading the first half and second half of this anthology, I feel obligated to write a review. Wizards caught my eye initially because of its title and cover art, but when I noticed Neil Gaiman, Garth Nix, Eoin Colfer and Orson Scott Card in the mix, I knew had to read it. I've decided to write about each of the stories within out of respect to each story and its author, also to revisit the ones I read three years ago.The Witch's Headstone -Neil GaimanAltho [...]
