Edited by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling
Tor Books

Take 19 established and talented writers.  Give them the chance to craft stories full of fantasy, magic, gaslight, alternate history and/or visceral horror.  Mix in a Victorian-era mindset and a nod to lingering folklore, with perhaps a puff of punkish steam, and hand them off to two of perhaps the most accomplished editors of the day, and you have Queen Victoria’s Book of Spells.

This one is not to be missed and a “must read” on your Short Story “to be read” list.
