    These short stories that feature magic in contemporary settings are wonderful gems. In "Houdini's Mirror" an elderly man tries to return to his wife via a portal in a mirror. A troubled teen in New York nearly self-destructs until he is rescued by a Mexican forest god. An electronic gremlin plays havoc with an entire office in "Something Virtual This Way Comes." "Angel in the Cabbages" features a girl who gains self-confidence after befriending a sarcastic fairy in a grocery store.None of these [...]

    I found plenty to like in the collection of short stories that all share the concept of magic arriving to disrupt or save the situation. I enjoyed the twist ending for "The Thing in the Woods" by Turtledove. Flint provided entertainment with " The Flood was Fixed"", while "Raining the Wild Hunt," "Something Virtual This Way Comes," and The Case of the Allergic Leprechaun" all had me going "Hmmm." In all a good crop of stories.

    Besides couple of unexpected good story gems in there, i was overall a bit confused with the choice of the stories in general, besides labeling most of them boring and predictable. Some of them were clearly meant for kids, next ones had a hint of naked ass behavior in them, so it didn't feel very in sync. Now it gets kudos from me, because couple of the stories had potential. Or it is more right to say, some of the authors had potential.

    Most of the short stories in the collection were average, in my opinion, though one or two are good enough to make me want to keep the book.There were enough typos to stick out (including one on the blurb before the title page, which makes such a great impression), but not enough to drive someone crazy.

    I finally, finally finished this book. I ended up liking most of the stories, had to skip one, and the others were okay. Now it's on to either the YA series or the 'Hero' series I started earlier this month - will decide later today.

    This is an anthology. Some of the stories are very good. I liked: 'Something Virtual This Way Comes', 'Opus 1', 'Midsummer Nightmare', 'Angel in the Cabbages'

    Why do I even attempt these short story anthologies any more?
