The first story, Bastion by Adrian Faulkner, is a thoughtful tale of cultures and independence, personality clash and the fall of a great civilisation. It’s an excellent start to the anthology, and is possibly my second favourite story. My favourite, possibly unsurprisingly, is Ancien Regieme by Adrian Tchaikovsky; an eerie and haunting take on the armies advancing on a city, and the last day of the occupants – and the lengths they take to avoid their fate.

Global Nerfing by Andrew Lawston is a fun take on the world of computer games from the point of view of an NPC – one of those eternal lingerers, there to provide clues and occasionally sword fodder. But what happens to them when the server gets shut down, and the game does dark? In a similar vein, The Last Song of Iranon plays on the trope of the necromancer from the point of view of the monsters; I loved the characters in this story, and the action is excellent.

The Chosen One by David Thomas Moore is an excellent take on the fantasy cliche of the hero, with an amusingly cynical explanation of the ongoing Heroic Battles. After Happily Ever by James Brodgen is in a similar theme, with an old king harking back to his adventuring days, and taking some rather more direct action to rid the kingdom of monsters – with possibly my favourite line of “get a dungeon, you two!”

Cadenza is a beautifully lyrical piece about the clash of technology and nature, the ebb and flow of the world. The Guardian’s Eye by Francis Hartley is an intriguing mix of mythology and technology, with an inventor trying to create a machine to house his dying body and his son trying to help, with some devastating results.

Brilliant collection of short stories from authors who've let their imaginations run wild. I was so gripped by some of them, that I was disappointed to discover a new story on the next page - I especially want to know more about what happens to Zachara, his father and the Confectionarium!
