In subject matter, the stories range from hard SF space travel, through near future Zero Hours social comment, to an alternate retelling of Theseus and the Minotaur and a world where flowers whisper poems.Praise for Best British Fantasy"All in all this is a great little collection of short stories by some of the best fantasy writers around, some you will have heard of and some that may be new to you but all of whom have earned their place in this anthology by being good writers. Whether or not it's the 'best' and whether or not every writer is actually 'British' is open to debate, but one thing's for sure, it will make a great addition to anyone's fantasy library." -Sci-Fi London
