Robin McKinley - Love her work. I just re-read Spindle's End and Rose Daughter. =) Part of what dragged me back into the fairy tales thing. <_<; I haven't tried Damar but now I'm curious.
As far as differences between Discworld and others - you're right, there really isn't. (I just happen to like some of the other characters that don't show up in the Tiffany Aching books.)
Ellen Datlow sounds familiar...yep, she worked on The Green Man and The Faery Reel.
Both good collections of fairy stories, though young-adult oriented. They're still good reads though. I'm trying to find her other anthologies as it seems she has very good taste.
Thanks for the links to the short-story links.
I'll read those when I actually have time.
I've read the Goodkind series of books a bit over halfway through. Then neither the library nor the local bookstores had them and I lost interest...those books are long.
I'm no stranger to long books, but I just can't read ten in a row. x_X I might pick them up again later, again - when I have time.
Short story anthologies are my new thing. Firebirds
is it right now.
