Charles de Lint never disappoints, is comfort reading at its loveliest and I can never find a bad thing to say about a visit to his fae worlds. Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling have paid true homage to the spirit of the Green Man in this anthology: "In this book, we've asked the writers to journey deep into the Mythic Forest, to bring back tales of those wild lands, and of the creatures who dwell within them.

This was somewhat of a disappointment for a fan of this editing team and their previous anthologies. Admittedly, I did not realize that this one was categorized as YA until after I bought the book, so it was immediately at a disadvantage with me.

The first story was definitely starting out on the wrong foot. Although I enjoyed Delia Sherman's adult fantasy, The Porcelain Dove, this urban fantasy tale never bridged the gap of disbelief for me. I know Central Park quite well, have explored the wilds of it, watched the sun set from the rocks at the south end of the park, roamed the Sheep Meadow, circled the Reservoir, and let me tell you, real nature is kept to a bare minimum and no spirits of nature would ever roam that acreage. I know the difference because I grew up in a place with plenty of wilderness all around me......real wilderness, with real spirits of nature.

The others were pretty good; but I was disappointed when I got to the Patricia McKillip story that I had been looking forward to and realized that I had already read it.

Overall, it was okay.

Marvelous collection of fantasy tales with a forest setting and mainly connected with the Green Man legend. I’ve always been fascinated by the Green Man and the various depictions of him (her or it, as the case may be). Some stories are long, some short, and there are even a few poems. After each piece, there is a small bio of the author and he or she also tells us why they wrote the story or poem. It was interesting to read about the inspiration for each piece.

About The Editors
About The Artist

I've had a curiosity about the legend of The Green Man lately, and in my search for books on his folklore, I came across this collection of shorts edited by trustworthy Ellen Datlow (she puts out great anthologies) so I decided to pick it up.
There are some great tales here, ranging from modern to ancient to full out fantasy. Diversity and uniqueness give this collection the meat it needs to stand up and be noticed.

Each tale lets you feel the light of sun filtering green and warm through soughing boughs, and the dark of shadows creeping along parasitic mosses and vines though the dense dark woods. My favorites were The Green Word and Somewhere In My Mind There Is A Painting Box, both excellent, absorbing tales that I could have kept reading into a novel length tale. There isn't a bad tale among this collection. Artist Charles Vess adds to the atmosphere of the book with some incredible sketches, at least one per story.

Each story comes with a background on the author and a nice paragraph or two by the author him/her self giving their own stories as to how their work and inspiration for this book came along. Its very interesting materiel.

Don't miss out on this great series, and look for other fantasy collections edited by Ellen Datlow and Teri Windling. I'm looking forward to reading more of them myself. I highly recommend this book even if you are not searching the folklore of The Green Man. And who knows, maybe after reading these fictional tales you'll find a spark of interest in the folklore too, of which many good books are around. I recommend Walking With The Green Man by Dr. Bob Curran for your interest. Enjoy!

The short story is a dreadfully difficult art to master. Most collections have but one or two tales truly worth reading---and this collection is no different---there are perhaps two stand-outs. But, and this is the important thing: almost every story in this book captures the essence of the mythic Greenwood in a new vision. A few of the stories are remarkable for their sheer playful writing, and I wonder if this is merely the nature of the genre (fantasy/sf/speculative), or of genre writing (or writers)? Or perhaps a little bit of childhood wonder infects YA-level works? Whatever it is, it is worth reading. Go sit in the hammock, under the trees, and read.

Beautifully written and illustrated tales of the forest. Reading it was like reconnecting, in part, with nature and spirits, from which we have distanced ourselves in the modern world.

Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling have paid true homage to the spirit of the Green Man in this anthology. Not only do the short stories collected in this hefty volume evoke a true sense of mystery in the wild, but artist Charles Vess -- who publishes much of his work via his own, well-respected Green Man Press -- has provided cover art and incidental illustrations to bring the concept alive.
From top to bottom, front to back, Tales from the Mythic Forest is an excellent collection of stories unearthing the heart of the woodlands, the spirit of the trees and the face of nature.

I've read their other compilation of stories, "The Faery Reel", and this one is just as amazing. I couldn't wait for the book to get here; and once I got it, I couldn't put it down. Each story was just as magical and intriguing as the last, but each was just as different in mythology as they were amazing. From Fairy Queens of Central Park, to the Green Man himself, you will be enveloped in a world of wonderful folklore and won't want to leave. I highly reccomend it.
I loved this book as a kid! So happy I found it on here. Came in fast too
