Summary edit

The book collects twelve novelettes and short stories by various fantasy authors, originally published in the years 1975 and 1976 that were deemed by the editor the best from the period represented, together with an introductory survey of the year in fantasy, an essay on the year's best fantasy books, and introductory notes to the individual stories by the editor. The pieces include a "posthumous collaboration" (the story by Smith and Carter).

An Italian edition published in 1992 also included the novel The Witch's Daughter by R. A. Salvatore.
