Fantasy the Best of the Year 2001 - Robert Silverberg and Karen Haber

The first of the iBooks Year's Best Fantasy series, and a good book, too, making it over the 3.50 mark at 3.55, and with no dodgy stories.

Quite a pleasing volume, even if no standout quality stories.

"Aiala’s glance lingered more than it pierced. “I do not really wish to destroy you, Cappen Varra,” she told him slowly. “You have a rather charming way about you. But—should you disappoint me—you will understand that one does have one’s position to maintain.”"
