Anthology of fantasy throughout the ages

This anthology explores fantasy stories set in a variety of time periods. The time periods are divided into categories such as the Age of Sail and the Age of Pioneers, with two to four stories per category. I bought the anthology because I am a fan of Sandra Tayler (who wrote the short story Immigrant in this anthology). I've previously enjoyed her short stories (some of which are available for free here: I was impressed with the quality of all of the stories in the volume. I would like to see additional anthologies with this theme!

fascinating "Age" comparability

This anthology collection is based on the premise that there are other eras besides the medieval and the modern periods in which fantasy can thrive. The collection is broken into six categories as follows: the Age of Antiquity with four entries; the Age of Sails contains four tales; the Colonial Age includes three stories: the Age of Pioneers provides three submissions, the Pre-Modern Age includes three stories; and the Age Ahead contains two. All nineteen contributions are new and well written with this reviewer's favorite period being the Pre-Modern Age with the awe of new technologies and major scientific advancements. Within each age the tales radically differ and even more so between the sections so that a reader can choose to go in placement order (chronological at the section level) or as I did rotate between sections. Fresh, AGES OF WONDER is an intriguing fantasy collection that lends itself to a fascinating "Age" comparability as the reader can determine which era is best suited for "myths, magic, and monsters".
