volume 2

Peter S. Beagle's fantastic world of unicorns and magic comes alive in a whole new way in this collection of extraordinary stories. Although all of the stories allude to unicorns in a fashion, nonconventional beliefs about them are expressed. Each individual author brings a new perspective. For example, in We Blazed, the "nicorn" is the representation of a man in his wife's mind, where he realizes what griefs consumed her whether they were true or false. In A Thief in the Night, the narrator, the Antichrist, compares God to the immortal unicorn and one of the Christs to a beach comber. I loved the insight found in many of these stories; coping with life, love, and loss, the characters spread messages of hope or slight despair. All authors eloquently spoke with individual voices collected by the general themes of immortality and mortality.

Not that bad.

Some of the stories in here just mention the unicorn and that's it, but it's still a cool book. I gives you a new definiton of unicorn. When I think of a unicorn I see a horse whith cloven hooves, a lions tail and a horn in the middle of it's forhead, but in this book you get to read about other types of unicorns too. For exsample: A caribou named "Old one Antler", is a caribou that can heal the sick, live forever and make a person immortal. Anyways, in closing I would like to say that this is a good book.

They stole my title, but that's OK.

Right when I had decided to title a novel "Immortal Unicorn", I found this anthology. Oh well! There is a lack of unicorn stories in the world, so I always welcome something new in the genre. Some of these stories are good and some aren't, as is to be expected. You can even tell that some of these stories were made just for the anthology, which means they were forced. Despite this, I think anyone who loves the unicorn will love the book, just because unicorns are so darn rare.

A renewal of faith in the lengend of the unicorn.

I have always been a fan of books on unicorns and this one is no exception. Truth is aside from 'The Last Unicorn", also by Peter S. Beagle this would have to be one of my favorite. It is a renewal in the faith of the unicorn. If you don't believe in them now, you will after reading this coalecance of stories written by exceptional writers including Peter S. Beagle. Each story holds new worlds, new ideas and new outlooks that captures everything that denotes what I have grownup and loved...the immortal unicorn.


Okay, I admit that I'm only half-done reading the stories in this excellent book, but I am completely hooked. A big fan of unicorns as a child, I guess I never grew up, but the market for ADULT unicorn stories isn't that big. What a find this was! The traditional unicorn isn't pictured here, but the stories are somtimes funny, sometimes haunting, and always memorable. Savor it!
