All of the stories in this anthology are about wizards but wizard can hold many definitions. Due to how broad the idea of a wizard can be and the number of authors, this anthology ended up rather uneven. The best stories stood out by truly playing with the genre but ones like Robert Silverberg's The Sorcerer's Apprentice started by trying to change a trope and ended up in a hole with another one. As a reader of fantasy, I found some authors that I wish to read books of but since there were few new authors featured and mainly the old guard of fantasy, I didn't find as many new reads. A decent anthology but not as good as I was hoping for.
