Delia Sherman & Theodora Goss, Editors  - published April 2007

A version of the Introduction is online and the Afterword, by the editors Delia Sherman and Theodora Goss — a great conversation on expectations, editing, definitions (and the lack or use of them) — is posted (in slightly edited form) here.
