When we think of a wonder, our minds go most often to the
great buildings of the past – the pyramids, the Taj Mahal, Stonehenge – but the
human mind can make almost anything wondrous. We walk with wonders every day,
through the power of curiosity and imagination and our human tendency to make
stories about what we fear, what we desire, what we wish to understand. This
collection offers new glimpses into the wonder we all feel.
Discover standing stones, burial mounds, ruined castles
and sunken cities: the ancient sites that litter our landscapes; the ancient
wonders that possess a mysterious appeal that cannot be denied. Includes stories
by Adrian Tchaikovsky, Aliette de Bodard, Peter Crowther, Anne Nicholls, Adrian
Cole, Pauline E Dungate, Bryn Fortey, William Meikle, John Howard, James
Brogden, Shannon Connor Winward, Misha Herwin, Lynn M Cochrane and Selina Lock,
with an introduction by Kati Sperring.
