New sequels help kids get through lazy summer days. Faery world fans will find much to savor in The Faery Reel: Tales from the Twilight Realm, edited by Ellen Datlow and Terry Windling, a companion to their The Green Man: Tales from the Mythic Forest. Among the 19 tales original to this collection, Gregory Frost's ""Tengu Mountain"" and ""Foxwife"" by Hiromi Goto both add flavor with a Japanese setting. Tanith Lee's contribution, ""Elvenbrood,"" one of the darker stories, focuses on the child-stealing tendencies of faeries, while Steve Berman's more conventional ""The Price of Glamour"" scatters glamour (the magical essence of faeries) and dust amid the streets of Victorian London. Other contributors include Neil Gaiman, Holly Black and Gregory Maguire. .
