Discoveries in Fantasy is an anthology of fantasy short stories, edited by American writer Lin Carter. It was first published in paperback by Ballantine Books in March 1972 as the forty-third volume of its Ballantine Adult Fantasy series.[1] It was the seventh such anthology assembled by Carter for the series.


The book collects seven tales by four neglected fantasy authors, Ernest Bramah, Donald Corley, Richard Garnett and Eden Phillpotts, with an overall introduction and notes by Carter.[1] The cover illustrates a scene from one of the tales, Donald Corley's "The Bird with the Golden Beak".
