The Healy/Price family stories continue on this week’s addition to Short Story Saturday. Written by Seanan McGuire, Stingers and Strangers is number 0.04 in the InCryptid series, which is a series full of monsters, critters, and more.

Johnny and Fran are the perfect team. He was raised by two of the most dangerous hunters around, while Fran is phased by nothing. Together, they’re on a quest to follow some Apraxis wasps, which are even more deadly than one might imagine.

I should mention that before reading the short stories in this series, I made a point of getting caught up with the main series first. Thus, I had a bad feeling about what was going to happen from the onset.

That helped to build an additional layer of tension and made this short story all the more thrilling because of it. I’m looking forward to seeing whatever mess Johnny and Fran get into next, as they seem quite talented at it. At least Fran is having fun!
