Fans of Alice Hoffman probably rejoiced when her latest work was announced, a short story revolving around a bookstore and two sisters, The Bookstore Sisters. I finally finished reading it this week and am so glad I did. Continue reading

Short Story Saturday: Skeleton Song by Seanan McGuire

Is everyone ready to squeal with me? Here we go: eeeee! As a huge fan of the Wayward Children series, the release of this short story absolutely made my day (month). Skeleton Song is the latest short story in the Wayward Children world. It follows Christopher, showcasing what the world beyond his door looks like. Continue reading

Short Story Saturday: File and Forget by Seanan McGuire

Ha! It’s been a hot minute since I read any of Seanan Mcguire’s shorts that weren’t directly connected to one of her larger worlds (October Daye, InCryptid, etc.). So File and Forget was a pretty refreshing read, all things considered. As with many of the short stories I get by Seanan McGuire, File and Forget is available through her Patreon. You can sign up and get access to the entire backlog (which is pretty fantastic, if I may say so) alongside a new short every month. Continue reading

Short Story Saturday: Of Strange Oaths by Seanan McGuire

Oh, Tybalt, don’t ever change. Of Strange Oaths is one of the many (MANY) short stories from Seanan McGuire’s October Daye series. Like many of the tales focused on Tybalt (the best character of the series), this one is set far before Toby was even born. Continue reading

Review: Reclaim the Stars Anthology

Who can resist an anthology full of magical realism and stars? I certainly can’t. Reclaim the Stars consists of seventeen short stories, all of which are centered around one main subject: space and the stars beyond. That is not the only element tying these stories together, as they all feature the Latin American diaspora. In other words – this is an absolute must-read! Continue reading

Review: Serendipity by Marissa Meyer and Various Authors

Serendipity is the latest anthology that caught my attention. I’ll confess that it was originally the Jane Austen fan in me that dragged my eyes to this cover. However, the lead and contributing authors were more than enough to keep me invested. Continue reading

Review: The River of Silver: Tales from the Daevabad Trilogy by S.A. Chakraborty

When S.A. Chakraborty concluded The Daevabad Trilogy, I thought that was it – that it was all over. Then she hinted at something else she was working on from this world, and my hopes lifted right back up into the stratosphere. And here it is – The River of Silver, an anthology of short stories set around the main series of events. Continue reading

Review: The Way Spring Arrives and Other Stories Anthology

I sincerely believe that The Way Spring Arrives and Other Stories Anthology is the biggest work of love and passion I’ve seen in quite some time. This anthology collects nineteen short stories exploring Chinese science fiction and fantasy. Continue reading

Short Story Saturday: Blocked by Seanan McGuire

The short stories within Seanan McGuire’s InCryptid series are plentiful, for which I am grateful. Blocked is my most recent read and the first short story to give Antimony Price the lead. This is set following the second novel in the series – so before Antimony even got her own novel. Continue reading

Short Story Saturday: What was I meant to do? By Seanan McGuire

What was I meant to do? Is another short story written by Seanan McGuire, and it fits in her InCryptid series. It’s set between the events of the first and second novels (Discount Armageddon and Midnight Blue-Light Special), but it doesn’t follow any of the main characters that we’re used to. Continue reading
