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

Short Story Saturday: Target Practice by Seanan McGuire

Next up on my InCryptid short story binge is Target Practice. Written by Seanan McGuire, this short continues the story of a young Alice Healy. And yes, she is just as stubborn and driven as any other member of her family. Continue reading

Short Story Saturday: The Lay of the Land by Seanan McGuire

Seanan McGuire’s InCryptid series is far from over, and I’m far from getting through all of her short stories! Next up on the list is The Lay of the Land, the first Alice-centric short in this world. Alice is the daughter of Fran and Jonathan Healy and a familiar character to those that have read the main series. Continue reading

Short Story Saturday: The Star of New Mexico by Seanan McGuire

Ouch. If you thought the last short (Broken Paper Hearts) hurts, get ready for The Star of New Mexico. This is the fourteenth short in Seanan McGuire’s InCryptid series, and it tells the story of Jonathan and Frances Healy. Continue reading

Short Story Saturday: Broken Paper Hearts by Seanan McGuire

Broken Paper Hearts is the thirteenth short in Seanan McGuire’s Jon/Fran stories – part of the larger InCryptid series. It should have struck me that this number is an unlucky one long before I picked it up to read. Continue reading

Short Story Saturday: Snakes and Ladders by Seanan McGuire

Next up in my InCryptid read-through is Snakes and Ladders. Written by Seanan McGuire, this is one of the later Fran/Jon stories in the series – number 12, to be exact. The best part of this story, if you ask me, would have to be Alice and Mary. Continue reading

Short Story Saturday: Bury Me In Satin by Seanan McGuire

In Satin is the next short story in my Seanan McGuire binge. Once again, we’re delving back into the world of InCryptid. However, this time around, we’re focused on a very different character. Yes, Fran and the rest are still there…but Mary’s story is finally coming to light. Continue reading

Short Story Saturday: Oh Pretty Bird by Seanan McGuire

My binge through Seanan McGuire’s InCryptid short stories continues here with Oh Pretty Bird. We’re still on Jonathan and Frances Healy, and I adore them so much. It’s been refreshing getting to know some of the older Healy/Price members for obvious reasons. Continue reading

Short Story Saturday: We Both Go Down Together by Seanan McGuire

Next up on the list of Seanan McGuire short stories, we have We Both Go Down Together, part of her InCryptid series. This is number 0.09 in the series, which means I really am making progress in their story! Though I’m not sure how great that is, all things considered. At this point, I don’t want to have to say goodbye to them. (I’m so bad, I know). Continue reading
