This book was sort of adorable. The main character is Mary Jekyll, daughter of Dr. Jekyll. Over the course of the book she goes broke, learns her father's secrets, teams up with Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, saves the life of Justine Frankenstein and solves the Ripper murders. The Strange Case o...

This book throws a mixture of literary classics at you with quite the unusual twist. We go on a murder mystery adventure with Sherlock Holmes, Watson (which sold me on this book right from the start), and Dr. Jekyll's daughter Mary, who stumbles upon Diana the daughter of Hyde, who may or may not be...

I had a hard time putting this down. Not exactly action packed, but compelling in a way that made for a few late nights where I needed to see what would happen next. The second book I've read this year structured so that the "author" is one of the protagonists. Though in this case, one not met unt...

3.75 starsShort, short story - 30 pages. This is a twist on a fairy tale set in Europe before WWII, with a young servant with her head in the clouds, and a mysterious woman hellbent on revenge. Engaging read despite the short length.

How cool is that? Answer: very cool. The story...

Lessons with Miss Grey - The last in the book, and a really good one. We have two sets of reoccurring characters, Miss Grey who appeared in two other stories in this collection and Rosa and Emma who appeared in The Wings of Meister Wilhelm. I really liked this one a lot, and it was a good story to e...

Prime Books does it again with a neat anthology of fairy tale retellings. My favorite is Theodora Goss' Blanchefleur.

Well, it took me almost nine years to get there, but now I am all up to speed on which fantasy was hot in 2006!I don't often read short story collections, so this was a nice change of pace for me. I liked the low-level commitment, and the fact that if I didn't like one story, it wouldn't take long f...
