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.

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.

I liked the low-level commitment, and the fact that if I didn't like one story, it wouldn't take long f...

"The stories in this collection run the gamut from Neal Gaiman's The Man Who Forgot Ray Bradbury to Jim Butcher's hilarious Big Foot on Campus, touching on points in between. I won't even attempt to review every story here so I'll focus on what I consider to be the true gems in this collection. The ...
