There was one story in the batch that I didn't like. But even as I read it, and wasn't enjoying it, I realized there was nothing poorly written/constructed about the story. It just wasn't my thing. I don't care who told the story, or how they did it, <strong>Don't Chew Your Food</strong> wasn't going to work for me. It's a pretty straight-forward horror kind of thing, and that just doesn't do it for me.
That out of the way, let's focus on the pluses.Read more ›
My two favorite stories are: "Lord of Reavers" which was gritty epic fantasy featuring a sword-wielding monk and a band of bandits. I saw what was coming, but it didn't take away my enjoyment of it. "Bad Little Girls Die Horrible Deaths" hooked me right off and took me to a nightmare place I least expected.
"Hounds and Moonlight" was a wonderfully twisted folktale, and "Beyond the Game" was hilarious. Finally, "The Home Made Mask" made me want so much more. As a Twenty Palaces story, it features little of what we know from other Connolly novels, but it doesn't matter. This story stands on its own with its creepy strangeness that made my skin crawl. Spiders and scorpions keep me from wanting to hike in the desert, but now I've got something else to worry about!
That's not to say that this is grimdark fantasy - it's dark fantasy, and that's a good thing. Connolly's not glorying in the bad stuff, even if his characters are, and that makes all the difference to me.
I enjoyed this collection a lot, and I recommend it, as well as his other work, especially the Twenty Palaces series.

This is an excellent collection of short stories. I liked that he included a brief introduction to each one - it was interesting to see where they were from in his career. Read morePublished 16 days ago by Clare
Harry Connolly writes dark fantasies that have the tinniest bits of light. They are very good but not all the stories in this collection are as good so I had to drop it down one... Read morePublished 11 months ago by Blume
A pretty fair introduction into the voice of the author. A lot of homogeneity in the stories' style.Published 14 months ago by Curiosity64
The stories are on the dark side; if you hope to read something along the "Twenty Palaces" books, forget it. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Robert Hölzl
