Not your average every day fairy tales. Be ready for a little darkness. That said, I thoroughly enjoyed this new collection of short stories by Harry Connolly (the author of the fantastic series Twenty Palaces, and the upcoming series The Great Way). This may sound like a paid review, but it's not: I'm just that big of a fan of his. If you like Harry Dresden, if you like the Iron Druid, you owe it to yourself to check out this author.

By and large, I am not a fan of short stories. The length is typically frustrating for me -- even when they don't remind me of the various anthologies I had to use in Lit classes throughout my High School and College years. Still, I try every now and then to read some. Finding a good short story is as rewarding -- if not moreso -- than finding a good novel. This is a collection of ten short stories and one novelette -- six of the stories are reprints, the others have been published for the first time in these pages. The novelette belongs to Connolly's criminally under-appreciated <strong>Twenty Palaces</strong> series, and would be worth the purchase price for fans of that series. If you've never read that, but are interested in in trying out a variety of new fantasy worlds (including one that has some books to go with it), this is a great investment.

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.

A collection of truly dark fantasy stories. True to the style of Harry Connolly with chills, suspense, and horrific twists.

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!

A great sampler of Harry Connolly's work. Each of the stories stands on its own, and each left me wanting more from the world it teased. The title story is a fine example of Connolly's style; it's dark, does more showing than telling, and gives you hints at a much larger world that lies behind the story. It's also touched with wry humor, and has a protagonist that's engaging without being likable at all. Connolly writes stories about people who are not good people, doing bad things to one another, and makes the whole process far more enjoyable to read than it sounds like it would be.

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.

I got this by backing Harry Connolly's kickstarter for his next series. Read through each and every short story and they are all great. There is 1 official as well as 1 kinda-sorta 20 palaces story in the collection, both of which are good, but I was more impressed with the fact that each story was engrossing. Connolly can write well, no matter the subject matter. Everything from a hack-and-slash to urban fantasy, all of them are fun and interesting. Definitely worth the purchase!
