"Refractions from the Neglected Side" is the best SciFi offering here: reminiscent of early Greg Egan, this story wonders what would the world look like if we were truly able to pay attention.
But the sufficient reason to buy this collection is "Tomorrow We dance". At the surface a retelling of "The Pied Piper" tale with some "The Emperor's New Clothes" and "Lord of the Flies" thrown in, this powerful novelette is much more than that: it convincingly tells how we fall for false prophets, how we abandon our humanity for empty promises, and why nobody is free of danger of becoming a beast to others, even the closest ones, in the name of great common good at the other side of the rainbow.
The author tells us in her comments she is working on the novel from which this little masterpiece was taken. Not a great fan of fantasy myself, I eagerly await it nevertheless. It might easily make hardships of life on the streets worthwhile (read those comments to see what I am talking about (o: )
"A Thousand Blossoms With The Day" is one of the best short stories I've ever read, I will recommend it to any one that will listen to me. To the ones that don't listen to me, I shall even reverse recommend it!
While my favorite stories are very short, Ghosts on Red Strings and The Best of All Possible Worlds, I would love to see some of the worlds she creates expanded into full length novels.
This anthology is great for filling the little reading gaps you might have during your day. Buy it! Read it! Review it!
(When you review a book, it really helps out the author reach more readers. So, especially if you like a book, be sure to come back and review it!)
The author, also shares her comments about each title which creates the sense that in reading the book, you are making a friend; a very imaginative, thought provoking, and boundless friend.
One last comment of no literary connection....put this book out somewhere for others to see and the cover alone will spark conversation!
