Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[A] collection of richly imagined short fiction…All but one story in this masterfully done archive of previously published stories are fantasy, horror, or science fiction and are populated by a host of outré beings, from vampires and angels to demons. Nix knows them well, and the result is a feast for speculative fiction fans of all ages.” Booklist (starred review)
“The title novella, set in Nix’s Old Kingdom, is the gem of this collection of nineteen stories…Invariably well written and featuring engaging characters throughout, these stories are all a pleasure to read…Nix’s fans will treasure this collection.” Publishers Weekly
“A collection of short speculative fiction showcases a hugely popular author…A tasty buffet for Nix fans and a comprehensive sampler for new readers.” Kirkus Reviews
“To accommodate such a diverse group of stories, this audiobook has ten narrators, with each narrator delivering a complete story. The arrangement allows each narrator to set the tone of his or her story. Every narration features a unique voice and is performed with accents that fit the particular work. For example, the witches, vampires, and cadets of The Worshipful Company of the Greenwash & Field Market Bridge are all given voices that fit their characters. Each narrator is a good fit for the stories he or she delivers, and the totality of the narration results in a captivating collection.” AudioFile
