I love the author and other books by her, however, this was not one of them. The book is a collection of short stories, that I will admit are imaginative and atypical, but I found myself more confused and unable to be immersed into the worlds she created. There were a few stories that I liked, but mostly did not like the content.
This author is amazing and this collection of her short stories do a few great things. First, you get to see her proofs of concept, seedlings that would later become her amazing books. You trace her growth as a writer and she tried out new ideas and can almost feel the growing confidence she had as she found her voice and wrote stories informed by her interests and background. You also get wonderful and interesting one-offs from a great writer in the vein of Bradbury or King, rather than the epics she typically writes. Lastly you get amazing visions of worlds from a profound imagination, worlds you get to step
into for a half-hour and leave you both satisfied and wanting more.
Great service, fast shipping, great selection <3
