In general the stories are interesting and the writing style is pleasant, but to my uneducated taste they feel truncated or with rather trivial endings.

A self-published ebook collection of fantasy/sf short stories, almost all of them previously published. Stories vary from hilarious ("Faust's SASE") to tragic ("Comrade Grandmother") to a sort of tie-in to her Freedom Series ("Spirit Stone"). Every story in this collection is good, although I had my favorites. I like the way a lot of the stories revolve around World War II one way or another, too.

An excellent collection of short stories. While all could be classed as "fantasy", that means something very different from story to story. The diversity of this collection is one of its strengths. If a story doesn't quite work for you (as a couple didn't for me) chances are the next one will. Naomi is a friend, but I would really really like this collection anyway. The title story is particularly good.

intense short stories that are riveting, attention-grabbing. One of the few books I would recommend to people who don't generally like short stories.
