“Like your fantasy edgy, modern, and sophisticated?” OK, if that’s not a pretentious, self-congratulatory tagline, I don’t know what is. But the stories collected here aren’t bad. This slim volume seems to be aimed at getting people to subscribe to ‘Fantasy’ magazine (Now ‘Lightspeed’).

**** Goosegirl – Margaret Ronald. A very effective re-telling of the old fairytale of a princess and a goose-herder who switch places on the way to meet the princess’ betrothed. Although this is a many-times-told

Not a bad collection of short stories, but nothing to get too excited about.

"Goosegirl" by Margaret Ronald. Not bad, but it left me with more questions than answers. 2/5
"All the Growing Time" by Becca De La Rosa. Intriguing premise. 3/5
"Somewhere Beneath Those Waves is My Home" by Sarah Monette. Bit of a cliched premise, but handled well. 4/5
"Shalott" by Samantha Henderson. Arthur, meet aliens. 3/5
"Bone Mother" by Maura McHugh. Where did Dracula come from? 4/5
"The Greats Come A-Callin'" by Lisa

This collection had many amusing and different story subjects. From fairy-tale twists, Arthurian aliens, persistent imaginary friends, and dead relatives who take up your workspace. It could have actually had more tales included, since it's a relatively short anthology. Also some stories had actions that seemed unclear. But that didn't deflect much from the overall feel of each piece.

I enjoy short stories for the most part and some of these where very good others though needed to be a tad longer and have more to them. I am going to mail this book out as soon as I can to a friend and see what they think if they read it.

Slim collection of stories intended to serve as an introduction to Fantasy Magazine (although the stories are all original to this volume). Pretty good reads.
