Still reading this, but for this one story, Jesus at the Bat, I love you Esther Friesner...
Finished. I didn't know how wide Friesner's range was till now. Funny, poignant, heartbreaking stories, well worth reading. Go find this book.

I enjoyed this collection of short stories by Esther Friesner, mostly reprinted from elsewhere. My favorites were her humorous ones. Some of them were a bit obtuse for me, but I really liked the title story and How to Make Unicorn Pie.

I read about half the stories in the book. Some of them were well written and some of them were extremely well written. They all made me terribly sad, which is the reason why I returned it before finishing it.

Esther Freisner is one of my favorite sci-fi/speculation/dystopia/comedic fantasy writers. I gobble up anything I can get by her. So maybe my review is a bit biased. But DAMN the woman can write!
