Received from a Librarything giveaway! I've never read anything by Irene Radford before, so perhaps I'm not the best audience for some of these stories, which seem to be connected to her novels. Some of the stories are stand-alone ones, though.

Unfortunately, I don't think any of them really captured my attention -- they're easy to read, and some of them definitely made me smile (the dragon bookworm, for example, about which I could make plenty of puns if people in general were more aware that t
Radford is a capable writer. Her stories are imaginative and well crafted. And I genuinely don’t like any of them. I read about five of the stories in this collection, and maybe two others from a previous anthology, and I actively disliked each one. The stories she tells just aren’t ones I want to hear. INYIM. YMMV. DNF. Two stars.

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.

This book is a collection of short stories that were related to the authors other pieces of work. To me it was like watching movie trailers. You can get an idea what the actual story is about, but if you want all details you need to read the whole book. This made me want to read a lot of the author works.
