Rikki Ducornet is one of my favorite living authors. Her stories relish the exotic, the romantic, sensuality, sexual vibrancy, and enigma. This collection is smaller and less experimental than The Butcher's Tales. The result is that while you rarily feel let down, there are only a few stories that really go for the inexplicable beauty I associate with her work. When she gets it, she gets it with equal grace as her earlier work, but with the added precision due to experience.
Frankly, these stories are generous to the reader and I'm at a loss for reasons to explain why it's not a Best seller.
