Read in August, 2008

Get past the first story (I found the language hard going) by Avram Davidson to get into a good Tom Holt short. A demon of a third story with a charming ending by Craig Shaw Gardner then follows.
Next a dark humour-less story about the pitfalls of selling home computers to fairies by Gardner Dozois,Jack Dann and Michael Swanwick. At last a laugh-out-loud story of pre-nuptuals between "The Grim Lord" and "Princess Minuriel" - "Death Swatch" by Esther Friesner is a breath of "fresh" air.
Overall a good book to put down and pick up whenever the mood takes you especially if like me you can take months to finish a single novel.
