Review by Tammy

Till Human Voices Wake Us from Annie Bellet is a collection of 20 short stories. There is no better way to describe this than eclectic. No matter what your reading genre preference there will be something that will grab your attention and pull you deeper into the book. Many will take you on a journey that will find you wondering "Why isn't this longer?" But that's the power of the short story.

None of these are the same. They're all unique. I'm not always a reader of anthologies wi
I received an Audible recording of this book in exchange for a review from Thank-you very much! I've enjoyed this anthology thoroughly!

Short stories are difficult to write well. Characters must be developed, setting established, action & resolution all must be tidy.

I love short stories. This collection was well done. In some the tale is more plot driven and in others it is more character driven. Science fiction and fantasy are well covered here. There is action, lots of imagination and plotting that won't let you down. I will be looking for more from this author. I received this free through Library Thing giveaways for an honest review.

Some of these stories don't fall under my usual fare, but i have to say that I enjoyed them greatly. Nice change of pace.
This collection of 20 sci-fi/fantasy stories gives you a good short read when you want an escape from the mundane. They are all different, rather than a series and I enjoyed the variety and the imaginative characters.
