This collection of nine short stories (some not so short. perhaps they even qualify as novellas) is highly imaginative. From a man who finds diamonds in shoulder blades to a little girl who becomes a queen but loses her humanity to another little girl who talks to the moon to the murder of the direction East, these stories will take you places that you have never imagined.

For me, it was hard to get into this collection. The first three stories were fairly long and a little bizarre for my tastes.

Quite possibly one of the five best single-author collections I've ever read, up there with the likes of Ray Bradbury, Harlan Ellison, and Michael Chabon's A Model World.

It's not often I end up downloading a Kindle book for free and absolutely loving it. This collection of short stories is brilliant, beautifully written, and a fine addition to any book-lover's library. Grist has a very classical voice that I thoroughly enjoyed. There wasn't a single story I didn't like. I can't wait to read his other works.

I read the author's short story The Orphan Queen a few years back on the Ideomancer. I loved that story and look forward to reading more of his work.
