This book is an anthology of fantasy stories based on the theme of Broken. The presentation of the stories is a little different; although the individual authors are credited at the beginning of their story, the story titles only appear at the end, the idea evidently being that the reader can guess which part of the story relates to the Broken theme. There are 26 stories and the titles run alphabetically, which makes the guessing a bit easier.

I am giving this book five stars, not because every s

This was an interesting collection. I understood the theme for most of the stories, though some I had trouble finding the Broken idea. There was one story that I couldn't finish unfortunately. I could not follow what was going on and could not stay in the story. But the rest of them were interesting to read. I enjoyed the collection and may be looking into the first collection soon.

I enjoyed B is for Broken more than I did A is for Apocalypse (though not as much as C is for Chimera or Sirens. This, despite the rarity of an anthology having a story that I forced myself through. (And it took a couple of letters for the building blocks by the doll to click for me...nice touch.)

NOTE: I have a story in this anthology, so my review may be a LITTLE biased, :).

26 authors tell 26 tales around the theme of brokenness, having randomly received a letter of the alphabet to "write to". A hugely diverse range of inventive tales, some beautiful, some dark.

Picks of the bunch for me: S and U.

Loving this series.

B is for Broken is the second installment in Rhonda Parrish's alphabet collection. While the theme of the stories is broader in scope than the first book (A is for Apocalypse), they all have a haunting and darkly delicious quality. A satisfying read...

Like a magpie, Rhonda Parrish is constantly distracted by shiny things. She’s the editor of many anthologies and author of plenty of books, stories and poems.

She lives with her husband and three cats in Edmonton, Alberta, and she can often be found there playing Dungeons and Dragons, bingeing crime dramas or cheering on the Oilers.

Her website, updated regularly, is at http://www.rhondaparrish.com
