This volume was much more enjoyable than the first one, although I still wish I liked it more. At 330 pages it is a much more manageable length and it seems like most of the stories themselves are of a similar length as well.

A well-balanced, diverse anthology.

Second of the Women-centric anthologies from Silence in the Library and a much faster read at *only* 330 pages of manuscript fiction and 21 stories.

I read this and the first volume at the same time alternating depending on time available and length of up coming story. I received both books during the initial Kickstarter campaigns and read the kindle versions.
I very much enjoyed this book. As with any anthology there were good stories, amazing stories and a few that I wasn't that into. I enjoyed that many were part of a larger world and have added several books to my Goodreads want to read list as a result of the short story in this book.

A pretty scrappy collection of uninspired stories.
