I already knew that Narrelle M. Harris is an excellent storyteller, and I very much enjoyed reading her earlier anthology, Showtime. This collection is even better, I think. It's a delightful mix of stories and styles, and yet they're all inimically *hers*.

Some of the stories build on or offer prequels to Narrelle's novels, but can be read as stand-alones. I can promise you that, as I am familiar with about half of the other content referenced here! Narrelle won't leave you hanging there withou

It's always lovely to read a collection of short stories by a really good writer. It's a chance to appreciate the writer's versatility as well as confirm their main interests, techniques and writing style. This collection from Narrelle M Harris doesn't disappoint!

This is a strange array of short stories. They are all different, they all have very different characters, some of them you might know (Holmes and Watson!), others, you might have been waiting to know them (Kitty and Cadaver origin story), or be complete strangers, but oh, they are all so compelling!

And their stories are interesting, some painful, some hopeful, some funny; there are apocalypses, and vampires, humans and werewolves. There are even a couple of poems. And oh, god, I love them, all

An odd collection of a good way. Some characters I knew and others were a discovery. We venture in the paranormal world with a host of 'people' out of the norm. Vampires are always my fave. I highly recommend this book of short stories.

I grew up in a home bursting with books. My father was in the Royal Australian Air Force – we moved roughly every three years – and my parents were passionate advocates of reading and the importance of access to a library of ideas, no matter where we lived.

Between a childhood spent on the move yet steeped in literature, and a naturally dramatic personality, it’s no surprise I became a storyteller.
