A collection of stories full of really really excellent concepts and magic. In one or two the execution of the concepts doesn't grab me as much as I wish it would—the pacing's a little off or the prose just doesn't do it for me. But overall I had a very good time.

Favourites included:
'Battlefield' which brought the horrors of WW1 to vivid life, in a way I didn't see coming; and
'Slip Stitch' with its gorgeous prose and compelling relationships between mother/daughter and servant/daughter

I really hope that this journal finds an audience because it is a unique blend of two genres- historical fiction and magical realism.

Usually, a collection of stories has a few 'clunkers' but in this case, the editors did a great job in selecting a good mix of topics and periods and all were tightly written with believable characters and situations.

I will be looking forward to future editions.

As a contributor, I'll not give this publication a rating. I will say that the editors have done an amazing job of providing wonder and grandeur in just a handful of stories that bridge the gap between historical fiction and speculative fiction. Romance, intrigue, action, and even horror can all be found in the pages of this slim volume.
