it was ok
Recommended for: Female readers
Read from December 10 to 15, 2012

I was hoping for Christmas horror, maybe something like
Rare Exports.
Didn't get it.

This is a pretty uneven collection but generally oriented towards
the female reader, with more of a romantic emphasis than I really
cared for. Every one of these is in some way a love story.

Kim Harrison: Two Ghosts for Sister Rachel. I've read some of these stories before.
OK, but I wouldn't want to make a steady diet of this. Set in a world where
witches and vampires aren't necessarily evil.

Lynsay Sands: Run, Run, Rudolph. Romantic comedy with a thin veneer of
SF or fantasy. Bordered on soft core porn in some passages. Really stupid.
I couldn't finish this.

Marjorie M. Liu: Six. This rocked. The best story of the four by a
wide margin.

Vickie Pettersson: The Harvest. OK. Some interesting ideas but for me the
pieces didn't quite all fit together.
