Kelly Link is an incredibly imaginative writer. While this isn't as strong a collection as Magic for Beginners, there's still some gems in here. I especially enjoyed: "The Specialist's Hat," a genuinely creepy tale involving young twin girls and a haunted house; "Travels with the Snow Queen," a justly lauded tale that smashes several fairy tales together and turns them inside out as well; "Survivor's Ball, or the Donner Party," another creepy tale in which flames and fangs play key roles; and "The Girl Detective," a combination of Nancy Drew and the Twelve Dancing Princesses.
