It's been a while since I've read a collection of short stories. I enjoyed this volume immensely. Most shorts were quick reads, and I was able to taste a few genres I don't normally read. This is good because I've been trying to expand my reading. I love that the writers come from all over, with varied backgrounds and geographic locations. I look forward to reading what they come up with next~ Highly recommend for a cozy autumn -- or winter -- or whenever!
