I just read The Enchantment Emporium by Tanya Huff and am in the process of reading the second book. I greatly enjoy her style and her take on fays. When I saw that she had just published a short story collection with just fay stories I thought, hey that is made for me. And I think the name is kinda clever so bonus points for that.

This is a read-along post with my thoughts on each of the stories, I will also post the individual story reviews as I read them and collect them in this post.

The stories

Bag Lady & Cigarette 4, NYC, 1977 A Choice of Endings – originally published in Maiden, Matron, Crone, DAW Books Inc., 2005

This story is about Mrs. Ruth, the Crone, who is a bag lady – yes it makes sense. She is trying to get a little more out of her time on Earth (this time around), because when it is her time to hold the Power again, it will be too late. That is all I will say about the plot, anything more would be spoilers. I really enjoyed the little story. The introduction makes it more powerful and it takes a painful subject and lets us imagine the power to stop it. Read my full review
