I don’t often read whole single author collections in one go. Actually I rarely finish them. Minatures was an exception. I had a stressful job interview and had on a whim picked up Minatures by Scalzi as it was cheap and I had enjoyed his work in the past. I read most of the collection on the day of the interview, reading one story after another – keeping me laughing and smiling though the day up to the interview.
From the cover:
“Sports fans live and die by their teams’ successes and failures—though not literally. But these fifteen authors have written spirited—in more ways than one—new tales of killer competitions that would make even the most die-hard players ask to be benched.”
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.
