Shiny Thing gathers together nineteen of Patricia Russo's short stories, including four original, unpublished tales of magic and danger that will chill you to the bone. Russo's characters are people you know, yet they do things you would never expect, and within each story there is one shining thing that somehow changes them all. You know the old saying: all that glitters is not gold. Well sometimes, all that is gold does not glitter. In Shiny Thing, your life may depend on being able to tell the difference.
