Book Description

[From the introduction by the editor:] One of the great pleasures of editing a short-story magazine is that you get to meet a lot of very talented writers before they become household names. Some you watch develop slowly, while others more or less erupt in a dazzling display of talent, and produce great short stories right from the start.

Judith Field is that second kind of writer. From the very first story she sent me, I could see that someday we'd all be reading her novels, or watching the movies and TV shows based on her stories, and a few of us would be lucky enough to be able to say, "Oh yeah, Judith Field. I was reading her *way* before everyone else was."

So here is your great opportunity, to get to know The Remarkable Ms Field before everyone else is talking about her. In the sixteen stories in this collection you'll see the full range of her story-telling talents on display: sometimes funny, sometimes poignant; sometimes whimsical and fantastic; sometimes romantic, and sometimes disturbing, and sometimes both in the same story!

But always, a good story, well-told.

More About the Author

Judith Field was born in Liverpool and lives in London. She is the daughter of writers, and learned how to agonise over fiction submissions at her mother's (and father's) knee.

She has two daughters, a son, a granddaughter and a grandson (who inspired her first published story when he broke her laptop keyboard. Unlike in the story, a magical creature didn't come out of the laptop and fix her life). Her fiction, mainly speculative, has appeared in a variety of publications, mainly in the USA. She speaks five languages and can say, "Please publish this story" in all of them. She is also a pharmacist, freelance journalist, editor, medical writer, and indexer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and totally worth your time! 18 Aug. 2014

These stories present a refreshing fusion of styles. Life, wonder, and magic, sums it up -- often the fantastic and magical meets the reality of everyday life in a way that I'd imagine fans of Pratchett and Gaiman might appreciate. There are also hints of magic realism and a depth of characterisation that makes the writing truly engaging and a pleasure to read. The fact that some characters make repeated appearances across the stories is very welcome because they are so well drawn that they stay with you. This collection is by turns funny, absurd, and poignant, and never less than thoroughly entertaining. Highly recommended.

Judith Field celebrates the extraordinary. It lives in every line of her stories alongside Magic. friendly ghosts and paranormal entities. Each tale also contains Human Beings who are warm, full of sentience and often conflicting emotions. Allow yourself to be whisked away to ordinary suburbs where incredible things happen all the time.

A collection of tales of the fantastic that manage to be sweet, poignant and laugh out loud funny all at the same time.
