Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 9 September 2009
Not one for Collections of short stories myself, but I simply adored this book!

This is a Collection of individual Fantasy stories that were written way ahead of their time, and therefore must mark the true beginning of Sci-Fi and the Fantasy Fiction genres. Very readable and easy to follow with some great atmosphere and thought-provoking scenarios for its heroine.

Written by a woman, one would perhaps be forgiven for expecting a little too much sentimentality, but although there is much sensitivity with regards to the traits and leanings of its main characters, these stories are by no means 'weaker' than would be written by any man.

I particularly enjoyed the atmospherics that seemed to 'emanate' from the pages like ectoplasm, and in a way that is hard to define. I also enjoyed the story that was set on Mars, and when one thinks that these notions were created long before we'd achieved any form of space travel at all - it's quite remarkable!

Whenever I feel the need to escape, I think of picking up this book of short stories and it works every time!

A thoroughly enjoyable Collection of works that you will definitely be reading again!
