Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“While the stories are distinct—by turns funny, sinister, and touching—they have much in common, sharing an arch tone, a curious metaphysicality, and some familiar folk-tale tropes, and the authors’ commitment to the original conceit gives the volume additional cohesion.” Booklist
“This star-studded exercise in creative writing tests the wits of favorite authors and shows readers how even the big shots hone their craft.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Engaging, with strokes of brilliance.” Kirkus Reviews
“The stories embrace a range of styles and subjects, but, like their enigmatic and mysterious inspirations, each touches on the strange, the odd, and the fantastic.” Horn Book
