Quotes & Awards

  • “[A] collection of richly imagined short fiction…All but one story in this masterfully done archive of previously published stories are fantasy, horror, or science fiction and are populated by a host of outré beings, from vampires and angels to demons. Nix knows them well, and the result is a feast for speculative fiction fans of all ages.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “The title novella, set in Nix’s Old Kingdom, is the gem of this collection of nineteen stories…Invariably well written and featuring engaging characters throughout, these stories are all a pleasure to read…Nix’s fans will treasure this collection.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “A collection of short speculative fiction showcases a hugely popular author…A tasty buffet for Nix fans and a comprehensive sampler for new readers.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “To accommodate such a diverse group of stories, this audiobook has ten narrators, with each narrator delivering a complete story. The arrangement allows each narrator to set the tone of his or her story. Every narration features a unique voice and is performed with accents that fit the particular work. For example, the witches, vampires, and cadets of The Worshipful Company of the Greenwash & Field Market Bridge are all given voices that fit their characters. Each narrator is a good fit for the stories he or she delivers, and the totality of the narration results in a captivating collection.”
