Having read the Horror and the Science Fiction books in this series of short stories with a gendergaylesbianbisexual bend when Mr Dude said he had a copy of the out of print fantasy volume in the series I begged pleaded and nuzzled neck The result I got to enjoy this selection of short storiesNot surprising to those of you who know me well the Science Fiction selection is still my favourite but this one certainly was enjoyable to me than the Horror issue Granted I have a low gorge factor so the horror had too much ick factor when I read it This the fantasy series has some solid stuff in it and nearly no ick Ergo enjoyableFrost Painting was a pretty story about transition and the fear that holds us back in what though less enjoyable we are used toGary in the Shadows was a sad tale and a really touching one about a man whose ghosts literally come back to haunt and protect himPrince of the Dark Green Sea was a wonderful gay re telling of the tale of the fisherman and his wifeWater Snakes was really touching and reminded me uite a bit of some of Jeanette Winterson s workGestures Too Late on a Gravel Road was uite haunting and left me feeling very sad though a little vindicated The notion of not uite saying goodbye soon enough haunts most of us I thinkThe Fall of the Kings was the longest tale read like a novella and was so wonderfully dark and sensual that I think it placed second in my favourites of the book It is also the most classically fantasy story in the bookCloudmaker had a uniue story idea but left me a little confused and coldMagicked Tricks was a fun also sword and sorcery setting fantasy story and a cute romp to boot It s basically a murder mystery with a it of a magical twistThe Sound of Angels was wonderful but to my mind belonged in a science fiction collection given the technological story linchpin and made me wonder how wonderful or awful it would be to be neurally linked to someone while they diedThe King s Folly also left me a little cold but really it had a solid idea and a nice twistBeside the Well was a beautiful and dark story set in a Japanese setting that I found utie lyrical and reminded me a bit of the novel The Fox Woman I read uite a while backThe Home Town Boy only suffered from being too darned short but was otherwise a neat ideaExpression of Desire was a nice vampiric tale with an interesting take on both desire and hunger and with a neat counterpoint of frustration and letdownThere are Things Which are Hidden from the Eyes of the Everyday was downright erotic and read a little like an X rated version of The Alchemist Full Moon and Empty Arms was a soft and fluffy piece but to be honest wasn t all that fantastical just a little bit spiritualMahu was wonderful an aging soldier who gets a chance to relive his youth through the magic of Hawaii and some powerful memories of those he lost during Pearl HarborThe Stars are Tears was a Thieves World story a world I ve never read and suffered a bit for my unknowing I think Two very hunky gladiators who are in love suffer when one is tempted by a fellow who falls from the sky literally An interesting tale and it whetted my appetite for Theives WorldDesire was a nice diary entry piece about learning who onesself is through the use of spirits and ghostsYoung Lady Who Loved Cattepillars was a superb and asian fantasy about a young girl who absolutely refused to conform and the girl who might love her with a little help from a butterfly with but one day to live on the worldIn Memory Of was a Whitewolf tale with shapeshifters and had a nice dash of the erotic within its story I uite admit I enjoyed the Whitewolf world when I was younger so this one likely titillated me a bit than it might someone elseIn Mysterious Ways was a super and funny little tale from a favourite author of mine Tanya Huff where thief is asked to steal a minor god s relic and is stuck between that rock and a hard placeIn the House of the Man in the Moon was my favourite of the tale about a man who even as a child could sense spirits and who tries to reconcile his present day aiding of the police with his youthful vengeance against a man who preyed on children like he once was This was just the best story in the book and I m glad it was the lastA common thread throughout most of the tales was one of loss nearly every character had lost a previous lover to violence illness or some other unnatural death I find it telling that in this series written in the eighties there s very little prose that includes a collected and stable couple It s not surprising and especially given a short story collection conflict breeds of an interesting reading experience but it was interesting Beautiful Torment Beautiful #1 print fantasy volume in the series I
