Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Sunday, October 13, 2019
I got this ex-library hardcover from Better World Books, as it's an upcoming selection for my monthly book group.

Later: I enjoyed most of these stories, though it seems that I missed the bits where they're interconnected - and judging by the book-group discussion I think I liked the book better because I *wasn't* spotting the tie-ins. Anyway, the author has a lovely style that ranges from terse to lyrical, and my favorite tales were evocative and quite inventive. Those included the dark-yet-triumphant fairy-tale-inspired "Drownings" and the hilarious exclusive-university-cliques-inspired "A Brief History of the Homely Wench Society," which features some great stealth-book-swaps and has a very satisfying conclusion.
