The Abhorsen trilogy by the same author is possibly my favourite trilogy of all time. They're amazingly well-written, and the plots are exciting and fantastic without being too eccentric or fluffy.

This is a copy that Shven-bob picked up from a charity shop - he's read it, and now he's passing it on to me to read and register.

Blurb from the back cover

If the writer tells the stories, do the stories tell the writer?

Thirteen tales lurk within these covers and although I didn't realise it when I was writing them, each one tells a different chapter of my story as a writer. Some I wrote long ago, others more recently. Some are sad, some are not. Many are dark, but not without hope, and others would like to make you laugh or at least attract a smile.

Thirteen stories from the international bestselling author, including the award-winning story Nicholas Sayre and the Creature in the Case. Each one is introduced by Garth Nix, giving context, anecdotes and a glimpse into his creative process. This edition also includes a bonus section of frequently asked questions and answers.

Feb 2008? Nearly 3 years? Ouch. I'm putting this on my nightstand to start reading it next. :) I'm really looking forward to it!

I really enjoyed the comedy ones, like "Down to the Scum Quarter", and I also really liked "Endings". The first story made me want to read the Abhorsen trilogy again. And move to glorious steampunky Ancelstierre. *sigh*

My plans for this book are vague. I will put it on my AVL shelf for now, but I think I know someone who might enjoy this one, since he loved the Abhorsen trilogy.
