A Study In Scarlet

by Arthur Conan Doyle

*SPOILER*
Great story overall, though it could be improved. First, Jonathan Small is unknown until the mystery is solved. But the story was written before this rule was applied. Second, Sherlock Holmes does not solve the entire mystery. He doesnt explain the situation. Instead, Jonathan Small takes this role. But, since this was one of the first mystery novel ever written, this is exceptable. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle does an exceptional job with his imagination. Excellent descriptive characters and plot.

After the Siege

by Cory Doctorow

The premise sounds like just too much at once: robots, war, zombies, a wizard, starvation. But somehow it all comes together for a riveting story. I'd love to see it expanded into a full-length novel.

Stranger Things Happen

by Kelly Link

Kelly Link is one of my favorite authors. Her other book available on ManyBooks, Magic For Beginners, is one of the best books I\\\'ve ever read. That being said, I didn\\\'t love this collection. You can tell she hadn\\\'t really found her voice yet, and some of the stories are just irritating. However, Flying Lessons is excellent, a modern tale of Greek mythology. A few other stories are pretty good too, just not memorable. This book is worth reading, for sure, just not Link\\\'s best.

What a marvelous book, but what a shame that the title story was left out of this version. However, the remaining stories are enough to make anyone fall in love with Kelly Link\'s magical realism.
The Hortlak and Stone Animals are masterpieces, guaranteed to live in your head long after you\'ve finished reading.
