By Singing Light

Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.

Fire Watch

Fire Watch - Connie Willis As is apparently my tendency with short story collections, I had mixed feelings about this one. I loved the title story and “Blued Moon”. I enjoyed several of the others. I really didn’t like “All my Darling Daughters,” which came across a little forcefully as “all men are bad forever and ever amen” for my tastes. The writing was great for that one, however.
