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.

The Coyote Road - 'Ellen Datlow',  'Terri Windling' An anthology of stories about tricksters. I was waffling until I saw the list of authors, which decided me in favor of reading it. I liked some of the stories, but I wasn’t super wild about the anthology as a whole. Not sure why, as I often like trickster characters. Maybe they need to have some kindness/humanity about them? Not sure. [June 2011]
