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.
Three short stories, all drawing heavily on traditional stories from various cultures, all featuring a kiss. They were all a little more bitter-sweet than I was expecting. I think “Such Spicy Curses as These” was my favorite, although “Hatchling” has been bouncing around in the back of my mind for the past several days. [Feb. 2010]
