Hamilton shows that her talent for creating compelling characters and setting memorable scenes has been with her from the beginning. Each of the stories
in this collection is unforgettable. Anita Blake appears in two and there are
several stories set in the same universe as her first novel, Nightseer. Fans of Hamilton's work will definitely want
a copy for their collections.
Four stories set in the Nightseer universe show intriguing glimpses of world-building, and "Geese" is a lovely tale of girl who has hidden herself as a goose to escape a compulsion and unexpectedly finds her true love. (Berkley, Oct., 272 pp., $23.95)
