Editorial Reviews

Review

p>"Neil Gaiman asserted that "short stories are tiny windows into other worlds and other minds and other dreams.' This collection of ‘tiny windows,’ performed by narrators as diverse and vivid as the stories themselves, provides glimpses of worlds, minds, and dreams that are tragic, wistful, disturbing, and thought provoking. The variety of content will entice a wide audience, particularly considering how well each story has been matched with an appropriate voice. The performers are outstanding -- fully invested in making the most of the short format. Whether characters are living on the edge in America or trying to make sense of a dystopian world, the narrators’ performances make these stories come alive behind those tiny windows, and the listener may even see their own reflection in the glass. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award." --AudioFile

"This anthology rejoices in its range of subject matter, its emotional complexity, and its depiction of quietly powerful moments." --Shelf Awareness

"A fine celebration of the many guises a short story can take while still doing its essential work." --Kirkus Reviews --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
