I do not recommend reading these if you have not read the books, but if you have read the mysteries, they are delightful.

They are little slices of life–peeks into the lives of the two characters, including two stories from Calvin’s POV–which we do not get at all in the books.

Dopamine: Take Only as Directed This takes place immediately after The Mystery of Nevermore and is Sebastian and Calvin’s first New Year’s Eve.

Credit Scores and Cohabitation is how they found their new apartment after the events in The Mystery of the Curiosities. House hunting is the worst.

(Realtor) showed us a railroad-style apartment, which he insisted was the same square footage as a “normal” one-bedroom, with the trade-off being it was four feet wide.

The Ghost of Durango is set right after The Mystery of the Moving Image, and it is Calvin forcing Sebastian to take a vacation. The bit I like best about this story is the glimpse into why the two work well as partners.

Calvin had been learning how to react to my need for help with situations that the rest of the world considered inconsequential, but for me, were at times akin to moving mountains. Calvin was also learning that he was one of the few people I trusted, one of the few I could admit to not having an adaptation for every situation, and that maybe I couldn’t hurdle this issue alone.

Interpersonal Relationship Studies on the Way to the Coffee House is one of the Calvin stories, and is set before The Mystery of the Bones. It’s just a tiny peek into Calvin’s brain.

The Good in the World is set after The Mystery of the Bones and it is another tiny snippet of Calvin’s thoughts.

The other stories were fine, but those are the ones that stuck out for me.
