Charmed I’m Sure (2013) Elliott James

Charmed__PushingLuckI love short stories–they’re like catnip to me. And short stories that introduce a character or author’s writing before I have to buy the book are even better (I’ve gotten better about not finishing books I dislike, but I hate having spent money on terrible books, especially if I can’t sell them back.

This was a good solid introduction to the author and the character. I can’t say that as a short story it blew me away (sorry, but it’s hard to live up to the author by whom I judge fantasy short stories, Charles de Lint.)

One aside. I read the the story, then re-read and authors name, and was still surprised to see the author referred to as “he” and “him.” Of course, the author photo only made me feel more like it was a female author, and now I have no idea if it’s a marketing ploy or what. It’s totally my problem, but it gave me an odd disconnect.
