Book Review - Touch of Magic

Tuesday, May 11, 2010

I picked up Selected Shorts: A Touch of Magic (Selected Shorts: A Celebration of the Short Story) from the library too looking to fulfill a requirement for the Short Story Reading Challenge. I am a fan of science fiction and fantasy so I thought this would be right up my alley. I was mostly right this was an interesting read but with the same problem that most all short stories have that is they are too short.
If the story is good I want more and if it is bad then I don't want to be reading it in the first place. Nearly every single one of these stories left me wanting more. Come to think of it maybe that is the mark of a bad short story if you don't feel complete at the end then maybe it is lacking and so isn't that great after all.
Either way most of these stories left me wanting to delve further into their worlds, take that as you will.

Like I say this knocked off one of my requirements for The Short Story Reading Challenge.
