Review by: Janet Schmidt on March 26, 2013 :
All five of these stories are up for the Ursa Major Short Fiction award for 2012. All five of them! And all five of them are a treat to read, from the very short whimsical Hot Chocolate for the Unicorn, to the heart-wrenching Magtwilla and the Mouse, to the third installment in the Shreddy series, Shreddy and the Christmas Ghost, to the two longer stories St Kalwain and the Lady Uta and A Night in Nocturnia, that each transport you to another time and place. Ms Lowd continues her superb writing, wonderful characters, and unmatched story-telling. Do yourself a favor, read them all.
