St. Kalwain and the Lady Uta: Very good. Well written and kept my interest. Did not finish as I expected. 4/5 One Night in Nocturnia: What a great story from a mouse's perspective. 5/5 Magtwilla and the Mouse: This time a cat's point of view. Another excellent, well written story. 5/5 Shreddy and the Christmas Ghost: Another really good story. This is becoming a habit I think. A good habit. Lived it. 5/5 Hot Chocolate for the Unicorn: A nice story to finis, reminiscent of childhoods spent deep in real imaginings. Oh, to be there again. A much simpler caring time. 5/5 Excellent group of stories. Each different, yet the same. Each making me want more. 5/5

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.
