    I'm excited about this; though I've read about half the included stories already, they've been uniformly excellent. Tor.com did the genre a service by resurrecting the novella format, rather than forcing writers to pad out to the bloated lengths of current novel publishing. Fantasy writers rarely appeal to me, and I'd never have discovered N. K. Jemisin without the ability to read her shorter works.

        If you don't care to pay for the entire collection, nearly all of the stories are available on the Tor.com website for online reading, searchable by genre and author.
