What they say:
A quirky compilation of short-stories by 8 individualistic authors with very differing styles. Enjoy!
What we say – review by Nikki Mason:
This is a wonderfully eclectic mix of short stories including fairy
stories, modern fables and touchingly emotional pieces. If you’re the
sort of person who prefers a box of assorted truffles over a bar of
dairy milk – this is for you.
For me the stand out stories were Betwixt and Between by Lucy P
Naylor, which was disturbing but delightful and charmingly written and
Going Home by Lyz Russo, a chilling little tale that uses the short
story genre to its full potential. Both had the air of the supernatural
about them, which appealed to my gothic tastes. Having said that, all
the stories have an air of magic and mystery, even if it’s just the
funny little circumstances that life can throw up.
An easy book to dip in and out of and a crazy mix of writing styles, Mercury Silver is totally worth a punt.
