Monstrous Affections: An Anthology of Beastly Tales by Kelly Link
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I've read books about about half the authors in this collection and, while I appreciated their contributions, there was nothing surprising here. The other authors were good enough for me to keep an eye out for their other works to see how they hold up in a longer format. Because teens don't seem to read story collections, this will be a hard sell; the bigger disappointment is that I just don't see this collection having a lot of staying power in libraries. Maybe I'll be wrong.
