Mind-blowingly gorgeous – filled with wickedly powerful girls and women, playing games with words and songs and gender roles. It feels like reading a collection of stories that were expurgated from the Grimm collections for being too radical. Utterly loved it.

The Forgotten and the Fantastical 5 which features my short story People Will Talk has been shortlisted in the short story collection category of the Rubery Book Award.
If you haven’t read the book yet and would like to see what all the excitement is about, you can get your own discounted copy from Mothers Milk Books before the end of June.
If you have read it, please do let me know what you think. I will let you know the final results of the Award when it is announced.
