A major first collection from a writer fast becoming one of the stars of the genre]e] Aliette de Bodard, multiple award winner and author of The Tea Master and the Detective, now brings readers fourteen dazzling tales that showcase the richly textured worldbuilding and beloved characters that have brought her so much acclaim. Come discover the breadth and endless invention of her universes, ranging from a dark Gothic Paris devastated by a magical war; to the multiple award-winning Xuya, a far-future space opera inspired by Vietnamese culture where scholars administrate planets and sentient spaceships are part of families. In the Nebula award and Locus award winning "Immersion", a young girl working in a restaurant on a colonized space station crosses paths with an older woman who has cast off her own identity. In the novelette "Children of Thorns, Children of Water", a shapeshifting dragon infiltrating a ruined mansion finds more than he's bargained for when his partner is snatched by eerie, child-like creatures. And in the award-winning "Three Cups of Grief, by Starlight", three very different people"e"a scholar, an engineer, and a spaceship"e"all must deal with the loss of a woman who was the cornerstone of their world. This collection includes a never-before seen 20,000-word novella, "Of Birthdays, and Fungus, and Kindness", set in Bodard's alternative dark Paris.… (mere)

The nice thing about this collection is that you can pick it up without knowing about the universes the stories are set and have an incredible read waiting for you. There is one new novella set in her Dominion of the Fallen series, but you don’t need to know the backstory to enjoy it. After reading a story set in Obsidian and Blood series, I now want to track down those books and read them. A great collection of short fiction and I can’t wait to read more from this writer.

Strong dish of stories with bones of anger and flesh of grief, rich with the fish sauce of compassion and tangy with the ginger garlic of persistence. These are tales of living past the unbearable losses of home and all but the last shards of family, in alien lands and holding fast to what can be held, even if it has come from the destroyers. 🌈 ( )

I'd read a work or two of Aliette de Bodard before Of Wars, and Memories, and Stralight, but this stunning collection has made me an unabashed fan. Each story is an exquisite work of art, exploring identity, love, loss, pain, violence, and family.
