A whole-year collection! I have loved Gregory's novels, and wanted to simply tuck in to this, as if a meal. Instead--what fortitude and willpower!--I spread it out, nibbling away each month or so. I love how open to risky innovation the author is, but , for all the terrific riffing on tropes and conventions across the spectrum of speculative fiction, Gregory consistently centers on strong characters. A very good writer--try these out, or circle back after you try out his novels.
