Read Irresponsibly

Books: The Modern Fae's Guide to Surviving Humanity

The Modern Fae's Guide to Surviving Humanity, edited by Joshua Palmatier and Patricia Bray. Urban fantasy, 308 pages. Paperback; anthology.

The theme for the book is laid out in the title. The stories span dryads protesting against a new highway to a drag-queen werewolf fighting off the Wild Hunt. None of the stories are tragic like that last Jim Hines short story was, and many of them are sweet. While nothing in this book makes me want to love it forever and ever amen, I'm pleased to have spent the time enjoying it, and will happily loan it to others.

I picked it up because I like the theme, and it had plenty of authors who I like, respect, and enjoy.

I recommend it to any fairie lovers and displaced modern fae.
