  • I read about half the stories in the book Some of them were well written and some of them were extremely well written They all made me terribly sad, which is the reason why I returned it before finishing it.


  • Still reading this, but for this one story, Jesus at the Bat, I love you Esther FriesnerFinished I didn t know how wide Friesner s range was till now Funny, poignant, heartbreaking stories, well worth reading Go find this book.


  • I enjoyed this collection of short stories by Esther Friesner, mostly reprinted from elsewhere My favorites were her humorous ones Some of them were a bit obtuse for me, but I really liked the title story and How to Make Unicorn Pie.



  • This is one of the best books of short stories I ve ever read Very diverse, from hilarious to heart breaking


  • Esther Freisner is one of my favorite sci fi speculation dystopia comedic fantasy writers I gobble up anything I can get by her So maybe my review is a bit biased But DAMN the woman can write
