Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
In spite of the cutesy gimmick, the authors are a who's who of fantasy to include Sarah Hoyt, Deb Stover, Esther Friesner, Laura Resnick and Diane Duane; etc. Special acclaim goes to Peter Norwood who aptly titled his well written entry "And into the Fire" as he is the sole male contributor; Ms. Little must have settled on author realism even with an enchanted mall as finding men to admit they chose the mall over football would be too surrealistic. Surprisingly none of the tales are weak as each contains a bit of whimsy as if the writers truly enjoyed doing these tales. Where else could one shop for a familiar, watch the IRS audit a Wiccan supply store owner, observe I'm a unicorn watcher (apologies to the O'Kaysons), and of course trolls arguing over taxes. Readers will be enchanted from start of finish when Carman the untalented offspring of two mages deals with the enchanting "Poop Thief"; that sums up a lighthearted fun collection.
This was my first Anthology by Little but will not be my last. When I am done writing this review back to the Kindle store for more I go.
I would love to see more from the Enchantment Place World and even other Enchantment Place locations. Just think of all the fun that could happen in Florida during Spring Break or London because Diagon Alley shop keepers are not happy about the mall. There are all the catotombs in underground Chicogo for mischief. the recent sink holes in Los Angels to be blambed by under dewlers. Redneck Fey in Texas. Cowboy Fey in Airizona and New Mexico. Enchantment Places inside Disneylands.
I could go on with at least twenty more easily but I will spare you that as I belive I have made my point. I do hope Ms Little will see or hear about this review and carry out more Enchantment Place Stories as I loved them all and want MORE.
