Too busy for an in-depth review? Sips of Soup is for you! A one-minute look at a variety of books, hopefully providing just enough information for you to decide if you’d like to give them a try.
by Marian Allen
Published in 2012. If you like fantasy, you will enjoy Marian Allen’s frothy exploration of the genre. These short stories all have two things in common: animals—existing or imaginary—and fine writing. Among my favorites are Millefeurs, a lush piece which changed my view of unicorns; Follow Your Bliss, a short-short that gave me a dark chuckle and Out of the Cradle, which takes a fresh look at life under the sea. Marian’s imagination is a fertile playground, well worth the visit. I loved seeing the facets of Ms. Allen’s writing, by turns playful and then thoughtful. This e-book is highly recommended.
