    A very fast (about 2 hours for me), but fascinating read. As a whole, the collection is almost overwhelming with how wonderfully imaginative it is. My three favorite stories are: That Damn Shoe, Mer-Sea, and Jenkins' Earth.That Damn Shoe, as Moore pointed out in the author notes, reminds me of a lost Shrek scene. Every fairy tale creature known to man, out in mass, as "Prince Charming" creates a scene. I love that he's not at all what you'd expect.Mer-Sea brings to mind the hunting scene from the 4th Pirates of the Caribbean, except the mermaids don't talk or sing. I love how dark the story is.Jenkins' Earth is like an abbreviated, grown up version of Wall-E. The exceptions being that the earth is claimed by sand and not trash, and Jenkins has an interesting relationship with her robot lackey.

    I've admired Mary's writing since our graduate fiction workshop at Mills in 2009. This collection is not what we workshopped, but it has the same talented voice. I became so invested in many of her characters that I did not want to leave them when their short stories ended. However, the ending of "Mer-Sea" was perfect and other endings were quite good. I simply wanted to stay in the worlds Mary created. "That Damn Shoe" and "The Mark of the Hasselti" were among my favorite stories.
