Review: Anthology 1: A Collection of 8 Science Fiction & Fantasy Short Stories by The Novel Fox

Anthology I, The Novel Fox's first published anthology, features eight science fiction and fantasy short stories by authors Dominic Dulley, Gerri Leen, T.D. Edge, Rati Mehrotra, Shawn Scarber, Ernesto Pavan, Peter White, and Shane Halbach.

With stories ranging from "Paying Old Debts," about a thoughtful sex robot assassin, to "A Wand's Tale," chronicling the short life of a sentient magic wand, to "Subsidence," which includes a horrific golf hazard, the stories of Anthology I are riveting from beginning to end.

We hope you enjoy them as much as we did.

Received for review

I’m a big fan of short story collections. I have loved short stories in general since my first introduction to them in the form of an Agatha Christie anthology. They provide a lovely dose of quality content in a bite sized form. They’re great to read back to back or one at a time when you have a few minutes. So, needless to say, I was quite excited when this anthology crossed my path.

As a Science Fiction and Fantasy collection I was expecting some far out stuff, but each story was remarkably down to earth and thought provoking. My favorite story in the collection was Paying Old Debts which sounds bizarre since it is about a sex robot assassin (no really) but it was actually quite touching. A Wand’s Tale was also entertaining and but bittersweet.

Overall, Science Fiction fans will find this collection a lovely read and I certainly recommend it.
