Joy to the Reviews!

Joy to the Worlds coverIn the past week, I’ve seen a slew of reviews pop up for Joy to the Worlds, including one from Publisher’s Weekly. I figured I’d share some of this holiday cheer with you, so Joy to the Reviews!

Great review from Publishers Weekly
“Eight short stories by four authors glisten with holiday wonder, each one decorated in hues of legend, myth, SF, and quirky, joyful fun.”

Great review from San Francisco Book Review
“…an imaginative ride into the ‘what-if’. Drawing from traditional mythology and lore as well as time-travel and science fiction, each author presents a unique perspective on the traditional holiday tale.” (Can also read review at Only One More Page)

Great review from Fan Girl Nation
“…brain-bending, strange, and wonderful…perfect for taking your mind off holiday stresses…Grab a copy for yourself, and think about your book-obsessed friends as well.”

Great review from Library Nerdette
“The holidays plus spec-fic… yes please! I was tempted to hold off reading this book until closer to Christmas, but I couldn’t do it. I needed this book in my life. And the good news is… Joy to the Worlds did not disappoint! The bad news is, I want more! Way more. This book was unlike any other holiday collection out there, and that’s why I loved it. Is it Christmas yet?”

Good review from Geek Syndicate
“…clever and evocative of the mystery and thrill of Christmas by turns creepy and sometimes amusing. Ranging from dark dystopian worlds to comedic retro-futures, four diverse writers find new ways to combine these disparate worlds into something anyone will enjoy.”

Early Reader Review
“Pick up ‘Joy to the Worlds’ for this winter holiday, settle yourself in a comfy armchair with a hot chocolate at hand, and let go of reality. The twists and turns will leave you gasping for breath and looking forward to the next cliffhanger.”  4/5 stars
