I should begin writing this review by pointing out that generally speaking, I’m not a short story reader. I want to enjoy this style of story more than I generally do. However, Kaleidoscope from Twelfth Planet Press edited by Alisa Krasnostein and Julia Rios is an example of how awesome short stories can truly be! This anthology is truly exceptional. I can’t imagine how difficult it would have been to choose the stories because they’re all fantastic in their way – if these were the ones that made it in, I am sure that just as many stories came really close and I’m sure many of them were also exceptional.

Blurb from Kaleidoscope on Goodreads:

Review:

For this review I’m going to concentrate on the stories that really resonated with me, it’s a large anthology and I figure that’s the easiest way to keep this review manageable.

I'm not a huge short story fan, but these ones were amazing. It was lovely to read about such diverse casts - by the end of it I'd forgotten we had a problem with diversity representation in our literature because my head was so full of interesting characters from all walks of life. Every story was well-chosen and suited the anthology perfectly.

Recommendation: enjoy one story per day with a cup of tea before work.
