Wonderful escape

by Agraciada on Jul 8, 2010

Together, McKinley and Dickinson have created a collection of stories that offer a reader a vision of alternate worlds that charms the fiction reader. The characters and real and their lives complex.

Spellbinding

by Ellyb on Nov 15, 2009

With "Fire: Tales of Elemental Spirits," Peter Dickinson and Robin McKinley continue the series begun so promisingly with "Water." This volume of short stories is just as masterful as its predecessor. McKinley and Dickinson have very different styles, yet their stories complement each other's nicely as they explore mythical creatures related to the element of fire. From tales of the phoenix, salamanders, and fireworms from Dickinson, to McKinley's hellhounds and dragons, the stories captivate and energize the imagination. I absolutely loved this book, and each story absorbed me in its own way. The settings and characters were unique to their particular story-world, so none of them blended together generically. Instead, the reader gets to delve anew into each story's completely distinct, self-contained universe. I greatly look forward to "Air" and "Earth" by these two talented writers.
