Starlings (Kobo eBook)
“Exquisitely written feats of imagination, each one leaving an impression long after it’s done.”—Kelley Armstrong, bestselling author of Rituals.
In this intimate first collection from award-winning novelist Jo Walton (Among Others, The King’s Peace, Necessity) are captivating glimpses of her subtle myths and wholly reinvented realities. An ancient Eritrean coin uncovers the secrets of lovers and thieves. The magic mirror sees all but can do almost nothing. A search engine logically proceeds down the path of an existential crisis. Three Irish siblings thieve treasures with ingenuity, bad poetry, and the aid of the Queen of Cats. Through eclectic stories, intriguing vignettes, inspired poetry, and more, Walton soars with humans, machines, and more than a hint of magic.
