Starlings: razor-sharp stories and poems from Jo Walton

Stephen King once wrote that “a short story is like a kiss in the dark from a stranger” – that is, sudden, pleasant, mysterious, dangerous and exiting, and the collected short fiction of Jo Walton, contained between covers in the newly published Starlings, is exemplary of the principle. Walton, after all, is one of science fiction’s major talents, and despite her protests that she “doesn’t really know how to write stories,” all the evidence is to the contrary.
