Book-A-Day #187 (1/19): Dark Mondays by Kage Baker

I don't really have much to say about this book; it's a new collection of Kage Baker short stories (all unrelated to her "Company" universe, and pretty much all dark fantasy), and it's quite good.

The amazing thing, for me, is that five of the eleven stories here -- including "The Maid on the Shore," which just sneaks over the border to novel-length -- are originals. So anybody who likes Baker has no excuse not to buy this; nobody but her, her agent, and the Night Shade boys saw these stories before this book was published.

(I'm not sure how Baker manages to produces so many short stories, especially when they're all such high quality, but, given the evidence here, I wouldn't rule out a deal with some infernal power.)

The Fabulous Book-A-Day Index!
