N. K. Jemisin is one of the most powerful and acclaimed speculative fiction authors of our time. In the first collection of her evocative short fiction, Jemisin equally challenges and delights readers with thought-provoking narratives of destruction, rebirth, and redemption. In these stories, Jemisin sharply examines modern society, infusing magic into the mundane, and drawing deft parallels in the fantasy realms of her imagination. Dragons and hateful spirits haunt the flooded streets of New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. In a parallel universe, a utopian society watches our world, trying to learn from our mistakes. A black mother in the Jim Crow South must save her daughter from a fey offering impossible promises. And in the Hugo award-nominated short story "The City Born Great," a young street kid fights to give birth to an old metropolis's soul.… (mehr)

A fair few of the stories in this collection ended kind of oddly/suddenly, but there were several that I liked a fair bit, most notably the final story in the collection. ( )

I am not particularly familiar with short stories as a medium and can't say I enjoy it too much. Some short stories were really, really good, but a lot of them were just okay or even a slog to read. ( )

I really enjoyed this collection of short stories. As with most short story collections, even one by a single author, I enjoyed some stories more than others, but the thing that I love about short story collections is that the stories I really liked might be different from those another reader really liked. For me, there were a few stories in Jemisin's collection that really stood out and had an impact on me.

"The City Born Great" was a powerful story with a great main character, and the premise of the young street kid giving birth to the soul of New York was wonderful. There were also some laugh-out-loud moments for me in this story as it really came alive for me. "Red Dirt Witch" was another story that had a very powerful message, and I loved all of the detail in the story, along with the struggle depicted, not only between Black and white, but between new and old. "L'Alchimista" and "Cuisine de M moires" were both fun reads as both dealt with food but in very different ways, and both had great character development and character struggles which really allowed me to connect with them.

I recommend this collection for anybody interested in many different sci-fi stories, styles, and themes, all from one of the best contemporary sci-fi authors. ( )

This was an unbelievably solid short story collection, and my first book by Jemisin. Story-by-story ratings are below, but overall I really liked the anthology. Jemisin has a very singular, thoughtful voice. She’s also very bold and creative, playing with structure, tense, pronouns, etc. in her stories. Some of the settings she creates are among the most unique worldbuilding I’ve seen in a while. There’s some recurring themes that are found repeatedly over her stories – anxiety around sex and procreation, feeling torn between two cultures or desires, and insidious, hateful/predatory invaders. Jemisin handles these themes in a way that really resonated with me – sex wasn’t just thrown in for sexiness’s sake, there wasn’t much in the way of mindless violence/gore. That’s not to say it wasn’t there, just that it had a bigger purpose than to titillate. I’ll definitely be checking out her other stuff based on this collection.

The Ones Who Stay and Fight: ★★★★★
The City Born Great: ★★★ I get what it was trying to do but it just didn’t work for me.
Red Dirt Witch: ★★★★★
L’Alchimista: ★★★★
The Effluent Engine: ★★★★★
Cloud Dragon Skies: ★★★
The Trojan Girl: ★★★★
Valedictorian: ★★★★★
The Storyteller’s Replacement: ★★★★ The author relies on this kind of framing device a LOT, and I’m not sure it’s really necessary.
The Brides of Heaven: ★★★★★
The Evaluators: ★★★★★ This one reminded me a lot of The Sparrow.
Walking Awake: ★★★★★
The Elevator Dancer: ★
Cuisine des Mémoires: ★★
Stone Hunger: ★★★★★
On the Banks of the River Lex: ★★
The Narcomancer: ★★★ Really interesting worldbuilding, but not as much plot as one would hope.
Henosis: ★★★★ Its impossible to talk about this story without thinking of King’s Misery, but the horror/suspense in this is very different. Organization of this story was interesting, too.
Too Many Yesterdays, Not Enough Tomorrows: ★★★
The You Train: ★★
Non-Zero Probabilities: ★★★★
Sinners, Saints, Dragons, and Haints, in the City Beneath the Still Waters: ★★★★ ( )
