Otherworld Tales 2005 by Kelley Armstrong (e-fiction)

Author: Kelley Armstrong
1st Published: 2005

Otherworld Tales is a little different from Armstrong’s other e-fiction, as rather than a novella, this time she chose to write a collection of short stories with some input from her fans. She polled her readers & they chose four Otherworld characters as well as four events mentioned or briefly alluded to in the books, while she chose the final four. This has led to a loving look into the lives of characters who fans have come to know very well & serves as fillers to the back story of the published books.

As such, if you haven’t already read the books, these won’t make any sense to you at all, as they are completely unconnected, so this would be of interest to existing fans only, but the final story, Bargain, leads on to her forthcoming novel, Broken, so if you intend to read this, read the books first, then read Otherworld Tales before its release in May this year.

Not as “complete” as her other online fiction, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Score: 6
