Robots vs. Fairies
Robots vs. Fairies | Dominik Parisien, Navah Wolfe
13 posts | 8 read | 2 reading | 29 to read
A unique anthology of all-new stories that challenges authors to throw down the gauntlet in an epic genre battle and demands an answer to the age-old question: Who is more awesome—robots or fairies? Rampaging robots! Tricksy fairies! Facing off for the first time in an epic genre death match! People love pitting two awesome things against each other. Robots vs. Fairies is an anthology that pitches genre against genre, science fiction against fantasy, through an epic battle of two icons. On one side, robots continue to be the classic sci-fi phenomenon in literature and media, from Asimov to WALL-E, from Philip K. Dick to Terminator. On the other, fairies are the beloved icons and unquestionable rulers of fantastic fiction, from Tinkerbell to Tam Lin, from True Blood to Once Upon a Time. Both have proven to be infinitely fun, flexible, and challenging. But when you pit them against each other, which side will triumph as the greatest genre symbol of all time? There can only be one…or can there? Featuring an incredible line-up of authors including John Scalzi, Catherynne M. Valente, Ken Liu, Max Gladstone, Alyssa Wong, Jonathan Maberry, and many more, Robots vs. Fairies will take you on a glitterbombed journey of a techno-fantasy mash-up across genres.

May reads! Standouts were the Cobain biography, Tenth of December, Bloodchild, and Robots vs Fairies (a lot of short stories for me this month). Also loved It Ended Badly, by the author of Get Well Soon. Both recommended for fans of tongue in cheek history books

I've been picking off the short stories in this anthology very sporadically. Whenever I need a quick distraction or just feel like a change of pace from a current read. Almost through with it now - but have definitely enjoyed it. 👍

I'm team Fae...FYI.

I read a reprint of Sarah Gailey's 'Bread and Milk and Salt' on Tor about dark fairies and terrible humans and some sweet revenge.

Read it here: https://www.tor.com/2018/11/07/reprints-bread-and-milk-and-salt-sarah-gailey/

This book took quite some time for me to finish, but I think that was only bc I'm not used to reading short story anthologies. I enjoyed most of the stories, and thought it was super interesting that they had the authors tell after their story why they were "team robot" or "team fairy." Second book finished during the #24b42019 #readathon

I loved this short story collection! With very few exceptions, all of the stories were excellent. (One of them, Ironheart, was super ableist. A couple others were boring or sexist.) Highly recommend this collection of stories about why robots or fairies are the best. #TeamRobot

Still working my way through this one. I‘ve enjoyed the stories I‘ve read so far but I can‘t seem to work up any enthusiasm to pick up the book and finish it. #booklunch

My book haul today from Kramerbooks with @erinreads. I only bought three books. That's restraint right? (We'll ignore the yarn store spree 😂)

AlaMich Robots vs Fairies sounds fun. 😊 2y
