2020 Read Harder Challenge, book 19
Prompt: Read an edition of a literary magazine (digital or physical)
Title: Worlds Seen in Passing: 10 Years of Tor.com Short Fiction
Editor: Irene Gallo

Me being me, I decided to read the giant anthology of Tor.com short stories. It was lovely to absorb quicker narratives after the 800 pages of Avalon. My favorite from this anthology is “The Shape of my Name” by Nino Cipri.

#bookmail means that I have even more reason to keep working my way through The Mists of Avalon! I‘m struggling a little to stick with it—it is SO heavy and has one of my big triggery plotlines (betrayal). But I‘m determined to finish it because it is VERY good and I‘ve already committed so much time to it. Now I‘ve got these to look forward to! #bookhaul

I just received this beauty over the weekend. Short stories originally appearing on Tor. I'm guessing quite a few of these take place #thedayaftertomorrow
