This was almost a so-so. There were some really interesting stories but there were also a couple that didn't flow well and I could get invested in. I think I would have enjoyed it more if I didn't have to rush to read and return it to the library 🙃

As with all anthologies there‘s hits and misses, but lots of hits and authors added to my “To Read” list.

Some very, very good stories in here, including a DEEEEEPLY disturbing one by Rebecca Roanhorse & one I don‘t think I‘ll ever stop thinking about by Indrapramit Das, called “The Shadow We Cast through Time.” Not all of the stories are superb, but many are. Can‘t wait to read more from these authors! 4.5⭐️

Also reading one short story per day from this anthology. Today‘s was a verrrry good one by Minsoo Yang that weaves together strands of historiography, epic fantasy, feminism and a lot more. Again, I have to stop myself from reading on. ONE. PER. DAY. (After all, I have grading to do!)
