Tor.com Thursdays: short story review

tor-com14

It’s my weekly book meme, woohoo! Such fun! Thanks to everyone joining in so far ❤

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:

  • On Thursday, I will pick a short story from Tor.com for us to all read…
  • The next Thursday, we will all review the Tor.com story that was picked the previous week…
  • The review can be in depth or short and snappy! There are no boundaries on how you want to review the story…
  • After my own personal review of that weeks story, I will post the next story to read for next week…
  • And on and on it goes…
  • Please remember to tag back to my post (pingback!!) if you join in on this meme, that way I can read all your reviews!

THIS WEEK’S TOR.COM READ IS: TOM, THOM BY  K. M. FEREBEE

5 stars

My mini-review:

I adored this short story and the cover is incredible! I love fairy tales and legends so this was well and truly perfect for my style. This is story about changelings, but it’s different to some of the others I’ve read, in the sense that Tom’s mother can recognise her real son over the changeling and the changeling is quiet and reserved.

Such stunning, vivid imagery. Another review on Goodreads commented on how he could hear the snow being crunched down by the characters in the book and I totally agree with that. It reminded me of Gaiman’s writing throughout, beautiful and terrifying all at the same time.


NEXT WEEK’S TOR.COM READ IS: Excerpts from a Film (1942-1987) BY A.C. Wise

“Excerpts from a Film (1942-1987)” by A.C. Wise is a disturbing horror novelette about a young woman, who like many others, goes to Hollywood to become a star and is haunted by the murders of several other aspiring actresses. And of her influence, rippling up through the years, on the man who “discovered” her and on film itself.

  1. This sounds like an amazing short story! The thought of the snow crunching in my head kind of gave me the chills hahaha (but in a good way!)
    I love wolves so it’s a no brainer 🙂
