Tor.com Thursdays: short story review

TOR.COM THURSDAYS -peter beagle

Hello everyone! I’m here with this week’s Tor.com Thursday post and mini review. What a beautiful piece of fiction we read this week!

Just to let you all know, I am stopping this meme next week as I’m making a few changes to my blog schedule! I’m going into a new job with longer hours so realised I needed to make some more time for myself and not have to panic to make posts. Read a full post about my decision here.

THIS WEEK’S TOR.COM STORY WAS: THE STORY OF KAO YU BY PETER S. BEAGLE

32596095

4 stars

This was an enjoyable little story about objectivity and justice. Kao Yu is an aging and wise judge but when he gets called upon for a case regarding a shockingly beautiful pick-pocket, he faces some issues he’s never had to deal with before.

I’ve never read a Beagle story before but after reading this, I’m interested to read some of his other work. This was superbly written, with a beautiful and haunting undertone throughout.
