    One thought on “Quartet: Four short stories, four explorations of the fantastic”

    1. This gets five stars for imagination, execution and ideas. I have no idea how to talk about the stories without spoilers. So all I will say is this little volume takes mythologies and turns them on their heads. Very highly recommended

    2. I really enjoyed the short stories I found in this interesting collection. The author does a great job. If you are not a writer of short stories, you may not know that a lot goes into the process. The author has surpassed expectations by making the stories feel complete and each is like reading a complete book. I won't go into each stoy, but they are compelling and make the reader think, definitely a plus and a challenge. Leo McBride has met the challenge of writing great short stories and I hop [...]

    3. A quartet of tales.It's a landscape without monsters, without elves or orcs but still a fantasy landscape telling a myth that might have been.I think I misled myself from the sub-title 'Four short stories of the fantastic' into expecting these would be fantasy genre stories. Of course the use of the word 'fantastic' is in its original sense of something that is imaginative and not real, but I would also apply it in its more modern meaning 'extraordinarily good or attractive'.To say too much abou [...]

    4. This is a charming collection of short stories, well worth the read. Like his other work, Leo McBride shows his skills in creating worlds that provide a different slant on this one, taking the reader into a world where the fantasy element seems quite at home and the most likely explanation. I liked the author notes, it is always interesting to get an insight into the creative processes behind a story. Here he explains the overall theme of time, and fits each story into place, both into the theme [...]

    5. Four easy to read short stories with a central theme that spans the generation gap. A delightful insight into the relationships of young and old, the past and the present. Each story is unique in character and setting, and the additional information provided by the author as to the reason behind each tale gave a nice, authentic touch to his relaxed and easy style.

    6. I had no expectations as I just needed to read something for my A-Z Challenge quickly but for a kindle freebie this was a pleasant surprise! Four short stories with a little twist. Nice writing style.

    7. Great quick read. Four unrelated yet equally interesting stories. I particularly liked the one with Percy, but each had an intriguing twist to share.

    8. This was a fun read. It is short stories that I enjoyed enough to want to read more. I will try to add more when I have more time.
