    1. Really great collection, although at times feeling a bit sappy or sentimental for my taste; I am not so interested in beauty as each of the characters in the collection, so it's tough to really connect, but the magical situations and bizarre loneliness keeps everything fresh and surprising. A bit heavy if you're looking for 'short' short stories, but his former collection, 'Crisp,' achieves those sorts of bite-size proportions with similar delivery if you're into that.


    2. Entropic is filled with beautiful short stories. Each story (or maybe most?) begins with intricate prose about relatively mundane events, which then takes a swerve towards the unusual or fantastical. Much recommended.



    3. Interesting collection of stories from NB resident and professor R.W. Gray. He creates an interesting emotional vacuum for the characters of this eclectic collection, where the common theme seems to be preoccupation with unsustainable and emotionally unrewarding fixations and longing. Not all of the stories are tremendous, but the balance of the collection is solidly written and two stories in particular are difficult to forget.


    4. Gray’s short stories are wonderfully surreal little glimpses of CanLit perfection. Gray is one of Canada’s best short story writers, bar none. His story “Blink” may be one of my all-time favourites, by any author.Read more at the Redeblog.
