Crossed Genres Magazine 2.0 Issue 18: Music Reviews
None of the stories in this issue really caught my fancy, though they were all very readable. My main complaint is that they all somewhat failed for me on the endings. I also feel that they were trying to do too much in the limited space of a short story; at least some of the reasons they failed in the end was that they felt rushed to that end.Still, I liked the wide variety of stories and worlds depicted here, and I love and applaud Crossed Genres' commitment to bringing genre stories that are not just white/male/cisgender to the party.
I really enjoyed all of these stories, with "A Song of Sixpence" and "The Reclamation" being my favorites. "The Reclamation" was especially close to perfect, but all three stories made wonderful use of the theme. 5/5
3.5/5 stars.Faubourg by Carlyn Worthy was my favorite. I want more, more, and more from this author in this universe. I loved the idea of guardians and I adored how New Orleans and music were woven through every breath of this tale. The other two stories were good, too. A great issue.
