Leap day means on more day to get my February short fiction rec post up and I need it because I haven't been reading that much short fiction this month. After doing a ton of short fiction reading for my favorates of 2015 post I decided to take a break form short fiction reading which ended up stretching well into February. But I've gotten back into reading things in the last week or so. Here are a few that I liked.

"The Desert Glassmaker and the Jeweler of Berevyar" by Rose Lemberg Another birdverse story, told in letters between craftspeople. I really liked the descriptions of the crafts and of the environments the characters live in.

"The Tomato Thief" by Ursula Vernon This story made me really want a tomato, and there won't be good ones here for months. Also I loved the bits about trains and the logistics of foodstuff. Anyways this story is sequel to "Jackalope Wives" but would read fine on its own. Grandma Harken is a lot of fun to read about.

I've also been reading A.M. Dellamonica's stories set in the same world as Child of a Hidden Sea. There are three so far, all prequels to the novel. I love getting to learn more about the world and the characters. The stories are in chronological order "Among the Silvering Herd", "The Ugly Woman of Castello di Putti" and "The Glass Galago"

How has your short fiction reading been going lately?
