Sirens are beautiful, dangerous, and musical, whether they come from the sea or the sky. Greek sirens were described as part-bird, part-woman, and Roman sirens more like mermaids, but both had a voice that could captivate and destroy the strongest man. The pages of this book contain the stories of the Sirens of old, but also allow for modern re-imaginings, plucking the sirens out of their natural elements and placing them at a high school football game, or in wartime London, or even into outer space. Featuring stories by Kelly Sandoval, Amanda Kespohl, L.S. Johnson, Pat Flewwelling, Gabriel F. Cuellar, Randall G. Arnold, Michael Leonberger, V. F. LeSann, Tamsin Showbrook, Simon Kewin, Cat McDonald, Sandra Wickham, K.T. Ivanrest, Adam L. Bealby, Eliza Chan, and Tabitha Lord, these siren songs will both exemplify and defy your expectations.… (more)

Still a quality collection, but I didn't quite enjoy it as much as Equus. ( )

MY THOUGHTS:

I received this book in exchange for my honest review. I seldom read a collection of stories, but I found myself ordering this book for the works of the above listed authors because I’ve heard about several of them.

This anthology is filled with wonder, magic, and magical creatures. Parrish never disappoints. The authors and their work are exquisitely different from each other and fill the pages with unforgettable characters. You’ll love spending every minute with them. You want enthralling menagerie, pick up this book. You will delve into the world of mythology, demi-gods, mermaids, obsession, lust, violence, golems, hunger, violence, kindness, human/siren interactions, artificial intelligence, feedings, seahorses, whales, science fiction, Atlantis, Goddesses, cruise ships, space, courage, battles, traps, dueling fishermen, sleazy businessmen, faithful wives and not so faithful husbands… You’ll be wanting more of these characters and possibly wanting to read a fully fleshed out novel involving some of the premises in the anthology. The bottom line, you’ll want more! ( )

A little hard to get into - but a good collection of stories none the less. Like with all collections, some short stories were better than others, but taken as a whole, the book is well worth a read. ( )
