I really lucked out when I pick this up at the library. I could not put it down, read it straight through when I got home. It has everything - comedy, sci-fi. . . Even if something mysterious that I want to find out more about.
Taylor is an excellent writer. She has great characters, who are well-developed and interesting and her plots are super. The history is just an added bonus. But when I say history, don't get the idea that this is any kind of a dry old historical novel oh, it is anything but! ( )

Short stories of St. Mary's. Minimal fatalities, though there are references to one here and there and some awkward moments. ( )

The Long and Short of It collects all short stories from St. Mary's up until A Perfect Storm. Having read all of the previous stories (they are reviewed under their titles), I was curious for A Perfect Storm, which has since been released on it's own as well.

I've always liked these short stories and would recommend them to fans of the series that haven't started on them yet but sticked to the normal books. While not necessary to follow the main story, it really adds something to the series! ( )

Enjoyed the short stories. They filled in some of the holes from the books. I would read them again in future which is quite a compliment. I particularly enjoyed the Shakespeare story. ( )

A splendid array of short stories that serve as wonderful vignettes for Jodi Taylor's excellent series. All excellent and some real gems; A child is Born, My Name is Markham and the Very First Damned Thing ( )
