    1. An artfully crafted short that showcases the potential this author's future stories have to offer. [4.5 stars:]Set in China, this fantasy follows the journey of a young man sidetracked by a magical immortal, a fox spirit. The characters are engaging, the action is well-paced, and the plot has just enough twists to keep things interesting without bunching up the reader's knickers.I was smiling, but disappointed, when I reached the end. I wanted there to be more, simply because I had fun reading C [...]

    2. I picked up this book because I'd recently been very impressed with a story by this author in an anthology and I was interested in reading more of her writing.

    3. Finally a long story by Kate Cotoner. Kate caught my eye with "Enslaved", and since then we've been discussing history and writing and life, and I recruited her for "Echoes of the Future", so we're writer friends.

Well, I'm the first person to say "this sucks" to a friend. They do the same for me. "Thunder" is a novella set in Ancient China. I always [...]

    4. A very enjoyable and evocative story set in ancient China. I will probably have to read again to catch all the nuances and grasp some of the explanations fully. The justice-is-served Happy Ending was very satisfying and might leave room for some follow-up on how Jin's plans work out.
