    Has anyone read any of the Tales of Blue Rose short stories?

    Just curious to see what people thought of the stories.

    I am currently putting money aside for the City of Aldis book+pdf and was thinking of getting the short stories as well.

    Thanks!

    I read "Of Shadow and Light" and really enjoyed it, but I like stories about queer women. Still, it was a good story regardless, and I wanted to see more with the protagonists.

    I've read all of them, and found them delightful, although not being as familiar with the canon as I'd like, a bit more exposition would have been nice.

    I read "The Cutpurse with his Trousers Down" - a really accomplished, funny story with some well-done slapstick elements and a few nods towards Jack Vance, I'd wager ... I can really recommend that one, it certainly has the "romance" element you would expect, and it's really fun how the narrator manages to look like a total jerk, but still earns some sympathy ...

    I also read parts of the "Shadowtide" prologue from "Offerings", but didn't get into it. To be honest, it felt like it needed another editing pass - on the first page alone, a lot of stuff feels redundant, like we're constantly told that the protagonist "feels that something is like something else", when it is already totally clear that his feelings are described. I guess I'll still get the novel and hope that they did some more work on it.
