This is Jodi Taylor's newest release and it's a paperback/bind up edition of all the St Mary's Chronicles short stories so far + one new one called 'The Perfect Storm'.

Mostly for the final story
My 5 stars are primarily for the last short, which takes place after the end of the 8th novel, "And the Rest Is History". It neatly capstones that superb novel--but stands all by itself, believe me--and is the file-sharing fun we've come to expect from author Taylor and...

A bit of a mislead here. This is a compendium of all the prior vignettes, with an introduction as to Jodi's writing process for each, plus the bonus short story A Perfect Storm. I can't review that one separately yet but found it fantastic, as usual with anything Jodi writes.

I bought this, not realizing it was a collection of short stories which I had already read. Ah well, it was fun to read them again.
The stories are fun because they lack the grimness and sucker punches that Taylor gives her characters in the novel. Here it's all Peterson peeing on Max and Markham...
