Zine, Sylvie Michaud, blackbirdink.ca

As one might imagine from 25 mini  stories crammed into 31 pages, some are  interesting or at least entertaining, some  are neither, and most are just okay. These  stories are the results of writing prompts  and it shows, as most of the stories in  this collection seem unfinished. A few  of them are cloyingly precious and aren’t  given the space to mature into anything  other than mundane vignettes. There  are some compelling characters and  situations sketched here, some I would  have liked to read more about, and it’s  disappointing they aren’t fleshed out  further. It would have been better for the  author to have picked the best of these  stories and expand them by one or two  pages rather than publishing this uneven  assortment of her work. (Mary Green)
