Sometimes there’s nothing like sitting down and reading a great collection of short stories. Normally, I tend to read anthologies – stories from a number of authors covering a number of genres and suiting a wide array of readers. But occasionally, there is an author that I love so much that it is my greatest joy to spend a few days with them in all of their weird little worlds. Or at least, that’s how I feel about Garth Nix and this collection of short stories.

Admittedly, I originally bought To Hold the Bridge to read, well, To Hold the Bridge. But, thanks to the little graph on the back (telling me what was actually in this book), I was also introduced to worlds of vampires, struggle, and well, other worlds…

Nix’s break down of these short stories into smaller sections made it all the more simpler to enjoy and read this collection. After all, it is easy to figure out which one you want to read when they have subheadings such as: Creatures of Darkness and Light; Check Your Faint Heart at the Door; A Wink and a Nod…

Like I said, this collection is a fantastic way in which to spend a few days (or in my case, weeks), and I’m actually kind of sad that it’s over…
