Fresh Fiction Review

The Lady in Glass and Other Stories
Anne Bishop

Reviewed by Make Kay
Posted February 24, 2024


THE LADY IN GLASS is a complete collection of shorter works of fantasy written by Anne Bishop. I’ve come across a number of these shorter works scattered throughout the years, usually the result of a lot of concerted hard work and searching. How fabulous to have them all collated and laid out for my reading delectation!!



I am a raving Anne Bishop fan! Her Others series is one of my favorite paranormal series with romantic elements. I confess that the short story I was looking forward to the most in this book is the new “Home for the Howlidays,” which is a delightful holiday-themed return to the world of Blood Prophet Meg Corbyn and the shapeshifter Simon Wolfgard from The Others. But oh my stars, I was so rewarded with many other stories in this collection!



I think my favorite story here is a standalone called “Friends and Corpses,” a murder mystery with some great comedic elements and corpses that have some unexpected qualities. I do hope she writes more in this fun world where the dead don’t die right away. This one kept me up well past my bedtime because I couldn’t put it down.



Bishop has such a gift for deftly drawing the reader into her fantastical worlds, and there is something to delight readers of many preferences. Fairy tales, Landscapes of Ephemera, and Realms of the Blood all appear here. The tough part for the reader will be how to choose which delicious tale to dive into first.

Learn more about The Lady in Glass and Other Stories


A magical collection of stories new and old spanning across all of Anne Bishop’s most beloved fantasy worlds.

Here, together for the first time, the shorter works of New York Times bestselling fantasy author Anne Bishop are included in one dazzling volume.

A master of bringing fantasy worlds to life, this collection showcases Bishop’s impressive range, from rarities of her earliest writing to the Realms of the Blood, from darker fairytale retellings to the Landscapes of Ephemera, and from standalone stories of space exploration and fantastical creatures to the contemporary fantasy terrain of the World of the Others.

Includes previously published and unpublished tales, as well as two brand-new stories, written especially for this collection: “Friends and Corpses,” a murder mystery in which the corpse has some decidedly unusual qualities, and “Home for the Howlidays,” a heartwarming return to the Blood Prophet Meg Corbyn and the shapeshifting Simon Wolfgard from The Others.
