Errantry: Strange Stories - Elizabeth Hand

Elizabeth Hand is one of my top ten authors so I was eager to read this short story collection.  In Errantry, her prose is lyrical and her settings as fey as ever but somehow most of these stories felt unfinished to me.  What impressed me here were singular scenes instead of the stories.  The title story Errantry demonstrates this best with its gripping, heartfelt tale of magical renewal in the middle of everyday chaos.
