Into a Land of Enchantment

Every Heart a Doorway — Seanan McGuire
Wayward Children, book 1

2016’s Nebula and Hugo-winning Every Heart a Doorway is the first volume in Seanan McGuire’s Wayward Children series.

Children through the ages have stepped through doors to other lands. Some, like Nancy, return — only to find themselves rejected by families unable to accept what their children have become. A lucky few, like Nancy, find their way to Eleanor West’s Home for Wayward Children.

Velveteen vs James’ expectations

Velveteen vs the Junior Super Patriots — Seanan McGuire
Velveteen, book 1

Last week I had a very annoying evening. I wanted to read in a very specific genre—superhero fiction—but every book that looked interesting was either not available in a format I wanted to purchase … or might have existed in that format but was effectively concealed from me by Kobo’s grotesquely ineffective search function.

Eventually, I discovered that Seanan McGuire’s site offered a selection of her Velveteen stories. So I read those.

I believe the stories on her site are those also found within Velveteen vs. The Junior Super Patriots, so I am going to pretend I went out and acquired a copy of that.
