I have only read All the Time We've Left to Spend by Alyssa Wong from this anthology. I want to read more of these stories, but haven't yet.

Brief reviews as I read the stories:

All the Time We've Left to Spend by Alyssa Wong:
Interesting short story about how we deal with grief and loss and memory. ( )

This anthology is a collection of robot and fey stories and the last story in the collection took the title of the anthology to heart and ran with it. I really enjoyed most of the short stories. As with most collections there were always a few that I didn’t like as much but I’m sure that the ones I liked the most will not be other readers favorites. The stories were balanced pretty well between both teams and I don’t think one really came out as a better collection than the other. Several writers I read stuff from for the first time and now I want to give them a read in a larger format.

It’s actually not so much about the conflict between future and fantasy as it is alternating robot and fairy stories (except for the one at the back which combines them). Which makes me wonder why this collection exists. It’s not a matter of taste–I like robot stories and I like fairy stories–but what’s the point of combining them? Seem like two things that would be better on their own if they’re not gonna play together.

Most of the stories are pretty good. This is one of the better short story collections I’ve read, and I don’t like ’em all that much. I even found one or two new authors to investigate (which is what a good short fiction collection should do–act like a sampler for other authors). To my surprise I was not impressed with Scalzi’s contribution. But I was with Jim C. Hines’s. I expected those two to be reversed. I think I need to amend my earlier stance on Hines for a corollary about his short fiction. ( )

This was a fun collection, I don’t tend to review individual stories in collections such as this one unless something really stands out as great or horrible and overall I found most of them solid and enjoyable with only one or two slight duds. The strongest standouts for me were, Build Me a Wonderland by Seannan McGuire and Murder Under the Moon by Tim Pratt. The weakest was Ironheart by Jonathan Maberry, I just couldn’t get into that one at all, the rest kind of fell in between with mostly positive or at least interesting and worth my time.
I liked the concept of fairies vs. robots and wish more of the stories actually HAD fairies vs. robots, but I can see how that could have gotten old very fast, I enjoyed having a nice mix of both fantasy and science fiction, and I really enjoyed the brief explanation each author gave for which side they chose.
A favorite minor detail I loved was how the corners of each story had a decorative boarder that matched which faction the story belonged to, with vines for the fairies and circuitry for robots. Sometimes it’s the little things.
An overall solid and fun collection that I really enjoyed and would recommend without hesitation, I would like to see more collections like this. ( )

4 out of 5 stars on Looking Glass Reads.

This book was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Anthologies are some of my favorite books to read, and Robots vs. Fairies may very well be my favorite anthology to date. Edited by Dominik Parisien and Navah Wolfe, this anthology is divided into stories featuring either robots or fairies, and sometimes both of them together. Every story is different in tone. No two share the same world.

Who is better? There isn’t a definitive winner. Robots. Fairies. It’s up to the reader to decide who wins.

Robots vs. Fairies is by far one of the best anthologies I’ve ever read. The vast majority of stories included are extremely strong. Even those that are somehow tied to larger, more expansive worlds or stories by the same authors still hold their own.

Which side won for me? I always thought I was on team fairy, but I think Team Robot won out for me in the end. This is due in no small part to the story “All The Time We’ve Left To Spend” by Alyssa Wong, which now ranks among my favorite short stories of all time. This is a story of robots and humans, of regret, and of memories. It’s serious in nature, dipping its toes into the realm of uncanny valley, and I cannot recommend it enough. Seriously, if you read no other story in this book, read this one.

This is hardly the only stand out story. There are plenty that are absolutely wonderful, ranging in tone from those that are dark or serious to the humorous. John Scalzi’s “Three Robots Experience Objects Left Behind From The Era Of Humans For The First Time”, a tale of three robots trying to understand humans and their activities in a post-human world. Or you could read a story of libraries with living books and vindictive fairy queens in Tim Pratt’s “Murmured Under The Moon”.

A few stories also fit in – or could very easily fit in – an author’s larger body of works. The most obvious is, perhaps, Delilah S. Dawson’s story “Ostentation of Peacocks” which features Nettie Lonesome in The Shadow series, which is written under the pen name Lila Bowen. Annalee Newitz’s story “The Blue Fairy’s Manifesto” is a tale of two robots discussing their autonomy, something that fits quite neatly into the world spun in her novel Autonomous, and sure to please fans of that book.

Of course, I didn’t love every story. A few were a little weaker. The finer details are beginning to slip from my mind. But they never made me want to put down the book. I never felt bored. And I am glad I read them.

Really, there is something in here for everyone. Fairies who are dark and sinister. Robots who question their place in the universe. There are stories that draw on familiar tales in some – Peter Pan, Pinocchio, and more. There are stories that fall neatly into an author’s larger body of work.

If you like fairies, if you like robots, if you like stories that will stay with you long after reading them, then Robots vs. Fairies is the book for you. I cannot recommend this book enough. It is home to some of my new favorite short fiction stories. I’ve found new authors (new to me, at least) whose other works I plan on reading. This is a book whose praises I cannot sing enough, and a book that I hope everyone will read. ( )
