    One thought on “Myth, Magic and Glitter”

    1. I think this is actually my favourite of the Project Unicorn collections so far I love that it includes a trans character which I can t recall the others doing True If By Sea is probably my favourite of the stories in it I love that Sarah Diemer treated Meloa all along as a woman and therefore falling within her mission statement of writing lesbian YA she is of course entirely right, but some people don t do that.Also, I think the mythical stories Sarah Diemer does are my favourites in general T [...]

    2. I ve been waiting for this collection since the authors posted the themes they had planned for each month of Project Unicorn which, btw, entails writing YA lesbian short stories and publishing them for free online, at Muse Rising, and is seriously awesome March s theme was the eponymous Myth, Magic, and Glitter, and as a lifetime lover of myths and legends and all things glittery I was incredibly excited to finally get my hands on this one.So far every Project Unicorn collection has been a joy t [...]

    3. Guh I continue to deeply love all the stories that Jenn and Sarah write for Project Unicorn They are all multifaceted and almost completely different with admittedly a specific theme to each of the set books , but they are so glorious I truly cannot rec this whole set of stories of LGBT girls boys enough My favorites of this set by Jenn were Flowers for Clouds which has Cherry Blossoms, gods and mortals and Even in Another Time which has Sappho in the past, and beautiful mortal girls in the pres [...]

    4. Another stellar literally collection from Sarah and Jennifer Diemer I m continually impressed by how these two writers can transform the most familiar myths into something rich and strange Even in Another Time is my favorite as a lesbian who had her own awakening reading Sappho at fifteen, this was a particularly poignant reading experience for me I m glad the heroines had a better experience than I did Also notable is True if By Sea , a moving transgender take on The Little Mermaid If you like [...]

    5. Of the six short stories of Project Unicorn, this book has to be my least favorite It centered on myths and the origins of things.However, it just felt like the writers were doing their best to fulfill prompts Like Oh man we gotta write several stories on this prompt ok what can we do It just didn t feel like it had as much heart as the stories in project unicorn number one, which i LOVED.

    6. I finally got around to starting my Read Everything Project Unicorn thing, and this was the first one I read At first, it was slightly unremarkable and the writing in the first couple or three stories, but it got a lot better as I progressed Despite the fantasy elements there was also a lot of realism, and I appreciated that A satisfying read.

    7. Best Project Unicorn installment yet Once again I m going to urge everyone to read these authors Happy queer YA is hard to come by, and this is some of the best I ve read Their takes on Sappho, Sedna, and Salome were especially inspired.
