A Handful of Pearls & Other Stories

(Barnes & Noble | Chapters | Smashwords | Goodreads)

Finalist for Best Indie Fantasy/Paranormal, 2011 RT Reviewer's Choice Awards

"…this collection contains a genuinely lyrical, well-imagined, and complex assemblage of tales. It is the most compelling ever read by this reviewer.""   —Victoria Frerich, RT Book Reviews

"Bernobich's lush prose focuses on scent, touch, and world building…it's clear she's a writer to watch.""   —Publishers Weekly

"Lyrical, touching and imaginative short fiction of the highest calibre… A Handful of Pearls & Other Stories stands out by its wonderful prose. If it has a theme, it is about strong people who are in a less than privileged position—mostly women in male dominated societies, but not only—it is also about regrets and (sometimes) second chances, with sense of wonder and great characters; the occasional lighter touches work well too."   —Fantasy Book Critic

"In this collection of short stories, veteran sf author Bernobich delivers nine imaginative tales…These vivid tales can't be pigeonholed or labeled, comprising an oddly exceptional read."   —Booklist
