Robots vs. Fairies Reviews

    Jan 03, 2018

    ARC provided by Saga Press in exchange for an honest review. ?We knew this day would come. We tried to warn the others. It was obvious either the sharp rate of our technological advancement would lead to the robot singularity claiming lordship over all, or that the fairies wou...

    Conclusion? Fairies are better. Let me explain. Not to offend our possible future robot overlords, but robots lack the gorgeous imagery or the delightful villainy of fairies. Come on, what's a story without some morally grey leads who delight in their evil nature? But it's not just ab...

    When I first picked up Robots vs. Fairies, I almost expected the stories to be about literal wars between the two, so I was very surprised to find that it was actually a collection of alternating stories from authors who had chosen "team robot" or "team fairy". It was such a fun and un...

    A brilliant anthology from some of the biggest names in speculative fiction at the moment. It's at times funny, often introspective and thought-provoking with a clever framing mechanism of each author talking about whether they're Team Fairy or Team Robot and why. Highly recommended. ...

    I was pleasantly surprised by this anthology and enjoyed all the stories (some more than others) apart from one. The theme of putting Robots against Fairies works very well and even more so because some of the authors pushed the boundaries between these two to the point that they altog...

    What a wonderful collection of stories with a fun premise! Some adventure, some sadness, some humour, and a few really touching moments. ...

    The mathematically calculated rating is 3.52, but my heart says 4 stars because the anthology was AWESOME! Strong beginning and great variety of different stories! I love the concept of the anthology and that it gave an opportunity for many amazing authors create these amazing stori...

    This was a great collection of short stories on what turned out to be a great theme! Something for everyone here - highly recommended. ...

    Robots vs. Fairies I read selectively here, picking stories others here have liked, plus other favorite writers. Mixed bag, but the Pratt and McGuire stories are *wonderful*. TOC:http://www.isfdb.org/cgi-bin/pl.cgi?6... ?Build Me a Wonderland? by Seanan McGuire. I can?t...

    ?We always knew this day would come. We tried to warn the others. It was obvious either the sharp rate of our technological advancement would lead to the robot singularity claiming lordship over all, or that the fairies would finally grow tired of our reckless destruction of the natu...

    A perfect coffee break book for those who appreciate either robots or fairy tales. I could read 1, sometimes 2, short stories per break. My particular favourites were Build Me a Wonderland by Seanan McGuire, Murmured Under the Moon by Tim Pratt, and A Fall Counts Anywhere by Cathery...

    As far as the title and cover goes, this is, without a doubt, the coolest book I've ever read. The content, however, is a mixed bag. These are eighteen stories that I read over the course of four days. Very few of them were good, a lot of them were incredibly confusing and a couple we...

    Build Me a Wonderland, by Seanan McGuire: ???? Quality Time, by Ken Liu: ??? Murmured Under the Moon, by Tim Pratt: ?? The Blue Fairy?s Manifesto, by Annalee Newitz: ??? Bread and Milk and Salt, by Sarah Gailey: ????? Ironheart, by Jonathan Mayb...

    My insane love for anthologies can be easily explained by the fact that I love the short story form, and by the fact that I love various accounts on a certain topic, in this case fairies. Robots aren't that interesting to me, but fairies are my obsession. In their true form, Fae are em...

    After The Starlit Wood, I had high expectations for any anthology edited by Dominik Parisien and Navah Wolfe. Thankfully, Robots vs. Fairies lived up to those expectations. In this anthology, authors are asked whether they?re Team Robot or Team Fairy. Each writes a story involving...

    Okay, so the concept is pretty dumb?why should fairies and robots be fighting at all? Why make writers declare their allegiance to either "Team Robot" or "Team Fairy?" And the Introduction to Robots Vs. Fairies, by editors Dominik Parisien and Navah Wolfe, just doubles down on the ti...

    A themed anthology of 18 new stories from a group of fantastic authors, each of whom chooses a side?Team Robots or Team Fairies. Ultimately, it?s a throw down between the science fiction and fantasy genres, using the symbols of robots and fairies, respectively. The introduction gre...

    Scalzi. Gailey. McGuire. No, it's not my dream author dinner party, it's three of the greatest speculative fiction writers alive today, and they're all in one amazing book with a ton of other great writers. Admittedly, I skipped a few stories that just didn't grab me, but that's the ...

    3/5 Date Reviewed: 23 December 2017 This Review was first posted on Keep Reading Forward. If you want to see more, check out our other locations as well as here. ARC provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I have never read anthology before,...

    I will admit that I have a bias towards fairies when comparing them to robots. I mean. They're fairies. C'mon. The fae. The Seelie court. Goblins and pixies and brownies, oh my! But, I did try to go into this trial with an open mind. And I have to say, the fairies won. The best stor...

    The great thing about anthologies is that they offer the reader a chance to discover a new author to explore more deeply... and Robots vs. Fairies achieves that. The big names may be the ones that grab your eye... Valente is here telling a wonderfully oddball story of a pro wrestling t...

    Robots vs. Fairies is my first reading disappointment of 2018. I loved Dominik Parisien and Navah Wolfe?s first anthology, 2016?s The Starlit Wood, so I was very hyped for this one when it was announced. Unfortunately, Robots vs. Fairies is a bit of a sophomore slump for the editin...

    4.25/5 Una gran antología con un nivel medio altísimo. Solo un par de relatos no me han gustado. Me falta ESE relato excelente por el que poder decir: «aunque sólo sea por este relato, leete el libro» pero lo he disfrutado mucho; desde el prologo, que es estupendo y muy diverti...

    Anthologies with super specific themes rarely work. Several of the stories seemed nearly identical. Who can blame the authors when they were working with such precise criteria? ...

    I have been loving this anthology spree I've been on. If you haven't seen it over the holidays, I've been reviewing anthologies about Asian SFF, caregivers, powerful women, and this stunning anthology to end my spree. If you love robots, OR fairies, you need this anthology. I rarely ke...

    I received a Digital Review Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The premise of this anthology is declared in its title. Packed full of work by authors I love, we have short stories and novelette length works by Seanan McGuire, Catherynne Valente, Max Gladstone, Mary...

    ?Robots Vs. Fairies? edited by Dominik Parisien & Navah Wolfe [4/5] An anthology about Robots and Fairies fighting each other? Not so much. Most of the stories deal with one of the two only. So the title of this anthology might be a bit misleading. Each of the short storie...

    Rather than a bunch of stories pitting the title characters against each other, most of the stories in this anthology are either Team Fairy or Team Robot. I haven?t read most of these authors before, and since I usually read anthologies to find new authors, I?m pretty pleased with ...

    A perfect coffee break book for those who appreciate either robots or fairy tales. I could read 1, sometimes 2, short stories per break. My particular favourites were Build Me a Wonderland by Seanan McGuire, Murmured Under the Moon by Tim Pratt, and A Fall Counts Anywhere by Cathery...

    As far as the title and cover goes, this is, without a doubt, the coolest book I've ever read. The content, however, is a mixed bag. These are eighteen stories that I read over the course of four days. Very few of them were good, a lot of them were incredibly confusing and a couple we...

    My insane love for anthologies can be easily explained by the fact that I love the short story form, and by the fact that I love various accounts on a certain topic, in this case fairies. Robots aren't that interesting to me, but fairies are my obsession. In their true form, Fae are em...

    Okay, so the concept is pretty dumb?why should fairies and robots be fighting at all? Why make writers declare their allegiance to either "Team Robot" or "Team Fairy?" And the Introduction to Robots Vs. Fairies, by editors Dominik Parisien and Navah Wolfe, just doubles down on the ti...

    Scalzi. Gailey. McGuire. No, it's not my dream author dinner party, it's three of the greatest speculative fiction writers alive today, and they're all in one amazing book with a ton of other great writers. Admittedly, I skipped a few stories that just didn't grab me, but that's the ...

    ?Robots Vs. Fairies? edited by Dominik Parisien & Navah Wolfe [4/5] An anthology about Robots and Fairies fighting each other? Not so much. Most of the stories deal with one of the two only. So the title of this anthology might be a bit misleading. Each of the short storie...

    Rather than a bunch of stories pitting the title characters against each other, most of the stories in this anthology are either Team Fairy or Team Robot. I haven?t read most of these authors before, and since I usually read anthologies to find new authors, I?m pretty pleased with ...

    Conclusion? Fairies are better. Let me explain. Not to offend our possible future robot overlords, but robots lack the gorgeous imagery or the delightful villainy of fairies. Come on, what's a story without some morally grey leads who delight in their evil nature? But it's not just ab...

    When I first picked up Robots vs. Fairies, I almost expected the stories to be about literal wars between the two, so I was very surprised to find that it was actually a collection of alternating stories from authors who had chosen "team robot" or "team fairy". It was such a fun and un...

    A brilliant anthology from some of the biggest names in speculative fiction at the moment. It's at times funny, often introspective and thought-provoking with a clever framing mechanism of each author talking about whether they're Team Fairy or Team Robot and why. Highly recommended. ...

    I was pleasantly surprised by this anthology and enjoyed all the stories (some more than others) apart from one. The theme of putting Robots against Fairies works very well and even more so because some of the authors pushed the boundaries between these two to the point that they altog...

    What a wonderful collection of stories with a fun premise! Some adventure, some sadness, some humour, and a few really touching moments. ...

    The mathematically calculated rating is 3.52, but my heart says 4 stars because the anthology was AWESOME! Strong beginning and great variety of different stories! I love the concept of the anthology and that it gave an opportunity for many amazing authors create these amazing stori...

    A perfect coffee break book for those who appreciate either robots or fairy tales. I could read 1, sometimes 2, short stories per break. My particular favourites were Build Me a Wonderland by Seanan McGuire, Murmured Under the Moon by Tim Pratt, and A Fall Counts Anywhere by Cathery...

    As far as the title and cover goes, this is, without a doubt, the coolest book I've ever read. The content, however, is a mixed bag. These are eighteen stories that I read over the course of four days. Very few of them were good, a lot of them were incredibly confusing and a couple we...

    My insane love for anthologies can be easily explained by the fact that I love the short story form, and by the fact that I love various accounts on a certain topic, in this case fairies. Robots aren't that interesting to me, but fairies are my obsession. In their true form, Fae are em...

    After The Starlit Wood, I had high expectations for any anthology edited by Dominik Parisien and Navah Wolfe. Thankfully, Robots vs. Fairies lived up to those expectations. In this anthology, authors are asked whether they?re Team Robot or Team Fairy. Each writes a story involving...

    Okay, so the concept is pretty dumb?why should fairies and robots be fighting at all? Why make writers declare their allegiance to either "Team Robot" or "Team Fairy?" And the Introduction to Robots Vs. Fairies, by editors Dominik Parisien and Navah Wolfe, just doubles down on the ti...

    I will admit that I have a bias towards fairies when comparing them to robots. I mean. They're fairies. C'mon. The fae. The Seelie court. Goblins and pixies and brownies, oh my! But, I did try to go into this trial with an open mind. And I have to say, the fairies won. The best stor...

    The great thing about anthologies is that they offer the reader a chance to discover a new author to explore more deeply... and Robots vs. Fairies achieves that. The big names may be the ones that grab your eye... Valente is here telling a wonderfully oddball story of a pro wrestling t...

    Robots vs. Fairies is my first reading disappointment of 2018. I loved Dominik Parisien and Navah Wolfe?s first anthology, 2016?s The Starlit Wood, so I was very hyped for this one when it was announced. Unfortunately, Robots vs. Fairies is a bit of a sophomore slump for the editin...

    4.25/5 Una gran antología con un nivel medio altísimo. Solo un par de relatos no me han gustado. Me falta ESE relato excelente por el que poder decir: «aunque sólo sea por este relato, leete el libro» pero lo he disfrutado mucho; desde el prologo, que es estupendo y muy diverti...

    Anthologies with super specific themes rarely work. Several of the stories seemed nearly identical. Who can blame the authors when they were working with such precise criteria? ...

    I have been loving this anthology spree I've been on. If you haven't seen it over the holidays, I've been reviewing anthologies about Asian SFF, caregivers, powerful women, and this stunning anthology to end my spree. If you love robots, OR fairies, you need this anthology. I rarely ke...

    ?Robots Vs. Fairies? edited by Dominik Parisien & Navah Wolfe [4/5] An anthology about Robots and Fairies fighting each other? Not so much. Most of the stories deal with one of the two only. So the title of this anthology might be a bit misleading. Each of the short storie...

    Rather than a bunch of stories pitting the title characters against each other, most of the stories in this anthology are either Team Fairy or Team Robot. I haven?t read most of these authors before, and since I usually read anthologies to find new authors, I?m pretty pleased with ...

    Review to come.4.5 stars Dominik Parisien and Navah Wolfe edited and collected one of my favorite anthologies to date, The Starlit Wood so when I saw they were releasing another anthology together I just couldn?t wait ? especially once I saw the title: Robots vs Fairies. I thoug...

    I received this copy from a Goodreads sponsored giveaway. I decided to write a review (a line or few) for each story in this collection. Overall it was very enjoyable. There are some gems I know I'll return to (because already I can't stop thinking about them) and some that I've alread...

    A perfect coffee break book for those who appreciate either robots or fairy tales. I could read 1, sometimes 2, short stories per break. My particular favourites were Build Me a Wonderland by Seanan McGuire, Murmured Under the Moon by Tim Pratt, and A Fall Counts Anywhere by Cathery...

    As far as the title and cover goes, this is, without a doubt, the coolest book I've ever read. The content, however, is a mixed bag. These are eighteen stories that I read over the course of four days. Very few of them were good, a lot of them were incredibly confusing and a couple we...

    Conclusion? Fairies are better. Let me explain. Not to offend our possible future robot overlords, but robots lack the gorgeous imagery or the delightful villainy of fairies. Come on, what's a story without some morally grey leads who delight in their evil nature? But it's not just ab...

    When I first picked up Robots vs. Fairies, I almost expected the stories to be about literal wars between the two, so I was very surprised to find that it was actually a collection of alternating stories from authors who had chosen "team robot" or "team fairy". It was such a fun and un...

    A brilliant anthology from some of the biggest names in speculative fiction at the moment. It's at times funny, often introspective and thought-provoking with a clever framing mechanism of each author talking about whether they're Team Fairy or Team Robot and why. Highly recommended. ...

    I was pleasantly surprised by this anthology and enjoyed all the stories (some more than others) apart from one. The theme of putting Robots against Fairies works very well and even more so because some of the authors pushed the boundaries between these two to the point that they altog...

    What a wonderful collection of stories with a fun premise! Some adventure, some sadness, some humour, and a few really touching moments. ...

    The mathematically calculated rating is 3.52, but my heart says 4 stars because the anthology was AWESOME! Strong beginning and great variety of different stories! I love the concept of the anthology and that it gave an opportunity for many amazing authors create these amazing stori...

    My insane love for anthologies can be easily explained by the fact that I love the short story form, and by the fact that I love various accounts on a certain topic, in this case fairies. Robots aren't that interesting to me, but fairies are my obsession. In their true form, Fae are em...

    Okay, so the concept is pretty dumb?why should fairies and robots be fighting at all? Why make writers declare their allegiance to either "Team Robot" or "Team Fairy?" And the Introduction to Robots Vs. Fairies, by editors Dominik Parisien and Navah Wolfe, just doubles down on the ti...

    Scalzi. Gailey. McGuire. No, it's not my dream author dinner party, it's three of the greatest speculative fiction writers alive today, and they're all in one amazing book with a ton of other great writers. Admittedly, I skipped a few stories that just didn't grab me, but that's the ...

    I will admit that I have a bias towards fairies when comparing them to robots. I mean. They're fairies. C'mon. The fae. The Seelie court. Goblins and pixies and brownies, oh my! But, I did try to go into this trial with an open mind. And I have to say, the fairies won. The best stor...

    Robots vs. Fairies is my first reading disappointment of 2018. I loved Dominik Parisien and Navah Wolfe?s first anthology, 2016?s The Starlit Wood, so I was very hyped for this one when it was announced. Unfortunately, Robots vs. Fairies is a bit of a sophomore slump for the editin...
