We rated this book:


Everyone experiences sorrow at some point in their lives. We can’t escape it, especially with the pandemic of the last couple of years. We all felt sad about losing a loved one or a beloved pet. Many have dealt with their sickness or have watched others go through one. People battle against traumas every day. There are many ways people deal with sadness. Some people try to escape, while others tackle sorrow head-on. Some people create their own fantasy worlds to express what they are going through.

The Alchemy of Sorrow: A Fantasy & Sci-fi Anthology of Grief and Hope is a collection of short stories dealing with tough subjects. Curated by Virginia McClain and edited by Sarah Chom, this collection contains thirteen tales of woe. Contributing authors include K.S. Villoso, Intisar Khanani, Clayton Snyder, and many more bestselling and award-winning authors. Anthologist Virginia McClain even has an entry. While dealing with grief, many of the stories give the reader a ray of hope. This project, at times, seems a bit cathartic. From confronting dragons, witches, or monsters, The Alchemy of Sorrow may help fight one’s inner demons.
