This was a mixed bag of short fiction—the bits I liked I loved a lot, and the bits I didn't like I generally REALLY didn't like. The stand-out by far was “The Year Without Sunshine” by Naomi Kritzer. “A Piece of the Continent” by Marissa Lingen was also quite enjoyable. I read the nonfiction articles this time, too, and really liked the article by Amanda-Rae Prescott on Doctor Who regenerating into a Black man.

My opinion on Turning the storm is sort of similar to that of Fires of the faithful. It has a great heroine, it passes the Bechdel test, and it has a nice story. I did find myself drifting away on occasion. I'm not sure if I can describe what it was, but I was a bit impatient with it at times. I think it would have benefited from a bit more depth regarding the characters. It pains me a little to say it, since I did like the characters. But with the novelty of the story wearing off a bit, I guess I started noticing a certain simplicity in the description of the characters and a bit in the story itself as well. That doesn't mean it wasn't pleasant to read, it was. And if I'm correct this is only the second book of this author, so I have high hopes for her. She had good ideas: I like the male/female equality, I like the way the main characters, Eliana, slowly figures out she likes women and the understated way in which this is described, and I like how she mixes the ideological with the practical when it comes to religion. This is the only fantasy book I can remember that shows a christian-like religion in a positive light, which is already interesting by itself. Of course, the differences she has incorporated (the most important one God being female) are interesting to see as well. What I really like is that a few of the main characters only vaguely believe in either religion, despite the fact that one of their friends is a fervent believer, and that both religions are corrupted at some point by people lusting for power. Even though the fighting parties are mostly divided by religion, it shows people of either religion fighting on both sides, it shows that there are good people and bad people on both sides, and in the end, it shows that neither side is impervious to corruption.

All in all, I would give this book 3.5 stars, because I think the execution could be improved, but given the subject matters, and the original ideas the author incorporates in her book, I'm rounding it of to four.

A very good collection of short stories! There was a lot of interesting themes and concepts that stayed with you and made you think. What muddied the waters for me a bit was that the 2-3 "meh stories" in here were very meh indeed.
I loved the titular story about an AI with a thing for cat pictures ;).
The other ones I really liked were:
"The Golem" - set in Prague in 1941...
"In the Witch's Garden" - a sci-fi/fantasy retelling of the "Snow Queen"
"Cleanout" - three sisters are cleaning out their parents' house in order to sell it. But where did the parents REALLY come from?
"Artifice" - when one of your friends decides to get a robot boyfriend...
"The Good Son" - a faery falls in love with a mortal and bewitches a childless couple to act as his parents to make courting easier.
"Isabella's Garden" - when you have a two-year-old with magical powers that MAKE THINGS GROW
"Bits" - a sex toy company needs to begin to cater to human/alien couples (very very silly and funny)
"Honest Man" - about an immortal conman ;)
"So Much Cooking" - food blogger stuck at home during a horrid flu epidemic. (Kind of prescient...)
