From the Editor, Marty Halpern, Golden Gryphon Press Sep 21, 2001
As the editor of Kristine Kathryn Rusch's first short fiction collection, STORIES FOR AN ENCHANTED AFTERNOON, I'm a bit too biased to actually rate this book. But I did want all of Kris's readers to know that one of the stories contained in this collection, "Millennium Babies," has recently won the 2001 Hugo Award for Best Novelette. In fact, you might be interested to know that the title for this collection was originally MILLENNIUM BABIES: A SHORT STORY COLLECTION! This was the title Kris chose when she submitted the manuscript to Golden Gryphon Press. However, our distributor was hesitant to accept a book with "Millennium" in the title because so many other such books had already been published and the "Millennium" was now, of course, passé. So we agreed to make a title change. If only we had known . . .

Whether set in a grim future, or fantastical realm, Rusch has an eye for detail that lends her characters a voice that's nearly poetic in quality, and stories filled with a touch of horror, humor, caution, wonder, and awe. Stories that enchant anytime... Gary S. Potter Author/Poet.
