    • The nitty gritty A short but thought provoking and dark retelling of the story of Moses.Many of you are familiar with Serial Box, the company that has put serial storytelling back on the map, with recent stories like Bookburners, Tremontaine and The Witch Who Came in from the Cold They offer short weekly episodes written by groups of writers, which are akin to episodic television One of their latest launches is a collaboration with Fireside Fiction Company, a tale by Sarah Gailey called The Fish [...]


    • What This novella was beautifully written, but I was deeply confused by it What were the gods What was the time period and setting I d be interested to know those things.


    • NOTE You can read this story here for free firesidefiction book the I read this yesterday, and can t stop thinking about it Fisher of Bones tells the story of a small group of people who are looking for their Promised Land The viewpoint character is their Prophetess, recently appointed by the previous Prophet her father right before he dies She has to keep the fractious group united until they reach the Promised Land, and the job proves difficult.I loved this story for several reasons The first [...]


    • The writer did a great job in telling a complex story in a compact and simple manner It s hard to portray evolving emotions, clashes of faith, inner war between duty self and a whole cast of people Gailey did a really wonderful job in making all of that clear without giving away the whole This is a story that will draw you in from the start or you will not be interested at all It is a rich story but only as vivid, stark, warm and horrifying as you make it to be Most of the details, extra nuances [...]


    • This is so much heartache and anguish in such a small package As is typical for Gailey, she s presented a well wrought and emotionally wrenching tale that packs far story than its length suggests Haunting, desperate, and highly recommended.


    • A compelling read from beginning to end Gailey is one of those talented writers who can convey great imagery and depth in a few words, and that really worked for such a short series The conclusion felt somewhat abrupt, but the I ve thought about those final lines, the I like their haunting implications The story left me with a lot of questions, but I don t view that as being a bad thing While I would enjoy a follow up, I d be equally satisfied if this was the end.


    • The Fisher of Bones is a very quick read, but there is a lot of substance within it At times I wished that there was development of the story, but as I think back on it, there was always enough to get my mind invested If you are open to it, the novella touches on themes of religion and destiny in profound ways The ending was abrupt but powerful in its simplicity.


    • Competently written, but not heartily Fisher of Bones is a practical and functional novel, but lacks depth of character or heart When I realized that we weren t going to see character development or conflict, I continued reading hoping the conclusion was worth the read It was an interesting twist that I should have seen coming , but not worth the ride Not my cup of tea or preferred style.



    • This is an easy read in terms of time, but not in terms of content Gailey s writing is very accessible and she creates a compelling world Hell of an ending too


    • Sarah Gailey s talent level is such that I am sure she will be writing something truly Great note the capital G within the next ten years For now she s working at the level of WOW that is REALLY GOOD , and this novella is definitely that It s something of a gender flipped retelling of the Exodus, although the tone is not so much Biblical as post apocalyptic Gailey doesn t really tell us a whole lot about who the people in the book are and why they are traveling to a promised land , but we really [...]


    • This was a riveting novella with a shocking ending, albeit one that left you hanging, quite a bit I wanted to just keep reading, really


    • I bought this book mostly because Gailey wrote it, though I did find the plot interesting We re given a glimpse of a world where I assume things have gone pretty bad, if a group of people have been willing to travel for 30 something years to reach a Promised Land There s not a ton of world building, but I filled in the gaps on my own bleak, barren, other people are dangerous and I m ok with that Because this thing is less than 100 pages, there s not a lot of detail anywhere, honestly, but Gailey [...]




    • 4.25 starsI m still not sure how I feel about The Fisher of Bones All I know is that Sarah Gailey is one heck of a writer I felt the same way after finishing River of Teeth I mean, what the heck is this Feral hippos The Fisher of Bones, sadly, is missing the feral hippos, but it does have weird bits of bones and Gods Whispers to harry the protagonist instead.When the Prophet dies, his powers are passed on to his daughter, Fisher Fisher doesn t feel that she s ready to lead her people, who have b [...]


    • The best kind of stories boil your brain If this is a truism, then Sarah Gailey s FISHER OF BONES is all the best kinds of angry, rolling water because when I finished it tonight I gasped as if burned It trudged and scraped towards a conclusion that was heavy with journey and purpose And that ending Wow I ve picked it up and put it down, re reading the end three additional times because, well, what a story.As a serialized short, I understand the limits of the space to play in, but I would have l [...]


    • I m still working through this story I ve read the last chapter twice now, and the I think about it, the I really enjoy this I think I need to read this a few times to get all the pieces connected.A short read that you will spend hours thinking about.


    • What an endingOh my gods this was so devastatingly good Sarah Gailey succinctly built a world that is immediately relatable And then


    • I listened to the free audio version of this story on Serial Box, narrated by Xe Sands I really liked it It s creepy throughout, with some truly disturbing moments It s such a short story, yet the main character is so easy to relate to, without seeming like she belongs in our world or any other specific time place view spoiler My guess is that it s meant to be set in the far future, following an ecological apocalypse, and after our current society has completely collapsed, to the point where no [...]



    • Wow.What a fascinating story And gorgeously written This is one I m going to want to read probably several times That ending holy cats.


    • I just did not get this story at all and the serial format did not help as it was difficult to keep the story in mind over such a long reading period.
