    Full disclosure: I received a copy of this from tor.com for free, which is always a good price. Perhaps it made me like the book more. (Though I doubt it.) This is a masterful collection of short, speculative fiction. Masterful. And I do mean short. Many of these stories are less t...

    Like most short story collections, this had a mix of great stories and boring stories. The great ones made it worth it and I skipped the others. ...

    A fantastic set of stories. I especially enjoyed the 'Teleporting Couch Universe' trio. I'd love to read more set in that one! ...

    I enjoyed Suzanne Church?s Elements: A Collection of Speculative Fiction yet; I haven?t quite finished the book for I know when I read those last few stories, my journey will end. Elements by Suzanne Church is a delightful read, its short stories cover the gamut of speculative f...

    And this title was just right. I had read a bevy of Suzanne Church?s stories before and became a bigger and bigger fan with each one. When I heard the title of her collection would be ?Elements? I humphed. It seemed too simple to me. Her stories cover horror, fantasy, science fic...

    As with all anthologies this one has a few ups and downs. Honourable mention goes to: The Tear Closet and Muffy and the Belfrey. ...

    Suzanne creates such believable characters and circumstances in all of these short stories with real skill. Several stories would easily become full length novels. ...

    I've always enjoyed being a member of a book discussion group just because of this kind of book. That is a book that I enjoyed and discovering and author I didn't know that I wouldn't have been likely to have found on my own. This is a collection of some twenty stories. Most of them st...

    I generally don't enjoy short story books so this was a pleasant surprise. I have already recommended it to a friend and look forward to Church's future works. ...

    Excellent collection of short stories. Very imaginative and unique too. Which is always welcome. Stories range from self aware personal items, indoctrinated gene mutation that turns us into rats and cockroaches, plus ravenous soul sucking ghosts afraid of facing the after-after...

    This debut collection of short speculative fiction shows the incredible versatility of an emerging Canadian author. Suzanne Church uses a sparse, conversational style to engage empathy from the reader, and delivers a wide range of innovation across the speculative genres?from zany, r...

    I really enjoyed this short story collection. I've definitely realized that I react much more favorably to genre short stories than realistic fiction short stories, a more pronounced preference than the same comparison for novels. Imaginative and generally satisfying. ...

    In her short story collection Elements: A Collection of Speculative Fiction Suzanne Church treks across stars, across time, beyond the human experience, into the magical, the mystical, the dark, infusing pages with otherworldly imagination that invite us to be fellow travellers into th...

    As a horror fan, this collection of short stories satisfies the appetite while leaving the reader something to ponder! Highly recommended! If you want something to keep you up at night, this is it! ...

    This is the best anthology I've read in a very long time. Maybe ever. Haunting and hopefully and even full of whimsy and dark humour. "The Tear Closet" is quite possibly the best short story I've ever read. Church's unique voice is gripping and often wry and teasing, providing brillian...
