Tales from the Folly: A Rivers of London Short Story Collection (Rivers of London #1.5, 1.6, 4.6, 5.65, 6.5)Tales from the Folly: A Rivers of London Short Story Collection by Ben Aaronovitch
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A good collection of short stories from the Rivers of London universe, half of which are not from Peter Grant’s perspective. I read the whole collection over two days, quite rapid progress in the current climate! Each story is easy to read in a short sitting, and from there page turn onto the next. As a long-standing follower of the Peter Grant stories I loved the way these expanded the universe out into new spaces, or filled in gaps.

Tales from the Folly

I’d read a couple of these before on the web, or possibly tucked into another book. However they were just as enjoyable the second time round. Also most of the stories were new to me, even though I’ve read all the graphic novels, novellas and main series novels. I’m a sucker for the world building in Rivers of London, and all of these stories teased out a little bit more of that. It was like cat nip to me, and I read the whole set in less than 24 hours. (In context the previous book I read took me 40 days!)

Definitely recommend this to anyone who likes Rivers of London, or even just urban fantasy set in a contemporary UK.
