If you were one of the Invited, one of the relative few among mortals given a chance to experience a brush with the otherworldly in the mysterious Night Bazaar, would you go? Would you even know if you’d been given the choice? This book is an achievement for editor Hart — eleven stories, each independent of the others, woven together such that none feel out of place (though a couple stories, namely “The Least Detailed Plans of a Great and Complicated Apparatus” and “Denkraam”, never set foot in New York). Some emphasize mythology and folklore, others a creeping dread, and still others a full launch into the supernatural. Possession; hauntings; gifts and curses, with the line between them sometimes blurred and sometimes horrifyingly stark. Upon finishing each story I never knew quite what to expect from the next, yet there was never any doubt as to how it connected with the Bazaar. The book offers its stories in a quiet rhythm, moving from one atmosphere to another while building on the strangeness of the Bazaar. Starting with “Weekly Pass”, we’re shown a seemingly innocent subway ride become quickly life-altering for the solitary protagonist. With “Full Moon Shift” the book moves toward dark, lurking horror, igniting an atmosphere of low-key dread that intensifies in “Obey” (one of my favorites, with a PoV character intending to do research for her urban fantasy novel). The book culminates magnificently with a foray into a world beyond the Bazaar in “The Kindly Ones”. I read these stories slowly, digesting each paragraph, and yet now that I’m finished I’m still hungry for more. It speaks to the talents of the writers and the deft touch of the editor that my experience of reading the book both fulfills and only whets my desire for more stories of this strange marketplace. A dark fantasy anthology that I’m incredibly glad I read.
