kaffyr: The TARDIS says hello (Free for Use of the Public)
[personal profile] kaffyr
Hello, and happy Monday! I'm[livejournal.com profile] kaffyr, and I'll be providing you recommendations for the coming week. All of the stories I've collected this time around are short, and in a couple of cases they are very short. But they're examples of stories that either have made me think, or have provided me with a great deal of enjoyment - and sometimes both. If you read any of these, it would be wonderful if you could let the author know you've read by leaving a comment!

Recced because: Crossovers are always a revelation to me, largely because they show me the talent of a writer. In fact, they generally stand and fall on that talent. The broader the stylistic chasm between worlds, the tougher the challenge for an author. [livejournal.com profile] scarlett_key handled this extremely challenging crossover, between Doctor Who and the NBC sitcom “Frasier,” really well, something  I wouldn’t have thought possible, especially given its setting, during the horrific Year That Wasn’t. It’s wonderful (in a somber, Year That Wasn't way) to see my favorite show, and one that I liked a great deal, come together so believably.

A taste:
