"The stories in The Monkey's Wedding are collected here for the very first time and include six never before published, as well as two previously published under the pseudonym Nicholas Dee. Here you'll find the story of a village for sale . . . or is the village itself the story? There's an English vicar who declares on his deathbed that he might have lived an entirely different life. After his death, a large, black, argumentative cat makes an appearance. . . . This hugely imaginative collection includes introductions by Aiken as well as by her daughter, Lizza Aiken." -- from

Wild collection! A few stories sputter out or just plain go off the rails, but most of quite good. Most are light-heated, but some are harsher and darker. My favorites were "A Mermaid Too Many," "Honeymaroon," "Second Thoughts," and, of course, "The Monkey's Wedding."
