Mandatory Reading

Picked up this little nugget last week, and it has not disappointed me yet:

For those of you who may be uninitiated, Susanna Clarke wrote Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, which, along with Michael Chabon's The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, is quite possibly the best book I've read in the past ten years or so. This little collection of short stories is a good entrance into the world and writing style of the 600-plus page world of Strangeites and Norrellites. Highly recommended.
