      Lucy Sussex s breadth of talent and knowledge are on display in the third of the 12 Planets anthology series In four short stories you see historical fantasy in ancient Babylon about the world s first chemist, snappy modern crime in Melbourne, a delightfully sensual tale of female sexuality and an urban fantasy playing cheekily with ideas if authorship and created worlds Each story is distinct, a gem, and you have to marvel at the intelligence and imagination behind four such different stories.

      An excerpt from my full review at The Conversationalist Another really solid addition to the Twelve Planets collection by Twelfth Planet Press This book wasn t my favourite, but Sussex has been on my to read list in my head for quite a while so I m pleased to finally read some of her work Overall I enjoyed this collection, but I didn t fall into it the way I did with both Nightsiders and Love and Romanpunk I do think this is a great introduction to Sussex s work and her talent across different g [...]

      Thief of Lives is the third collection in Twelfth Planet Press s Twelve Planets series, each one collecting short fiction from a female Australian writer Unlike the previous two volumes in the series, which collected interlinked short stories and novellas, Thief of Lives includes four unrelated works, which also vary in terms of genre.The collection opens with Alchemy, set in ancient Babylon This story tells of Tapputi, a perfumer who has attracted the interest of a spirit, Azuzel Azuzel is able [...]

    4. Barbara says:

      A selection of four short stories two fantasies, a crime story, and a story of sexual discovery Lucy Sussex is a capable writer and I have been enjoying this Twelfth Planet Press series, but this collection just fell a little flat for me The first story, a demon story set in ancient Babylon, was interesting enough The demon or angel is a powerful, but not all powerful, ambiguous character, and the target of its attentions is a clever and entrepeneurial woman This was, for me, the strongest of th [...]

      Thief of Lives is the third book in the Twelve Planets series, released by Twelfth Planet Press, which showcase the talent of female Australian authors There is now to be a thirteenth in the series, but that s a review for another time The brief given to authors was to write 4 short stories of up to 40,000 words in total The stories could be separate, discrete narratives or linked through character, setting or theme.This collection contains four unconnected stories, one historical fantasy, one c [...]

    7. Alexandra says:

      This is the delightfully packaged third book in the Twelve Planets series, from Twelfth Planet Press I should mention that I am friends with the editor publisher, Alisa Krasnostein, and a passing acquaintance of the author, Lucy Sussex But don t worry I would have no trouble saying I didn t like it much, if that were the caseThe first story is, for me, the blazing outstanding story of the four Called Alchemy, it is set in Babylon, a city as evocative, perhaps, as it is foreign We are presented w [...]

    8. S.B. Wright says:

      Thief of Lives is the third collection in the Twelve Planets Series and continues Twelfth Planet Press run of quality product In contrast to Sue Isle s mosaic in Nightsiders, Lucy Sussex offers the reader 4 widely divergent stories.The StoriesAlchemy Set in ancient Babylon, a god or demon attempts to manipulate a perfumer.The Fountain of Justice A purely crime fiction piece about the legal system and whether or not it delivers.The Subject of O College students, the female orgasm, and who creates [...]

    10. Tsana Dolichva says:

      Thief of Lives, by Lucy Sussex is part of Twelfth Planet Press s Twelve Planets collection.Thief of Lives is a collection of four short stories without common setting I have to admit, this collection was closer to literary realism than I usually read Thematically, women are central to all the stories in a variety of different ways Karen Joy Fowler eloquently explains what Sussex writes about in the introduction Fantasy, history, crime The relationship of women to men The relationship of women to [...]

    11. Christopher says:

      Thief of Lives is a fine, though not particularly lengthy, collection of short stories I particularly enjoyed the first and final entries, both of which play in interesting ways with existing myths The first story is the standout of the collection, delivering a compelling narrative set in a lesser used historical setting I feel like most stories of this type would be located in Pharaonic Egypt Following a demi god like spirit as it quests to earn the acceptance of the one human with the capacity [...]

    12. Anna Hepworth says:

      four short pieces two that appealed, two mediocre tending towards downright boring However, the two that I liked pulled the collection up in ratings or, possibly accurately, the two mediocre pieces pulled what would have been a five star book down Alchemy is a subtle weaving of science and historical fiction a beautiful portrait of early chemistry, as applied to perfumery Thief of Lives is a twisted, rather meta, tale of layered stories, playing with the ideas of who is the author, and who is t [...]

    13. Ash says:

      The most eclectic of the Twelve Planets I ve read so far Worth the price of admission just for the final, title story, which is a deliciously meta meditation on what art steals from us, and where its boundaries lie.The second and third stories about justice and orgasms, respectively are also enjoyable, impressive in their different styles and themes I had a particularly good time with the first story too, Alchemy, as I ve found I ve a particular liking for tales of immortal beings Especially of [...]

    14. Liz Barr says:

      Thief of Lives is a slightly disjointed short story collection I liked the stories individually, but they didn t work for me together I was amused to realise that Lucy Sussex is also the editor of She s Fantastical , an anthology of feminist SF that I read in my early teens I distinctly remember finishing that book and thinking, Wow, this feminism business is complicated, and also really weird I should go back and give it another look sometime.

    15. Elanor Matton-Johnson says:

      This is the first time I ve read Lucy Sussex, and it s an excellent and varied collection I think Alchemy was my favourite story, with the Babylonian setting and the sensibleness of the perfumier The title story intrigues me, though I may need to read it again for a deeper understanding.

    16. Rivqa says:

      Loved the humour in this, great mix of short stories and vignettes.

    17. Jane says:

      Startlingly diverse Lucy Sussex can take on any genre and twist it into strange spots where it s never been before.

    18. Thoraiya says:

      Enviable powers of observation and a sly sense of humour

    19. Anthony Panegyres says:

      Sussex impresses here with her broad repertoire I especially enjoyed the opening tale.
