As a fantasy author, I can truthfully say that Davis Ashura is one of my favorite fantasy authors. I'm so glad I discovered this series. SFA is a collection of short stories that give greater insight and depth into the world of Arisa and many characters you might not get as much face time as you would like in the full length novels. Each of the 4 stories delivers comedy, intrigue, action, or just plain good thought-provoking prose. I both listened to and read these collection. Nick Pohdel continues to be a perfect match as a voice for this content. If you're a fan of the Castes and the OutCastes, Stories From Arisa is a must have! You'll find yourself wanting to go back and re-read the series to see where all these stories fit in to the overarching plot.
Generally I don't like reviews of short stories that say they are too short. Seriously, what do you expect? But I have to make an exception here because these stories are too short, even by short story standards.
Most of them are so short that they lack depth, particularly the one featuring Rector Bryce. I wish Ashura had fleshed out one or two stories even a little, rather than including 4 tiny ones. They had promise, and I like the idea of learning a little more about Arisa. My favorite of the 4 was the one about the baels, which did show some depth despite its length.
