    One thought on “The Commuter”

    1. An enjoyable short story set in a reality where our world and the faerie world are connected due to some earlier event. When the protagonist's daughter's class goes on field trip to the Unseelie Embassy, her error in judgement has consequences and The protagonist heads into faerie to try to retrieve her. The story gets better as it progresses.

    2. Okay, technically not a Hugo-nominee as the author turned down the nomination. But I was still curious. It's fun, silly, and I hope he revisits the Commuter's world as it feel like there's quite a bit of mileage there for other stories.

    3. GoodHad fun and enjoyed these cute stories. It was a good change of pace, thanks for the laughs and good hearted story
