Whether you're thirteen or thirty, or past the age when a lady likes to tell, it's an enduring pleasure to enter an ice cream shop and contemplate what to select from the variety of flavours. Some may stick to their tried and true preference; some may pick and choose among established favourites; and some may dare to taste a strange new offering. (Licorice pistachio, anyone?) Whatever a patron's choice, odds are they'll leave the shop with a smile on their face and a satisfied palate. Assorted Flavours offers up a similarly diverse bill of fare, with stories that range from the whimsical "Flea" and the poignant "Grandmother's Cup," to the suspenseful "Nine Minutes" and bittersweet "Lost and Found." Love is the silken thread woven through all these stories, as one woman picks up the pieces of a shattered heart, another gets her comeuppance after an ill-advised wager, and yet another risks all in an uncertain future where a nation's only hope resides in the courage and tenacity of a few. What would you do if you suddenly had an immense and inexplicable power to change the world? Or if you encountered a friendly vampire with a distinct family resemblance and a penchant for matchmaking? Enter the world of Assorted Flavours, and encounter a rich assortment of characters thrown into circumstances where love is often the only lifeline. Make your selection, and savour your choice. Whatever your flavour, satisfaction is assured.
