Review:
These Antique Fables is a short story from January's point of view that can be purchased from Seanan McGuire's Patreon Page. She posts a short story there every month, some standalone but a lot linked to both her October Daye and Incryptid series, and you can receive them for as little as $1 each (there are other perks available for higher amounts but $1 is the minimum).

We've already met January and Li Qin but this is a chance to see how they first met and became a couple, just a little bit of luck led to love. I enjoyed seeing more of January's friendship with Elliot too and this also gives us a glimpse into January's childhood and answers some questions about what happened to her parents September and Malcolm.
