Reviews:
"Highly recommended,especially for public library YA audiobook collections."
    — Children's Bookwatch January, 2014
 
"These stories, ranging from humorous, wondrous, and poignant, to frightening and downright creepy, are sure to be a hit with listeners"
    — School Library Journal April 28, 2011
 
"These short stories are intriguing and mysterious, full of vampires, angels, brownies and werewolves that children will enjoy. The stories challenge beliefs; teach the importance of standing up for the weak and of speaking out against wrong doing even if the consequences are severe."
    — SoundCommentary March, 2011
 
"With characters ranging from brownies to vampires, forest-dwelling sentinels, and fairies, this is a well-paced and enjoyable recording. Bruce Coville himself narrates several stories, and excellent choices were made for other prominent voices."

Praise for the print version of Oddly Enough:
"In a concluding note, Coville explains that he never thought of himself as a short story writer. Thank goodness writer-editor Jane Yolen persisted in "thumping him on the head (metaphorically speaking)" so that he would keep writing short fiction. Only three of the nine stories in this collection are first-time publications, but if they are any indication, Coville is really becoming proficient in the genre: "The Language of Blood" is an eerie tale about a ritual of drinking blood; the hilarious "Clean as a Whistle" features a messy girl who inherits a family brownie with a penchant for neatness; and "A Blaze of Glory" concerns a boy's learning about elves and promises from his dying grandmother. An angel, unicorns, ghosts, werewolves, and executioners populate the other equally satisfying and unsettling stories."
