Review: Letters to Tiptree

I reviewed the anthology Letters to Tiptree, edited by Alexandra Pierce and Alisa Krasnostein, for Strange Horizons. 2015 is the centennary of Tiptree's birth, and the anthology is well worth a read.

Review: Oracle

I reviewed Michelle West's latest epic fantasy novel Oracle in this week's issue of Strange Horizons. The pull quote says something about why I think it's important to talk about these books, but I wouldn't say so unless I also thought they were excellent.

Review: Ôoku vols. 8-12

I reviewed the latest five volumes of Yoshinaga Fumi's epic alternate history manga Ôoku at Strange Horizons. I really recommend this manga to anyone interested in feminist speculative fiction: it's great.

Review: The Tropic of Serpents and Voyage of the Basilisk

I was too distracted by the tweets coming out of Sasquan to mention this in a timely fashion, but: my review of Marie Brennan's The Tropic of Serpents and Voyage of the Basilisk is up at Strange Horizons. I enjoyed the first book, but these two are even better, and I'm looking forward to the next one very much.

Review: Stranger and Hostage

My review of Stranger and Hostage by Rachel Manija Brown and Sherwood Smith is up at Strange Horizons. In a word, I think these books are a great first half of a series.

Review: The Highroad Trilogy

My review of The Highroad Trilogy (A Path of Stars, Revolution's Shore, The Price of Ransom) by Kate Elliott is up at SF Mistressworks.

I recently discovered this blog via Abigail Nussbaum's Hugo nomination posts; results of that process aside, the blog is a trove of reviews of SF by women, and I've quite enjoyed poking through its archives.

And…showtime!

My review of Clariel by Garth Nix is now live at Strange Horizons.

I've been a committed Nix fan for 20 years, but after nearly 12 years with no Old Kingdom books, this one was worth the wait.
