Reviews

"Hopkinson's prose is vivid and immediate." --The Washington Post Book World
"An important new writer." --The Dallas Morning News

"Caribbean folklore informs many of the 15 stories, ranging from fabulist to mainstream, in this literary first short-fiction collection from Nebula and Hugo awards-nominee Hopkinson. Her descriptions of ordinary people finding themselves in extraordinary circumstances ring true, the result of her strong evocation of place and her ear for dialect. . . . Though marketed as science fiction, this collection should hand-sell to fans of multicultural fiction." --Publishers Weekly

"This 15-story collection is a marvelous display of Nalo Hopkinson's talents, skills and insights into the human conditions of life, especially of the fantastic realities of the Caribbean. She displays the complexities of the seven deadly sins . . . and perhaps those of the seven deadly virtues. Everything is possible in her imagination." --Science Fiction Chronicle
