Reviews

PRAISE FOR THE CASS NEARY SERIES
"Nerve-jangling and addictive.... With Cass--relentless in her dangerous curiosity, her ruthless art of survival--Hand has created an anti-hero for the ages. We'd follow her anywhere, into any glittery abyss, and do."--Megan Abbott, author of Dare Me
"I love Elizabeth Hand's Cass Neary novels -- they're tough-minded, beautifully written, and unique. One of the best series out there."--Jeff VanderMeer, author of Dead Astronauts
"Fiercely frightening yet hauntingly beautiful, with a startling heroine you'll never forget.... I've long been a fan of Elizabeth Hand's amazing books, and once again she proves why she is truly a writer's writer, her prose so glowing it makes all the rest of us jealous."--Tess Gerritsen, author of the Rizzoli & Isles series
"Elizabeth Hand's Cass Neary novels, rightly praised for their icy tension and remarkable darkness, are threaded, like the best of punk in any medium, on a bloodied yet admirably stubborn humanism."
--William Gibson, author of Neuromancer
"Intense and atmospheric.... An inventive brew of postpunk attitude and dark mystery. Elizabeth Hand writes with craftsmanship and passion."--George Pelecanos
"The ancient manuscript at the center of The Book of Lamps and Banners is as kaleidoscopic, dark, and mysterious as Hand's amateur sleuth. This novel is a jaw-punch, written with a snarling grace. Cass Neary--the aging punk photographer living within darkest edges of our broken civilization-is my hero. And so is Liz Hand."--Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and The Cabin at the End of the World
"With each new book, Elizabeth Hand's great creation Cass Neary grows more complex, and fascinating. She's tough, smart, f*cked up. And I love her. If you've been following her since Generation Loss, you already know all this. If you haven't, read this book."--Ellen Datlow, winner of the Horror Writers' Association and World Fantasy Life Achievement Awards
