About the Author

Barbara Krasnoff was born and bred in Brooklyn, and has the accent to prove it. She has sold over 35 short stories to a variety of publications; Sabbath Wine, which appeared in Clockwork Phoenix 5, was a finalist for the 2016 Nebula Award. When not producing weird fiction, she works as Reviews Editor for The Verge and investigates what animals and objects are really thinking in her Backstories series on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (#theirbackstories). You can find her at BrooklynWriter.com or on Twitter as @BarbK.
The amazingly prolific Jane Yolen, has been called "America's Hans Christian Andersen." She is the distinguished author of over 300 books, including Fairy Tale Feasts, Jewish Fairy Tale Feasts, Owl Moon and Devil's Arithmetic. She lives on an old farm in western Massachusetts with numerous moles who do not seem to be afraid of anything. She enjoys taking walks along the river near her house and visiting people, including her editors--in fact, she wrote this book in the office of one of them. Kathryn Brown has illustrated numerous highly-acclaimed picture books for children. She lives with her husband and their daughter near Jane Yolen in western Massachusetts. She did not, however, use the moles on Jane Yolen's farm as models for this book. (They were too hard to catch.)

Reviews

"If David Mitchell plotted a speculative novel-in-stories that then Alice Munro wrote, you might get something approaching the ambition and beauty of Krasnoff's The History of Soul 2065. Krasnoff creates a world so excessively alive, both with woe and human kindness, that history can't contain them."
--Carlos Hernandez, author of Sal and Gabi Break the Universe

"Barbara Krasnoff's great gift is for manifesting the invisible: immigrants and outcasts, the queer, the bereaved, elderly, children, ghosts. And, ah! The ghosts! The ghosts in The History of Soul 2065 arrive from both the past and the future to interact, and interfere, with each other and the living. Timelines tangle, bloodlines mingle, the mundane becomes magical."
--C. S. E. Cooney, World Fantasy Award-winning author of Bone Swans: Stories

"Reading The History of Soul 2065 is like looking through a photo album - and when you touch someone's photo, you get pulled into what they were going through at the moment the photo was taken . . . The History of Soul 2065 is so many things. It's a journey through the histories and dreams of two families, it's a magical realism way of finding hope when you feel lost, it's historical fantasy, it's far future science fiction."
--Little Red Reviewer
