Reviews

"An impressive collection of stories unafraid to explore bleak topics like death and despondency." --Kirkus Reviews
"Reading Velocities is a literary dégustation of dark fiction with speculative elements, rich narrative full of text that's cunning, loaded with sentiment. You want to go back to a story, and you do, to recapture the moment, and you find it, still there, waiting, just for you. You can't speak to this astounding collection without lingering on its author. Read Koja like you're nibbling truffles, each bite a road to metamorphosis." --Eugen Bacon, Aurealis Magazine
"A modern genius of weird and dark fiction, Kathe Koja once again proves with Velocities that she's adept at plunging the reader into strange and unexpected places. One of my favorite collections of the year." --Jeff VanderMeer, NYT-bestselling author of Dead Astronauts, Borne and the Southern Reach trilogy
"In Velocities, Kathe Koja, delivers thirteen short stories that will have you turning the pages at high-speed." --Curiosity Bought the Book
"Short sharp speedballs of strange. Incantatory, funny, human - ranging from urban dread, to country nightmares, to bite-sized fables so baroque and twisted, you can taste the corruption on your tongue and in your dreams." --J.S. Breukelaar, author of Collision: Stories, Aletheia, and American Monster
"Velocities is prime Kathe Koja, with all that that entails: supercharged, dense as hell, oblique, glorious. Every story is a lesson in how to write faster, more intensely, from angles other people never seem to think of: industrial poetry, word mosaics like insect eyes, multifoliate as the insides of flowers, every image a scattered, burrowing seed, spreading narrative like a disease. I've loved her work since long before I ever aspired to produce anything like it--in fact, I'm still not sure anyone else is capable of doing what she does, of coming close, let alone hitting the mark. But damn, it's equally so much fun to admire the result as it is to even vaguely try." --Gemma Files, award-winning author of Spectral Evidence
"Velocities is immersive, hypnotic, yet clear-eyed and accessible. These are dangerous, artful tales of mounting tension, impossible to put down. Koja's fiction has never seemed more alive or daring." --Douglas Clegg, award-winning author of Neverland and The Faces
