Reviews

"A beautifully written and thrillingly ambitious alternate history . . . It's a tribute to Shawl's powerful writing that her intricate, politically and racially charged imaginary world seems as believable--sometimes more believable--than the one we inhabit."--The Washington Post

"Nisi Shawl's Everfair is a book with gorgeous sweep, spanning years and continents, loves and hates, histories and fantasies. Set against the big canvas of King Leopold's horrific rule in the Congo, her engaging, passionate characters struggle to make the right choices in a world that is almost ours, but not quite. Everfair is sometimes sad, often luminous, and always original. A wonderful achievement."--Karen Joy Fowler

"From the exotic, baroque complexities of 'At the Huts of Ajala' to the stark, folktale purity of 'The Beads of Ku, ' these fourteen superbly written stories will weave around you a ring of dark, dark magic."--Ursula K. Le Guin on Filter House
