"The scope of Shawl's imagination will leave the reader in awe, and their attention to detail is unparalleled. Kinning is a beautiful, hopeful, stunning evolution of one of the most unique alternate histories ever conceived."--Booklist, STARRED review

"Kinning is a rare sequel that says something entirely new, while deepening the central themes of the original."--Locus

"In this ambitious outing, Shawl broadens the scope of their alternate history of the early 20th century . . . . Readers are in capable hands with Shawl, who has clearly done the research to create this expansive and well-crafted world."--Publishers Weekly

Praise for Nisi Shawl:

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

"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, [their] 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 on Everfair

"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
