About the Author

TINA CONNOLLY lives with her family in Portland, Oregon, in a house that came with a dragon in the basement and blackberry vines in the attic. Her stories have appeared all over, including in Strange Horizons, Lightspeed, and Beneath Ceaseless Skies. She is a frequent reader for Podcastle, and narrates the Parsec-winning flash fiction podcast Toasted Cake. In the summer she works as a face painter, which means a glitter-filled house is an occupational hazard.

Reviews

"This is an astonishing book: an evocative re-imagination of Jane Eyre that concerns itself with beauty, love, and social upheaval. This lyrical and utterly marvelous debut is one of the standout books of the year." --RT Book Reviews, 4 1/2 Stars, Top Pick! on Ironskin

"Connolly has created a complex and well-drawn world here, and the story is indeed an original and imaginative take on the gothic-fiction tradition. An intriguing and ambitious fantasy tale." --Kirkus Reviews on Ironskin

"All the romance, mystery, and horror that a good gothic story needs." --Portland Monthly on Ironskin

"Jane is ferocious and splendid; the hero is tormented and tragic. Tina Connolly has crafted a steampunk Beauty and the Beast tale, beautifully and cleverly reversed. Don't miss this debut." --Ann Aguirre, national bestselling author of Enclave, on Ironskin

"A lyrical, beautifully crafted debut. A haunting exploration of the true price one must pay for magic, beauty, and love, Ironskin will stay with me for a long time to come." --M.K. Hobson, author of The Native Star, on Ironskin

"Clever and romantic at the same time--no mean feat. A magical and entertaining waltz across the fairy forests and dark moors just a sideways step or two from Haworth Parsonage." --Ian R. MacLeod, author of Wake Up and Dream, on Ironskin
