Terry Bisson recommends
thumb
Monkey Around (2021)
Jadie Jang
"A glittering shapeshifter of a novel that takes you where the modern city and post-modern magic meet."
thumb
Time and Robbery (2012)
Rebecca Ore
"Surprising, puzzling, and delighting us at every turn."
thumb
The Fox Woman (2000)
(Fox Woman, book 1)
Kij Johnson
"Kij Johnson reminds us that the magic (and strength) of Fantasy is seeing ourselves in the mirror of the Other. Never has that mirror shimmered more seductively. Look."
thumb
Iron Tears (1992)
R A Lafferty
"I love this book ... Lafferty is our unheralded American Garcia Marquez ... a word-slinger totally out of sync with today's slim-fast reductive rhertoric; a sly old buzzard who conjured up fables as luris as Bible stories and tells them in a tornado of words wild enough to drive wood splinters through a windshield."
