Suzy McKee Charnas was a native New Yorker raised and educated in Manhattan. She surfaced as an author with Walk to the End of the World (1974), a no-punches-pulled feminist SF novel and Campbell award finalist. The three further books that sprang from WALK (comprising a futurist, feminist epic about how people make history and create myth) closed in 1999 with The Conqueror's Child, a Tiptree winner (as is the series in its entirety).

Can't Find My Way Home (2022)
Gwynne Garfinkle
"Writing a really good ghost story is a lot harder than it looks. But Garfinkle pulls it off with elan and produces a wonderful story about lives unlived, for one reason or another, shifting perspectives, what (if anything) we owe our dead, and how we reflect each other, hold each other back, and provide the take-off for others' sprints into maturity. There's also some tasty detail about the lives of working actors on a soap-opera gravy train, that as a film and theater enthusiast, I found delightful."

Roadsouls (2016)
Betsy James
"If you long for a fantasy world that your senses could live in...read this book...vivid and earthy."

Binding (2013)
(Moon Wolf, book 2)
Carol Wolf
"The story moves, like its protagonist, boldly, unhampered by any emo blithering, to an unusual and satisfying conclusion. I hope there's more coming!"
