Felix Gilman recommends
Never Knew Another (2011)
(Dogsland Trilogy, book 1)
J M McDermott
"Never Knew Another is a weird but perfectly formed koan of identity, memory, loss and loneliness. Dark, moving and unique."
A Country of Ghosts (2014)
Margaret Killjoy
"This is a fierce, intelligent, hopeful book - a fantasy (of sorts) of unusual seriousness, humanity, and wit."
