Spring's Arcana (2023)
(Dead God's Heart, book 1)
Lilith Saintcrow
"An ice-cold contemporary reboot of Baba Yaga--some killer grannies are more lethal than others: pray she isn't yours!"

Battle of the Linguist Mages (2022)
Scotto Moore
"It reads like Snow Crash had a dance-off with Gideon the Ninth, in a world where language isn't a virus from outer space, it's a goddamn alien invasion."

Robot Artists and Black Swans (2021)
Bruce Sterling
"Bruce Sterling’s Italian short fiction is like an Asti Spumante from the vineyard where futurism was first fermented."
