Reviews

One of the most accomplished of contemporary science fiction writers - The New York Times Book ReviewHer worlds have a magic sheen . . . she moulds them into dimensions we can only just sense. She is unique. She is legend. - The TimesA wonderfully mordant analyst of human weakness. The gems in this impressive collection have the same power to disconcert as her best novels.On the strength of The Wind's Twelve Quarters, I would not hesitate to say that the short story is the appropriate medium for her, and one in which few contemporary writers . . . can equal her' - New Scientist
