G. W. Thomas, RAGE m a c h i n e Magazine

Option: Everest

'a story of life, death, and virtual reality. It begins as a seemingly typical adrenaline-fueled adventure fantasy, but ends up in a much darker and more thought-provoking place. It's an excellent read, and I recommend it highly.'

Patricia White, author of A Wizard Scorned

The Rain Queen

'This tale warns against greed and disrespecting Nature. ... I wanted to stay in that world.'

Scott M. Sandridge, Tangent Online

Aliette de Bodard, Tangent Online

The Seeds of Memory

'a convincing tale ... charmingly written'

Nancy Varian Berberick, Tangent Online

Time's Change

'an intriguing time-travel story dealing with the nature of science. I enjoyed its twists, and I think you will, too.'

Visions in Midnight Blue

'reminiscent of Mercedes Lackey's work, only shorter. ... The themes and the world are also reminiscent of some of the Darkoverian themes of Marion Zimmer Bradley.'

'a superbly witty and readable sequel to Hans Christian Andersen's "The Tinder Box"'

Megan Arkenberg, Mirror Dance
