«Wonderfully odd and original [and] very scary indeed.»

«Intoxicating. These stories will come alive, put on zoot suits, and wrestle you to the ground. They want you and you will be theirs.»

«Kelly Link is the literary descendant of Jorge Luis Borges and Franz Kafka.»

«brimming with singular observations and arresting takes on veryday lives, characters and situations...it's a rollercoaster read»

* Books for Keeps *

«Link's stories play in a place few writers go, a netherworld between literature and fantasy, Alice Munro and JK Rowling.»

* Time *

«Has plenty to tangle the imagination and leaves some endings tantalisingly hanging in the dark air.»

* Daily Mail *

«Against a backdrop of recognisable Americana, anything might happen, and usually does.»

* The Observer *

«<p>Funny, moving, tender, brave and dangerous. She is unique, and should be declared a national <br />treasure, and possibly surrounded at all times by a cordon of armed marines.</p>»

Kelly Link is the author of two previous collections, Stranger Things Happen and Magic for Beginners. Her stories have won three Nebula awards, a Hugo and a World Fantasy Award. She was born in Miami, Florida, and once won a free trip around the world by answering the question, 'Why do you want to go around the world?' ('Because you can't go through it.')

Link lives in Northampton, Massachusetts, where she and her husband, Gavin J. Grant, run Small Beer Press and play ping-pong. In 1996 they started the occasional zine Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet.
