Industry Reviews

“An alchemical mix of Borges, Raymond Chandler and Buffy the Vampire Slayer..” — Salon.com (Best of the Year)

“A delightful collection.” — Cleveland Plain Dealer

“My favorite fantasy writer.” — Alan Cheuse, All Things Considered

"Link's stories defy explanation, or at least, brief summary, instead working on the plane between dream and cognitive dissonance. They are true to themselves: witty, beautiful, funny, and startling." — Rain Taxi "Link uses the nonsensical to illuminate truth, blurring the distinctions between the mundane and the fantastic to tease out the underlying meanings of modern life." — Booklist
