About the Author:

Emily June Street lives in Marin County, CA with a husband and two mutts. When not hanging upside down in her Pilates studio or madly editing a fantasy saga, she can be found cycling or swinging on a flying trapeze.

Review:

"Tense, thoughtful, and truly thrilling The Velocipede Races is a marvelous fantasy of manners and machinery." Cherie Priest, bestselling author of the Clockwork Century novels

"This novel made me want to burn my corset. Emmy half ingenue and half Olympian athlete is trapped in a staid and hidebound culture. And when she starts breaking all the rules, it’s wicked fun to be along for the ride. There was definitely a sense of eating something so good that I could not stop eating it." Benjamin Parzybok, Sherwood Nation

"The action builds slowly as the reader is acquainted with the details of Street's carefully created society and the mechanics of cycling. Then the story bursts into a final lap with dramatic suspense. You don't have to be a fan of fantasy or sf to enjoy these exuberant characters and their intriguing times." Catherine Lantz, Univ. of Illinois at Chicago Lib., Library Journal (starred review)
