About the Author:

Elisabeth Vonarburg is considered one of Canada's most accomplished Science Fiction writers.

More recently, she has been actively involved in the speculative fiction community as a translator, convention organizer, literary editor, and writer.

Review:

"Vonarburg’s prose is sensual and measured, richly descriptive...present attractive worlds that are at once familiar and exotic..." - Paul de Fillipo, Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine -

"Glorious, lush novel, very dreamlike indeed." - Nalo Hopkinson, author of Brown Girl in the Ring -

"... sinuous, highly sensuous prose, with a leisurely, attention to sensory wonders...a work of impressive subtlety and rigor ..." - George Feeley, Washington Post -
