Another Perfect Review

My friend, Gail Roberts, has just now forwarded me the text of a starred review (this is very good) from Library Journal, which I thought I'd share with you. Leaving off the plot synopsis, here's what the reviewer had to say:

“In his long-awaited sequel to the convention-shattering Iron Dragon’s Daughter, Swanwick continues to turn traditional ideas of Faerie life upside down while remaining true to ancient Celtic Faerie lore. This masterfully written expansion of an iconoclastic vision belongs in all libraries of all sizes.”

Now if only the readers will like the book as much as the critics seem to!

The reviewer, incidentally, is Jackie Cassada. Reviewers get little enough credit in this world, I should at least acknowledge them when they make me happy.

Aargh! I was in my local big box bookseller (Chapters, because I'm in Canada) and your book wasn't there! It was only with difficulty that I avoided turning into a big green monster and destroying the SF display.

I guess I'll have to look elsewhere.
