I found this book fascinating more for the peek into McKillip's development as a writer than for the stories themselves. The prose was sometimes so floral that the narrative seemed tangled and hidden. Ofttimes scenes were beautifully painted, but lacking in concrete details—as if the purpose of the story was the words themselves. Yet the scope of imagination revealed in these two tales made them worthy stories to read. Here was a mind at the beginning of its career that was unlike anything that had come before.
