Sunyi is a mixed-race autistic writer who was born in America, grew up in East Asia, and now resides in England. She lives in a noisy little house on a quiet little street, with far too many books and probably too many children. Some of her short fiction has been published in Flash Fiction Online, Sub-Q Interactive, Andromeda Spaceways, and Aurealis.

Prior to writing, she studied literature and linguistics to Masters level, with a specialty in sociolinguistics. However, her first and keenest love is for speculative fiction, which includes science fiction and fantasy in their near-infinite variety. In particular, she is drawn to stories which blur genre lines, and borrow heavily from the literary side.

Sunyi is represented by Bookends Literary

I have enormous respect for Claire North's writing. She has fascinating ideas, beautiful prose, poignant characterisations, a lively yet literary style, and keen observations on society/humanity.

However, I didn't love this novel as I hoped I would.

A cautious but thorough endorsement

I had to consider for quite awhile what rating i wanted to give this novel. The fact I had to think about it is, of course, its own sort of endorsement.

Let's start with some context. I am generally dubious of liter

Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
"I read this book earlier this year and it remains my favorite published book I've read in recent memory. I'm a big fan of a slower, literary pace, diving deep into the characters and viewing the world through their eyes. Though this is written in..." Read more of this review »

Bertrand Russell
“Two things are to be remembered: that a man whose opinions and theories are worth studying may be presumed to have had some intelligence, but that no man is likely to have arrived at complete and final truth on any subject whatever. When an intelligent man expresses a view which seems to us obviously absurd, we should not attempt to prove that it is somehow true, but we should try to understand how it ever came toseemtrue. Thisexercise of historical and psychological imagination at once enlarges the scope of our thinking, and helps us to realize how foolish many of our own cherished prejudices will seem to an age which has a different temper of mind.”
Bertrand Russell, A History of Western Philosophy

T.S. Eliot
“An election is coming. Universal peace is declared and the foxes have a sincere interest in prolonging the lives of the poultry. ”
T.S. Eliot

T.S. Eliot
“No! I am not Prince Hamlet, nor was meant to be;
Am an attendant lord, one that will do
To swell a progress, start a scene or two,
Advise the prince; no doubt, an easy tool,
Deferential, glad to be of use,
Politic, cautious, and meticulous;
Full of high sentence, but a bit obtuse;
At times, indeed, almost ridiculous—
Almost, at times, the Fool.”
T.S. Eliot.

Dan Simmons
“In the beginning was the Word. Then came the fucking word processor. Then came the thought processor. Then came the death of literature. And so it goes.”
Dan Simmons, Hyperion

Cynthia Voigt
“Oriel didn’t move. But inside of his head, all was movement, like a river running over rapids, searching for the way through, trying routes around rocks and over shallows, a turbulence of thought more rapid than he could follow. Griff, he knew, would do and say nothing until he heard Oriel’s choice.”
Cynthia Voigt, The Wings of a Falcon
