This is a live wire of a short story collection. Most of these stories are a very particular blend of realism and fantasy/science-fiction, and some magical realism, too. Hopkinson is so good at keeping her emotional thoroughlines clear and steady, ev ...more

Heavy-handed (you don't get to forget that you're reading a story that's telling you a moral, that is about confronting the ugly side of human nature within us all) but so beautifully written at times, tense and lyrical all at once.

Kage Baker
“And as the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so was my beloved among the sons. Et cetera. What would I give, to have that night back, out of all my nights? No treasure fleet could hold it, what I'd give; no caravan of mules could carry it away.”
Kage Baker, In the Garden of Iden

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
“This was love: a string of coincidences that gathered significance and became miracles.”
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Half of a Yellow Sun

Elizabeth E. Wein
“But a part of me lies buried in lace and roses on a riverbank in France-a part of me is broken off forever. A part of me will be unflyable, stuck in the climb.”
Elizabeth E. Wein, Code Name Verity

Rebecca Stead
“Sometimes you never feel meaner than the moment you stop being mean. It's like how turning on a light makes you realize how dark the room had gotten. And the way you usually act, the things you would have normally done, are like these ghosts that everyone can see but pretends not to.”
Rebecca Stead, When You Reach Me

Mary Doria Russell
“I ain't movin' to Arizona! Dammit, there is nothin' there but gravel and scorpions.”
Mary Doria Russell, Doc
