Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Lyrical and polyphonous, gorgeous and brutal, The Sorcerer of the Wildeeps is an unforgettable tale of love that empowers.” Ken Liu, multiple Hugo Award–winning author
The Sorcerer of the Wildeeps reads like Gene Wolfe and Samuel R. Delany trying to one-up each other on a story prompt by Fritz Leiber. That means it’s good. Read it.” Max Gladstone, author of the Craft Sequence
“The unruly lovechild of Shakespeare, Baldwin, George R. R. Martin, and Ghostface Killah—this was a book I could not put down.” Daniel José Older, author of Half-Resurrection Blues
“Seamlessly knots magic and science in a wholly organic way…The Sorcerer of the Wildeeps will catch you by the throat and hold you fast until the last searing word.” Alyssa Wong, Nebula-nominated author of The Fisher Queen
