Crandolin by Anna Tambour
"I don't think that you can really review an Anna Tambour book, you can merely sort of hang on for the ride and hope that your literary senses are still intact when you're done ... Yup, CRANDOLIN is essentially a cookery book. A cookery book of cosmic proportions ... CRANDOLIN is fabulation at its most exciting ... Anna Tambour is a rogue punk-prophetess whose writings not only stray from the beaten path; some of them are so far out there that you can hear the distant drums of strange story-tribes being awakened by her prose."
– I. O'Reilly, Review, British Fantasy Society
The Eisenberg Constant by Eugen Egner
"Think Kafka, think Spike Milligan, think Monty Python. But don't think you have encountered anything like this before."
– The Times, London
Leena Krohn's Collected Fiction Part 1: The Novels by Leena Krohn
"An extraordinary writer who deserves to be better known to readers in English—which, thanks to this excellent collection, is now possible. Reminiscent of Calvino, Borges, and Lem."
– STARRED REVIEW, Kirkus
Leena Krohn's Collected Fiction Part 2: Stories and Appreciations by Leena Krohn
"One of the most important books published in the U.S. this year. [Leena Krohn's Collected Fiction] is as important a publishing event in its own way as New Directions' release...of Clarice Lispector'sComplete Stories." –The Mumpsimus

The Best of Spanish Steampunk by James and Marian Womack
"If you're looking for many hundreds of pages of steampunk that mix the tropes we know and love with settings and histories you might not have encountered before, Best of Spanish Steampunk is definitely worth a look."
– Steampunk Magazine
The Other Half of the Sky by Athena Andreadis and Kay Holt
Every entry here, bar none, engaged me emotionally, entertained me and made me think. If there's a theme, maybe it's in a refreshing approach to the SF short story that's about opening doors, and not closing them.
– Gwyneth Jones, author of the Aleutian trilogy and the Bold as Love cycle, winner of the World Fantasy, Tiptree, Clarke and Dick awards
Not Dark Yet by Berit Ellingsen
"Suspenseful and haunting...Ellingsen projects a feeling of encroaching darkness on every page, and this tension guides the narrative like a purposeful current. Expansive and unsettling descriptions make it easy to fall under the story's spell. This is a remarkable novel from a very talented author."
– Publishers Weekly (starred)
The Narrator by Michael Cisco
"Michael Cisco is of a different kind and league from almost anyone writing today, and The Narrator is Cisco at his startling best."
– China Mieville, author of Perdido Street Station
