"This is a fascinating and thought-provoking novella and perfectly exemplifies one ofthe reasons I enjoy Rusch's writing as much as I do. Her stories often unfold with a breezy, entertaining flow, leading one to expect something fuzzy and warm. Except at its heart, her fiction has a deep emotional edge that, while it might seem at odds with the storytelling style, turns out to be perfectly suited to it, paying off her readers with rich dividends." (Charles de Lint, The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction)
