Gary K. Wolfe reviews Ellen Klages

From Locus Magazine’s January 2017 issue


Passing Strange may be the most fully developed and richly detailed of all of Klages’s stories for adults, but it never feels like it needs to be a longer novel…

Liz Bourke reviews Wesley Chu

From Locus Magazine’s December 2016 issue


The Rise of Io is a messy, scrappy, and yet incred­ibly fun science fiction thriller with extra body-snatching (more like body-sharing) aliens.
