Winner of the first World Fantasy Award, Patricia A. McKillip’s THE FORGOTTEN BEASTS OF ELD continues to excite and inspire as evident from Jeffe Kennedy‘s comments, a mention in a Reading Nook interview with Hayley Reese Chow, and Jerry Stratton on his Mimsy Were the Borogoves discusses the classic novel.
All that said, I just completed a reread of Patricia McKillip’s THE FORGOTTEN BEASTS OF ELD, one of my most cherished books of all time. It’s a brilliant fantasy novel and one I wished I’d written.Jeffe Kennedy
Weirdly, in my mind, the first book I always think of is THE FORGOTTEN BEASTS OF ELD by Patricia McKillip. I was around 12 or 13 when I read it and was completely blown away.Hayley Reese Chow
The absolutely beautiful THE FORGOTTEN BEASTS OF ELD by Patricia McKillip, while not explicitly set in a far-future world, is clearly set in an aging one.Mimsy Were the Borogoves
