Thank you to Netgalley and Tachyon for these! I read PASSING STRANGE by Ellen Klages last week, and definitely want to read more of her work.

The Nebula Award winner Andy Duncan had this to say.
Whenever I start to read a new story by the incomparable Ellen Klages, I feel as if I’m on the edge of my seat in the front row of the theater: keen-eyed and determined, this time, to pay close attention to the entire performance and figure out how she does it. I never do figure it out—her hands are too quick, too deft, and she seems to be everywhere at once . But that’s OK, the magic happens anyway, and bits of it still glitter on my shoulders as I re-enter my life, dazed and exhilarated, wiser and richer for the experience.
Tammy Sparks at BOOKS BONES & BUFFY is looking forward to the collection.
This is a short story collection, and I have to say the blurb makes me want to read these right now! This is a May release so you won’t see a review for a while, but I may sneak in a couple stories early anyway:-)
For LOCUS, Gary K. Wolfe praises Klages’ new novella PASSING STRANGE.
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, and despite the fascinating side-trips into the World’s Fair or those painfully exploitative nightclubs, its plot unfolds with the same clarity and focus we’ve come to expect from Klages’s stories. This may be, and probably is, her finest short work to date.
