"Taaffe's collection promises a long, exciting career. I am energized by the thought of her next collection, her first novel, her poetry. It reminds me of being young. In the meantime, Singing Innocence and Experience is, in its exuberance, its lyricism, and its sincerity, still better than ninety percent of the short story collections being published in genre this year."

Review: Jabberwocky [Oct. 30th, 2005|06:55 pm]

[Current Music |"O Fortuna," Carl Orff]

"Sean Wallace has put together a brief anthology of weird fantastical stories (mostly quite short) and poetry, Jabberwocky. The stories are all by women, and so are almost all of the poems. I liked best Sonya Taaffe's "Shadowplay", a brief intense picture of regret over lost love, and Ainsley Dicks' "In Grandmother's House", an interesting reimagining of "Little Red Riding Hood"."—Locus.
