Wonders of the Invisible World in Starburst

Starburst is an amazing and long running scifi/fantasy/horror magazine from the UK. Even if you can't hop across the pond to grab an issue, their website is full of genre news, reviews, and original content. I humbly, and with no ulterior motive whatsoever, recommend starting with this review of Wonders of the Invisible World.

Choice bit:

"McKillip's prose — compact and poetical, yet also tough and humorous — is ideally suited to capturing the fragile visions that occasionally haunt, but just as often uplift, her characters. As a result, this is one to dip into, savour and place on that special shelf for books to be cherished."

Wonders of the Invisible World in Locus, Shades of Sentience

Patricia McKillip's story collection Wonders of the Invisible World  is out next month, but this month's Locus magazine will give you a long, detailed list of reasons to check it out, for example:

"I loved all the stories in this collection and if I still have to tell you to try this out, well, you haven’t been reading my review.... Patricia Mckillip is a master at what she does. Strongly recommended."

To read the full review you'll have to pick up the magazine, and if you're a science fiction/fantasy fan, you should definitely be reading Locus. It's a fantastic source of book reviews, author, and artist interviews, and the latest SF/F publishing news, so you'll always know what books to look forward to. Preview the September issue here, then pick up a copy or request it at your local bookseller.

For something you can read right away, Shades of Sentience calls Wonders "Highly recommended," in a review here.
