Sci-fi Novella Review: The Past is Red by Catherynne M. Valente

Catherynne M. Valente is not an author I’d read much before this year, but with Hugo nominations in three different fiction categories, this year is quickly changing that. The only one of those three that will warrant its own post—I usually roll up shorter work into my monthly round-ups—is the Best Novella Finalist The Past… Continue reading Sci-fi Novella Review: The Past is Red by Catherynne M.

Fantasy Novella Review: The Four Profound Weaves by R.B. Lemberg

After my first year of participating in the Fantasy Bingo challenge left me starting a bunch of new series and leaving myself on cliffhangers, I decided that this year, I’d get extra ambitious and do a themed card with all sequels. This was before the card was actually released, and one of the squares was… Continue reading Fantasy Novella Review: The Four Profound Weaves by R.B. Lemberg

Sci-fi Novella Review: One Day All This Will Be Yours by Adrian Tchaikovsky

I’ve had some fantastic success lately with Adrian Tchaikovsky’s novellas, so I figured it’d be worth my while to go back to the well with One Day All This Will Be Yours, which came out last spring accompanied by a rash of glowing reviews in my circles. Unsurprisingly, this one was yet another win.  One… Continue reading Sci-fi Novella Review: One Day All This Will Be Yours by Adrian Tchaikovsky

Fantasy Novella Review: In the Watchful City by S. Qiouyi Lu

S. Qiouyi Lu’s debut novella, In the Watchful City, came across my radar in late summer and immediately caught my attention with the unusual combination of (1) a few glowing reviews from other readers who significantly overlap my tastes, (2) a perfect fit for a bingo square I hadn’t hit (2021 debut), and (3) easily… Continue reading Fantasy Novella Review: In the Watchful City by S. Qiouyi Lu

Fantasy Novella Review: The Seventh Perfection by Daniel Polansky

The Seventh Perfection is a novella that I didn’t hear much about when it came out last year, but over the past few months, I started seeing reviews trickling in. Some of them were glowing. Some of them were mixed. But they were all intriguing. I wasn’t sure whether I’d love the book, but it… Continue reading Fantasy Novella Review: The Seventh Perfection by Daniel Polansky

Fantasy Novella Review: Silver in the Wood by Emily Tesh

I’ve heard only positive things about Silver in the Wood since its debut in 2019, but the premise—cozy fantasy romance between a melancholy magical creature and a newcomer to his forest—wasn’t really in my wheelhouse, and it was easy to get lost amidst so many other excellent new releases. So, in keeping with the theme… Continue reading Fantasy Novella Review: Silver in the Wood by Emily Tesh
