Description
Filter House collects the short fiction by Nisi Shawl and includes an introduction by Eileen Gunn (author of Stable Strategies). The collections fourteen tales offer a haunting montage that works its magic subtly on the readers subconscious. As Karen Joy Fowler, author of The Jane Austen Book Club says, This lovely collection will take you, like a magic carpet, to some strange and wonderful places. Three of the stories are original to the volume. Eminent novelist and critic Ursula K. Le Guin writes: From the exotic, baroque complexities of At the Huts of Ajala to the stark, folktale purity of The Beads of Ku, these fourteen superbly written stories will weave around you a ring of dark, dark magic. Matt Ruff, author of Set This House In Order and Bad Monkeys calls Filter House A traveling story-bazaar, offering treasures and curios from diverse lands of wonder. Eileen Gunn, author of Stable Strategies, concurs that these are Remarkably involving stories that pull you along a path of wonder, word by word, in worlds where everything is a bit different.
