Praise for Mary Robinette Kowal “Mary Robinette Kowal is a fabulous writer.”—John Scalzi “Combining history, magic, and adventure, [Valour and Vanity] balances emotional depth with buoyant storytelling.” Kirkus Starred Review (A Kirkus and NPR Book of the Year] “ ‘Evil Robot Monkey’ . . . Typical of Kowal’s fiction, the story is, first and foremost, a pleasure to read. It is seamless, whole and complete.”— Clarkesworld “ ‘The Lady Astronaut of Mars’ is a masterpiece of character, and a rich experience that begs to be read over and over again.”—A Dribble of Ink “[‘Salt of the Earth’ is] real science fiction, based on the chemistry of sodium. The society is well-conceived, with a body’s salt used as if it were a sacrament . . . ”—Locus Online “[‘The White Phoenix Feather’ is an] exceptional tale and the ongoing descriptions of the various gourmet dishes enticed me in a way few stories can—through the sensation of taste. A must read.”—Tangent “[‘Rampion’ is a] wonderful story.”—Orson Scott Card “[‘With ‘The Bound Man,’] Mary Robinette Kowal presents a tale that exemplifies what epic fantasy is all about.”—Wired “[‘Clockwork Chickadee’] is, in turn, playful and charming, well thought out and deliberate, and Kowal appears to have written her own version of an O. Henry story.”—Adventures in Reading “[‘For Want of a Nail’ is a] startlingly effective look at hard choices about what existences are worth living.”—Eyrie.org “Unexpected twists abound in this story, the surprising conclusion of which I loved on several levels.”—SFSite on “At the Edge of Dying”.
