Saffron and Brimstone: Strange Stories CoverWe are way behind with spotlighting good recent reads. Happily Book Sense made it slightly easier on us by choosing Liz Hand’s new collection, Saffron and Brimstone, as a Book Sense pick (um, next month):

SAFFRON AND BRIMSTONE: Strange Stories, by Elizabeth Hand (M Press, $14.95 paper, 1595820965) “Stories from a master of lapidary style and fey fiction. I’m reminded of John Fowles’ touch of the mythical in The Magus, but Hand is no imitator — she wields her own magic.” —Pauline Ziniker, Country Bookshelf, Bozeman, MT
