THE GRAND ELLIPSE by Paula Volsky
SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
Released: Oct. 10, 2000

"Brimming with action, repartee, intrigue, comedy, magic, and irony, with impressively well-rounded characters and a dash of feminism: a spine-tingling, heartwarming delight."
Volsky's new Victorian fantasy takes place in the same world as The White Tribunal (1997) but otherwise is unconnected. Read full book review >
THE WHITE TRIBUNAL by Paula Volsky
SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
Released: Aug. 11, 1997

"Skimpy backdrop, thin plot, and characters by the numbers, not to mention the dreadfully feeble conclusion: some graphic tortures but otherwise unpersuasive."
 In Volsky's new fantasy (The Gates of Twilight, 1996, etc.), the city of Lis Folaze in Upper Hetzia is slowly recovering from the Sortilegious Wars (though we never find out what these involved). Read full book review >
THE GATES OF TWILIGHT by Paula Volsky
SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
Released: March 1, 1996

 Another otherworld fantasy from the author of The Wolf of Winter (1993), etc. The teeming, rather backward folk of subtropical Aveshq are dominated, politically and economically, by the brisk, progressive Vonahrish—the obvious model being the British occupation of India. Read full book review >
THE WOLF OF WINTER by Paula Volsky
SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
Released: Nov. 15, 1993

"Thoughtful, distinctive, unconventional, and shapely."
 Intriguing other-world fantasy from the author of Illusion (1991), set in the subarctic Russian-flavored land of Rhazaulle. Read full book review >
ILLUSION by Paula Volsky
SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
Released: Jan. 15, 1992

"Surprisingly absorbing and agreeable, given the stereotyped characters and general air of predictability, with unobtrusive yet well thought-out magical notions and a backdrop of genuine depth and consistency."
 Give the Russian Revolution a French ambiance, add a dollop of American spirit and a dash of magic—and you have some idea of the setting for this bulky but entertaining historical fantasy. Read full book review >
