THE GOSPEL OF THE KNIFE by Will Shetterly
SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
Released: July 1, 2007

"Other than the intriguing Judas chapters, the story's narrated in a bizarre and unconvincing second person, present tense (so who is the actual narrator?) and treads largely familiar ground; not so odd, then, that the most controversial section is by far the most persuasive."
Still working the boundaries between YA and adult fantasy, Shetterly offers this long-range follow-up—hardly a sequel—to Dogland (1997). Read full book review >
CHIMERA by Will Shetterly
SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
Released: July 1, 2000

"The ingredients—wisecracking gumshoe, gorgeous slinky heroine, blood-tingling action, ingenious plot twists—might be familiar, but Shetterly's thoughtful, hard-edged remix is a winner."
Sleuthing noir in a grim near-future of genetic manipulation (those of mixed animal and human ancestry are "furs," humans are "skins"), and artificial intelligence, from the author of the splendid Dogland (1997). Read full book review >
DOGLAND by Will Shetterly
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: June 1, 1997

"Compelling, absorbing, hard-edged work, lit by glimpses of another, more fantastic reality: reminiscent of top-notch Orson Scott Card, child-centered but tackling adult themes fearlessly and with great charm."
 Shetterly makes the transition from young adult (Elsewhere, 1991, etc.) to adult fantasy with assurance and aplomb. Read full book review >
NEVERNEVER by Will Shetterly
FANTASY
Released: Oct. 1, 1993

"Though it doesn't stand well alone, this has the same witty adolescent verve and vulnerability—plus a message concerning peace among those who are really different. (Fiction. 14+)"
 Fast-paced, occasionally confusing, but never dull: a sequel to the punk fantasy Elsewhere (1991) recounting the further adventures of teenager Ron and his friends—other human runaways, elves, and those of mixed blood. Read full book review >
ELSEWHERE by Will Shetterly
FANTASY
Released: Oct. 1, 1991

"Still, the ideas fascinate, Ron's fate matters, and this in an unusual view of the streets. (Fiction. 12-15)"
 An intriguing hybrid fantasy that mixes life on the street with magic and glimpses of unworldly beauty. Read full book review >
