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 >

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 >
