Summary, etc.:
"A stunning collection of reality-bending stories, teeming with uncanny characters whose lives unfold in worlds at once strikingly human and eerily original"-- Provided by publisher.
When Mrs. Sorensen's husband dies, she rekindles a long-dormant love with an unsuitable mate in "Mrs. Sorensen and the Sasquatch." In "Open the Door and the Light Pours Through," a young man wrestles with grief and his sexuality in an exchange of letters with his faraway beloved. "Dreadful Young Ladies" demonstrates the strength and power - known and unknown - of the imagination. In "Notes on the Untimely Death of Ronia Drake," a witch is haunted by the deadly repercussions of a spell. "The Insect and the Astronomer" upends expectations aboout good and bad, knowledge and ignorange, love and longing. The World Fantasy Award-winning novella "The Unlicensed Magician" introduces the secret magical life of an invisible girl once left for dead - with thematic echoes of Kelly Barnhill's Newbery Medal-winning novel, The Girl Who Drank the Moon.
Genre: Short stories.
