Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
"The texture of these stories is almost impossible to explain. Her worlds have a magic sheen . . . She moulds them into dimensions we can only just sense. She is unique. She is legend"
- The Times

"A wonderfully mordant analyst of human weakness. The gems in this impressive collection have the same power to disconcert as her best novels"
- Martin Amis, Observer

"As well as being the usual polished gems we have come to expect from the author, they are an indication of her development as a writer"
- TimeOut

"On the strength of The Wind’s Twelve Quarters, I would not hesitate to say that the short story is the appropriate medium for her, and one in which few contemporary writers (of science fiction or anything else) an equal her"
- New Scientist
