It's the early part of the month, when varous sites post new reviews, which we're only too happy to share with you.
On The Dragon Griaule (Lucius Shepard):
“For many readers, several of these stories will be already familiar, three of them were Hugo nominees and widely anthologized. For new readers, rest assured that The Dragon Griaule contains stories that will alternately entrance, amuse, perplex, shock, enlighten, confound, and compel you to keep reading. It's a journey of altered lives in an altered landscape, where the fantastic and the real mingle in the lives of people who are never quite sure where their desires end and the dragon's desires begin. That's left for the reader to ponder, and in that way, the dragon Griaule remains as alive as ever.” (SF Site)
On Zeuglodon (James P. Blaylock):
“Blaylock manages to rekindle that sense of wonder readers felt when they read the first book that made them feel that anything and everything is possible. And most importantly that children were totally capable of handling the hardships and danger of an adventure… All in all a delightful and entertaining tale of adventure.” (SFRevu)
On The Woman Who Married a Cloud (Jonathan Carroll):
"In terms of themes and style, Carroll’s short stories are similar to his novels. The main difference is obviously a function of the difference in length: while it usually takes his novels a while to build up, the short stories go from common to cosmic surprisingly quickly. Expect a great many short stories that introduce a thoughtful, interesting protagonist whose life at some point suddenly intersects with (to use this word again) the transcendent: he or she discovers something about the true nature of the human soul, or love, or reality, or God."
