Locus Reviews Fonda Lee's The Jade Setter of Janloon

12th Sep 2022

The second printing of Fonda Lee’s The Jade Setter of Janloon is due this fall, but the novella continues to draw praise, this time from Locus:

“Green Bone Saga and The Jade Setter of Janloon have opposite momentum: the trilogy moves towards jade and the novella away from it. In this sense, The Jade Setter of Janloon can be read independent from the trilogy, and does offer a compelling, fast-paced read on its own (especially its critique of power). But overall, its most successful aspects are in complementing the trilogy, though they naturally caught me off-guard. Pulo’s story is important—worth telling and examining—and I’m glad it exists as The Jade Setter of Janloon.”

Second printing: Sewn hardcover, clothbound, signed by the author:$45
