Five Weird Books for Strange Times by Paul Di Filippo

Thanks to Paul Di Filippo for featuring “All the Fabulous Beasts”  as one of his five weird books for strange times, in his essay for Barnes & Noble Review.

“Having published her first story only in 2005, Priya Sharma has taken until now to amass a volume’s worth of her tales, but the wait has been amply repaid. The sixteen items in her debut collection, All the Fabulous Beasts, show her to be a young adept at stories that specialize in eerie transformations and dead-end lives broken beyond repair. Her occasional resonances with certain literary ancestors show a deep knowledge of and reverence for the Weird, which she extrapolates along her own special vectors.” Paul Di Filippo
