Description

"Kij Johnson has an unrivalled gift for making the unreal real and the real unreal. In this spellbinding story, the intense reality of a quest through dreamland finds its goal in a here-and-now America that seems even stranger than the mountains and caverns of the dream. " --Ursula K. Le Guin

"By the time we finish this gorgeously written tale, we're about convinced that Lovecraft's wriggly gods and monsters are no match for smart women." -- The Chicago Tribune

"In the world of Vellitt Boe everything has meaning, from the numbered stars to visions in flame... This book held me spellbound from start to finish." --NPR

"With 'The Dream-quest of Vellitt Boe, ' Kij Johnson has deftly spun a delight and a wonder. Truly, this is one of my favorite weird tales of the last several years, weaving beauty, terror, and bittersweet triumph from a corner of Lovecraft's mythos that all too few dreamers dare to explore. Brava!" --Caitl�n R. Kiernan

"A wondrous work of fantasy and empowerment... the story draws to a close with an utterly surprising, fascinating, and, I shall say, perfect note." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Superb worldbuilding and gorgeous prose will hold readers rapt....Utterly irresistible." --Publishers Weekly Starred Review

"A solid dose of that odd mix of visceral horror and mythic vision that was the source of Lovecraft's power... the story's brilliant denouement may be its most subversive aspect of all." -- Locus
