  • Amber

    I knew I had a problem when I was delving into my novel/short story idea last night at 4am and thought "what a great name Cassandra would be for my main character!" Then I remembered, whoops, I'm tota...

  • Emily

    excellent book about anarchist superheroes, a woman who can make things disappear and a guy who can turn into a fly (there is a special place in my heart for stories where people turn into insects), a...

    I thought I just liked the book, but then I read the last third--its fantastic. The ending is a little weak, but I get it...the novel stops but the story goes on. I think the "fly on the wall" metapho...
