Ansible was pitched to me as featuring a ‘bisexual hijabi time traveler’, and you know what, that really is all I need to hear.
A season of short stories, and an exquisitely beautiful trilogy!
Grimdark elves with seriously outside-the-box worldbuilding!
Listen, this book is simply gold-plated.
Gorgeous prose + glorious queer monster-girls = witches that will steal your heart away.
Before this, I had never read Khaw’s work before. They mostly write horror, and I am a total whimp about horror.
I don’t care. After reading The All-Consuming World, I will read anything Khaw writes.
I still get chills just thinking about it. The subversiveness. The pure fucking cleverness and originality. The deceptively subtle brilliance of it all.
Two books that are perfectly okay, and one that is actively terrible. Feel free to skip and avoid the negativity!
This book is an outpouring of feels and laughs and found-family and queer celebration, and I could not possibly love it more.
An epically beautiful sci fi that asks what it means to be a person.
