I'm Audra, a 30-something married lesbian. I love interesting heroines, gorgeous prose, place as character, and the occasional werewolf.
Saffron And Brimstone: Strange Stories - Elizabeth Hand One-sentence summary: Strange, slightly-surreal short stories in the vein of Aimee Bender.Why did you get this book?: The title, I think.Do you like the cover?: Yes, if I didn't look too closely at the bug.Did you enjoy the book?: Yes. Ish. In every story, I would find myself enthralled and then irritated, enthralled again, then disappointed. And yet, in the end, I enjoyed most of the stories. "Cleopatra Brimstone" and "The Least Trumps" were my favorites.
