Reviews for Eileen Gunn's stories:
"Corporate satire and Kafkaesque metamorphoses gleefully collide." — Seattle Times
"Reading this book is like getting to wear the eyeballs of a madwoman in your own sockets for a day." — Warren Ellis
Stories from Eileen Gunn are always a cause for celebration. Where will she lead us? "Up the Fire Road" to a slightly alternate world. Into steampunk's heart. Never where we might expect.
Eileen Gunn (born 1945) is a science fiction author and editor based in Seattle, Washington, who began publishing in 1978.
