Lambda Winner

Congratulations to Sandra McDonald, who just nabbed herself a Lambda Award for her collection, Diana Comet and Other Improbable Stories. Which is, I might note, available as an ebook from Wizard's Tower Press.

Now, what was it I said about this book when Steve Berman sent me an ARC on the off-chance of a blurb? Oh, yeah, it was:

''In that grand tradition of the fantastic that runs from Ray Bradbury to Jeffrey Ford -- and sitting happily beside those writers at their richest and most enchanting -- McDonald's collection is a book to fall in love with: a beautiful truth at the heart of every whimsy; every tale turning us back to history, to reality, even as it reinvents our world; and the collected whole even greater than the sum of its exquisitely interwoven parts.''

So, yeah, now do you believe me? And if you do, why haven't you picked up a copy yet, huh?

No, really, go buy one. It's a wee gem of a book.
