Awwww, someone just posted a review of THE SHATTERED VINE! I love it when backlist gets love….
And especially when the reader gets what I was doing.Â
“[the scene] is indicative of how Gilman subverts expectations, favoring philosophical debates over big action sequences, and even dispatching one major battle completely off the page. The result is a story about how the real victories are won behind the scenes, with cunning and careful planning, rather than by large armies doing as much damage to each other as possible.
By mixing familiar fantasy elements with unexpected new approaches, Gilman produces a novel thatâ€™s both traditional and forward-thinking.”
Yeah, I’m never going to be the novelist they talk about on E!, or even the NYT. But this is good too. I can go on another day.Â Â :-D
