Glassmaker and Jeweler reviewed

A new review of my Birdverse story “The Desert Glassmaker and the Jeweler of Berevyar” (Uncanny), by Kate Lechler at Fantasy Literature:

What I absolutely loved about this story was how rooted in natural landscapes it was. Maru tells Vadrai about the desert, full of wind and the “striated bones of forgotten beasts.” Vadrai in turn shares images of their home in the Northern forest, “the small, snow–hopping birds and the children running outside, running even though clothed in such enormous garments” and a wonder which Maru has never witnessed: trees.

I also loved the idea that two creativities, even of different natures, enhance each other.
