Booklist: Once again, Tanzer expertly weaves an authentic historical setting into a tense, engrossing supernatural frame with lush descriptions and a steadily building pace…. Despite the supernatural, historical setting, readers will see themes and issues that reverberate eerily with our present.

Barnes and Noble: Molly Tanzer does it all; from her debut novel, named best book of 2015 by i09, to the “thoughtful erotica” she edits at her magazine, Congress, she’s proven to be one of the most distinct voices in contemporary SFF.

Tanzer balances wink-wink references to contemporary politics with pulpy tropes and solid storytelling.

Publishers WeeklyTanzer’s charming, confident follow-up to Creatures of Will and Temper continues the conceit of drawing on famous literary source texts for character and plot material; here, The Great Gatsby crashes into the works of H.P. Lovecraft, with, of course, chaotic results. On Long Island in the 1920s, Ellie West does bootlegging by boat to help pay for her brother’s education. One night, she inadvertently gets into an altercation with another sailor that ends in her acquiring some odd new bottles of moonshine; those bottles end up at a party thrown by Delphine “Fin” Coulthead and her rich husband and friends. Fin is out of her element in the endless parties of the Roaring ’20s, a situation only made worse by the nightmarish paranormal effects of the tainted liquor. Fin and Ellie make an appealing team as they work to figure out what’s wrong and stop it, and the depiction of Long Island is a fine example of nuanced, lovely landscape writing. The portrayal of groups of normal people falling into mob violence and hatred of the other groups is genuinely unnerving, and Tanzer resists simplistic moral takes. Some elements of the plot are a touch predictable, but the overall effect is delightful.

Cover of Foundryside by Robert Jackson Bennett.NYT Book Review: An absolutely riveting secondary world fantasy. To say ‘I couldn’t put it down’ is a cliché, but… I felt fully, utterly engaged by the ideas, actually in love with the core characters for their differences and the immensely generative friction between them, and in awe of Bennett’s craft.

Crossing the brilliant economics and object-empathy of Edward Carey’s Heap House with the careful character and setting work of Fonda Lee’s Jade CityFoundryside is a magnificent, mind-blowing start to a series I’m hungry for.
