In the running for a Nebula Award!
If Sanders wins the Science Fiction Writers of America's Nebula Award this year, I wouldn't be surprised. This is the kind of book that renews my faith in modern fiction! Congratulations, William Sanders, on a wonderful book!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

A truly fine read
My eyes usually glaze over when an author allegedly has a 'voice,' but Sanders makes his Cherokee grandson and grandfather leap off the page. The other characters are also nifty - it is hard to imagine a heroic Immigration and Naturalization Service bureaucrat, but Sanders makes her three dimensional. Reminded me of Heinlein's 'Fairy Godmother Department' for modeling bureaucratic behavior, but this lady embodies no-nonsense, honest-to-the-bone decency. Did not need a magic wand, just a quiet sort of guts. Sadly, Sanders is hard to find in print - suggest you try his material at www.alexlit.com, where the short stories can be found without digging out old scifi managizines. Shakespeare staging Hamlet in Cherokee gives a bit of Sanders' imagination.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
