Editorial Reviews

Fantasy Matters - Kat Howard
Eugie Foster is one of the best writers of speculative short fiction currently working. She has great facility for language and structure, an ability to see beauty and terror in equal measure, and consistently crafts stories that are both harrowing and satisfying…”Requiem Duet, Concerto for Flute and Voodoo”…is a story about friendship and grief, about losing your heart to find it…You may cry at the end. You’ll be glad you read it.
Myriad Spheres - Michael K. Rose
…a well-written and intriguing story, Foster’s skill as a writer draws the reader in to the emotional worlds of the characters. In short fiction it is often difficult for readers to have enough invested in the characters to care about them but Foster accomplishes this flawlessly.
Diabolical Plots - Frank Dutkiewicz
If “Requiem” is any indication on how well [Eugie Foster] writes, you can expect several more awards to come her way in the near future. The story was just plain dynamite. It is the best Friday story I have read at DSF yet. Recommended.

Meet the Author

Eugie Foster calls home a mildly haunted, fey-infested house in metro Atlanta that she shares with her husband, Matthew. After receiving her master’s degree in Psychology, she retired from academia to pen flights of fancy. She also edits legislation for the Georgia General Assembly, which from time to time she suspects is another venture into flights of fancy.

Eugie received the 2009 Nebula Award for her novelette, “Sinner, Baker, Fabulist, Priest; Red Mask, Black Mask, Gentleman, Beast,” the 2011 and 2012 Drabblecast People's Choice Award for Best Story, the 2012 eFestival of Words Best Independent Short Story Collection eBook Award, and the 2002 Phobos Award. THE DRAGON AND THE STARS anthology, edited by Derwin Mak and Eric Choi, with her story, “Mortal Clay, Stone Heart,” won the 2011 Prix Aurora Award for Best English Related Work. Her fiction has also been translated into eight languages and been a finalist for the Hugo and British Science Fiction Association awards.

Her short story collection, RETURNING MY SISTER'S FACE AND OTHER FAR EASTERN TALES OF WHIMSY AND MALICE, was published in 2009 and has been used as a textbook at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and the University of California-Davis.
