Non-human romance. Tarot-powered difference engines. The bureaucracy of the gate to Hell. These and more appear in this anthology of strange stories by Jeremy Zimmerman. This anthology collects five genre-bending tales from fantasy to steampunk to cyberpunk.
"I won't spoil the ending, but I will offer that the imagery in this tale is so wonderful that the settings sometimes transported me away from the main character's conflict. The scenes in this story, like Impressionist art, consist of ordinary subjects displayed in mesmerizingly vacillating light. Whereas I usually care most about plot and about character development, these descriptions were so robust that I would gladly read additional pages of Zimmerman's work just to reimmerse myself in his language."
- KJ Hannah Greenberg, Tangent, regarding "A Crazy Kind of Love"
"Unchained Melody is a sharp, beautiful blow to the heart. Zimmerman wrote a heroine who is recognizable; a woman who is defining herself, on her terms."
- Lillian Cohen-Moore, author of "The Imperial Companion" and "Hatavat Chalom"
