Praise

Praise for The Art of Space Travel and Other Stories:

“Nina Allan is a writer of rare talent. The Art of Space Travel addresses life’s biggest questions with such delicacy and tenderness that you won’t fear staring into the abyss.” – Alma Katsu, author of The Hunger and The Deep

“Nina Allan is a great writer of the fantastic, here to remind us how weird it is to be alive. Her stories have a quiet urgency to them; they are moving and gripping and wholly themselves. Their strangeness helps us make sense of our own. This is a rare collection, to read, to ponder, to treasure.” – Francesco Dimitri, author of The Book of Hidden Things

“I’m in awe of Nina Allan’s storytelling. Each richly detailed tale hints at a far wider world, and many contain stories with stories, realities within realities, warping genre boundaries yet retaining a focus on entirely believable characters and, often, the contemplation of loss. Put simply, these are some of the best modern short stories I’ve read.” – Tim Major, author of Hope Island

“One of the most able SF talents in science fiction.” – The Times

“Like Allan’s other tales, it has tendrils extending well beyond its borders, and we come away from The Art of Space Travel with the odd but exhilarating feeling that we’ve encountered a lot more stories than the 14 listed in the table of contents, as impressive as those are.” – Locus 


Praise for Nina Allan:

“A captivating exploration of community, tragedy and memory. Nina Allan’s writing is enthralling”. – Irenosen Okojie, on The Good Neighbours

“A fantastic book” – Andrew O’Hagan, on The Dollmaker

“Her literary sensibility fuses the fantastic and the mundane to great effect” – The Guardian, on The Dollmaker

“A subversive writer…playing with both the familiar protocols of genre and with the nature of the reading experience itself” – Locus, on The Rift

“Brilliantly ambiguous” – Tor.com, on The Rift

“One of the best books published this year in any genre” – Strange Horizons, on The Rift
