Notable Reviews

“...the intention behind Taylor’s experimentation remains the same: to expand the definition of First Nations literature... playfully subversive tone, the rest of the collection is a romp through terrain that—once recognizable—has been made over by Taylor’s Frankenstein-esque treatment of genre. Science fiction, even when it is playing out the end of the world, is still intended to entertain, and Taylor leads with that, letting the seriousness of his themes arise unexpectedly...It is a quality of Taylor’s work to leave you with not one lasting thought but three or four, and he brings a healthy dose of levity to this collection along with more solemn moments.”
~ Nora Decter, The Malahat Review, April 2017
