When the astonishing literary fantasist Elizabeth Hand visited Bard College nearly a decade ago and gave such a brilliant reading, I promised myself I'd have he...r up again. Luckily, I've kept that promise to myself, so hope any of you in the Hudson Valley who are free on Monday will come join us and encounter this woman's brilliance and magic. 2:30, Weis Cinema, free and open to all!

About Hard Light:

"Nerve-jangling and addictive, Elizabeth Hand’s Hard Light offers up a signature Cass Neary tale of moral ambivalence, keen betrayal and a dark lushness that leaps off the page.

We’d follow her anywhere, into any glittery abyss, and do." --Megan Abbott

"Elizabeth Hand's Cass Neary novels, rightly praised for their icy tension and rema...

Early reviews of the UK editions of Generation Loss:

This first book in an edgy new US crime series introduces us to burnt-out punk photographer Cass Neary. Cass is a mess but at least she hasn’t sold out: she’s hooking up with younger men (and sometimes women) in gnarly New York clubs, still listening to Patti Smith and refusing to ditch her ancient…

SF Weekly on Errantry:

In an age when the price of a movie ticket can get you three hours of unstructured hang-time in Middle Earth, fantasy worlds aren't exactly at a premium. But narratives that throw us up against the truly fantastic &mdash

Minneapolis Star Tribune review:

As I was reading "Errantry: Strange Stories," the phone rang
If Vibe is getting his own solo series, then Graeme thinks these obscure characters could also join The New 52.

Craig Gidney on Errantry. DInesen is one of my very favorite writers — I reread "Copenhagen Season" every year (and come to think of it, it's time!).

The devil is in the details in this collection of well-crafted short fiction that sits on the uneasy border of slipstream and horror fiction. The pieces in this collection are as dense as novels, f...
