    This came highly recommended, and the Tor novellas I ve read have been pretty wow so far Great opening, absolutely engaging and brilliant Great depiction of the under the radar sexual and racial world of 1940s San Francisco Really liked the setting and the central couple.The structure needed work though There s a magical aspect of folding time and space which is almost completely unexplored it comes up twice in passing mentions in the first, what, 90%, and exists only to facilitate the endi This came highly recommended, and the Tor novellas I ve read have been pretty wow so far Great opening, absolutely engaging and brilliant Great depiction of the under the radar sexual and racial world of 1940s San Francisco Really liked the setting and the central couple.The structure needed work though There s a magical aspect of folding time and space which is almost completely unexplored it comes up twice in passing mentions in the first, what, 90%, and exists only to facilitate the ending That just doesn t work it feels like a historical bumped into a fantasy or indeed like a historical was adapted to fit a SFF submissions call And this is annoying because the fantasy element is a brilliant idea packed with potential, and the historical is terrific, so if...

    I was delighted to find that this book is a return to the magic infused San Francisco of Klages story Caligo Lane, which I loved In the present day, an elderly woman, setting her affairs in order as she knows her life is reaching its end, goes to sell a valuable painting to a collector It s a lost work by a pulp fiction illustrator, legendary among a certain niche market although the subject matter is a bit unusual for the genre But there are hints that there is something not quite on I was delighted to find that this book is a return to the magic infused San Francisco of Klages story Caligo Lane, which I loved In the present day, an elderly woman, setting her affairs in order as she knows her life is reaching its end, goes to sell a valuable painting to a collector It s a lost work by a pulp fiction illustrator, legendary among a certain niche market although the subject matter is a bit unusual for the genre But there are hints that there is something...

    The first thing that attracted me to this novella was the beautiful and arresting cover All those blues had a haunting quality Little did I know that this painting is literally at the heart of this story Klages uses it to bookend and indeed frame a love story with a difference, using 1939 San Francisco as the backdrop.The mix of characters works really well, as does the focus on the two main protagonists We ...

    A love story to San Francisco across the decades, and its queer community I thought this was a lovely piece but it felt a tad disjointed Nonetheless, well enjoyed.

    This is a lovely little novella centered around the lesbian scene of San Francisco during the 1940s.As someone who lives in San Franciso, I can tell you that Klages really captures the feel of the city Obviously I didn t live there in the 40s, but there are aspects that live on in the city today Plus, parts of this book do take place in modern times.The shift in perspectives is a little clunky we start the book following an old Helen, but the story is really centered on Haskell and Emily s l This is a lovely little novella centered around the lesbian scene of San Francisco during the 1940s.As someone who lives in San Franciso, I can tell you that Klages really captures the feel of the city Obviously I didn t live there in the 40s, but there are aspects that live on in the city today Plus, parts of this book do take place in modern times.The shift in perspectives is a little clunky we start the book following an old Helen, but the story is really centered on Haskell and Emily s love story At first I found the transition a bit off putting, but because Haskell and Emily s romance is so sweet, I got over that pretty quickly.The fantasy elements of this are not particularly present We really only see them at the beginning and end of the book The sudden reintroduction of the magical element threw me off, and the book would have been stronger if we saw just a few instances of it in the book s middle.But those are all relatively minor grievances, and I still loved this...
