Charlie Jane Anders - All The Birds In The Sky (2016)

My review of 'All The Birds In The Sky' by Charlie Jane Anders is up at Fantasy Faction. I really loved this book, a moving coming of age story about a witch and a mad scientist who grow up as friends but wind up on opposite sides in the coming war between science and magic. The end results is a charming, hilarious and utterly barking mixture of science fiction, Fantasy, fairy tales and vividly observed life. Anders' ability to extract profundities about the meaning of life from absurdist humour rivals that of Vonnegut or Douglas Adams. Read more at the link.
