Hum'n And Shiver'n

The Kirkus Reviews can be a little
Well, snotty comes to mind
I always have to read other reviews
To get to the truth
This one they got right in spades
Named it one of the best SF books of the year
The Hum and the Shiver by Alex Bledsoe
Great story telling
Wonderful characters, good and bad
Satisfying finish
Made me think of Phillip Pullman
He never finishes with saccharine sweetness
Just what needs to be

Folk music for a back woodsy SF folk tale
Divine Providence by Deer Tick
