Errantry: Strange Stories by Elizabeth Hand
Liz’s lush descriptions of remote, wild places, both natural and supernatural, combine with vivid depictions of her characters and their trenchant emotions, their life journeys. These are people on the waning side of life, worldly wise, world-weary, often damaged by personal loss, and always culturally savvy. In these atmospheric, enigmatic stories, they—and the reader—will encounter terrors in the dark. Read Errantry in the Story Collection Storybundle—but be sure to keep the lights on.
“Classically engaging, tales you could read aloud around a fire late at night to induce trembles and sighs. Hand’s stories glue right on to memory and become truly resonant and inexplicable.We find ourselves wrapped in an evocation without knowing fully how she got us there, shivering with fear at an image of lights or blinking with awe at the modest beauty of a small, rare creature living its life, seen from a distance.” — Aimee Bender, Washington Post
“Hand’s stories are surreal, haunting and beautiful. I’m scared to disturb the intricate and delicate worlds that Hand has created in this collection of stories that alternately draw me in and scare me away ….. She leads the reader lightly down a thickly wooded trail between disparate universes littered with loss, despair, spiritual pilgrimages and restless characters.” — Minneapolis Star Tribune
“The magic in Elizabeth Hand’s short fiction can usually be found at its edges, just slightly out of reach. It’s there for a moment, but it’s hard to see without squinting. If you blink, it might be gone—but you’d never lose the sense that it’s still there, pushing in on reality from the outside. A gorgeous set of stories.” — Tor.com
