Signal-boosting (ha) from Jeff VanderMeer’s blog.
Hiromi Goto is the author of The Kappa Child, a book my wife loved and recommended to me years ago. Most recently, she has a new YA/adult-crossover-dark-fantasy titled Half World. And right now she’s posting at Amazon’s Omnivoracious blog on some interesting topics: dark fantasy and realism, romance (and lack thereof) in dark fantasy, and soon, how fantasy and horror work together.
I have to say, the cover of Half World is gorgeous.
And I know the author / = / the text and we’re all postmodern and stuff, but Goto looks exactly the way I think I’d hoped she would look, if I ever thought to hope such a thing.
And hey, she’s also Canadian. Three points!
