Writing the Elfyverse . . . and beyond

Just posted review at SBR for “The Waters Rising”

Folks, please go read my review of Sheri S. Tepper’s unique, thought-provoking novel THE WATERS RISING.  It is a novel that’s slow to develop, yet I enjoyed it a great deal — novels do not have to start quickly to be understood.  (I wish more agents realized this; Ms. Tepper thanked hers, so he at least obviously understands this.  Though I also realize that as Ms. Tepper is a well-known author, someone readers will seek out, that analogy only goes so far.)

At any rate, please go read my review, then check out Ms. Tepper’s book.  Perhaps if more people read interesting novels like this one, agents won’t be so leery of trying something new.  (One can only hope, anyway.)

Here’s the link:
