    Paperback ´ Skin Folk PDF/EPUB µ skin epub, folk free, Skin Folk Epub Perhaps the only thing worse than fear is apathy Fear makes us do horrible things to people Apathy makes us allow horrible things to happen to them When we act in fear or when we don't act out of empathy that is when we become the monster Oh my god this was brilliant This short story collection is sci fi fantasy and has so much to say about gender and the Gaze and Nalo Hopkinson's writing is honest to god so good I think Hopkinson sums up this collection quite well in this interview As a young reader mimetic fiction fiction that mimics reality left me feeling unsatisfied The general message that I got from it was life sucks sometimes it's not too bad but mostly people are mean to each other then they die But rightly or wrongly I felt as though I'd alre

    Paperback ´ Skin Folk PDF/EPUB µ skin epub, folk free, Skin Folk EpubI think a short story collection can sometimes be a great introduction to an intriguing author This was my first Hopkinson book She is fascinating and a bit freaky freaky as in weird and as in Rick James Super Freak This was a book of short stories ranging from Caribbean folklore to horror to science fiction Her stories are sensuous seductive and yeah a bit salacious as well She is a gifted storyteller with a command of language many people would appreciate view spoilerRiding the Red short rather strange take on Little Red Riding Hood Some assertion that grandma and the wolf are two sides of the same coin 3 starsMoney Tree Great story A little Caribbean folklore about greed and evolution and destiny 4 Stars S

    Paperback ´ Skin Folk PDF/EPUB µ skin epub, folk free, Skin Folk EpubNalo Hopkinson writes with an invigorating imagination and an impressive breadth of subject matter and approach These stories alternate between whimsy horror eroticism and modern interpretations of Caribbean folklore Not every story lands as well as the best of them but the best of them are wonderful

    Paperback ´ Skin Folk PDF/EPUB µ skin epub, folk free, Skin Folk EpubWhat an amazing collection of speculative short stories I almost loved this as much as Octavia Butler's collection Bloodchild which is the best sffantasy short story collection ever in my opinionFull review to come on Casey the Canadian Lesbrarian Here's the reviewI’ve really been spoilt by fantastic short story collections this summer and Skin Folk by Nalo Hopkinson is no exception When I say fantastic I mean it in than one sense these stories are remarkable especially wrapped as they are in Hopkinson’s slim but lively prose but they’re also fantastical some fairy tales some fantasy and some science fiction If you enjoy language that’s beautiful but gets to the point and surreal but sounds like real people “crinkling her face like running a fork through molasses”—you need to pick up Skin Folk In particula

    Paperback ´ Skin Folk PDF/EPUB µ skin epub, folk free, Skin Folk EpubPart of fantasy's appeal is that it takes you some place unfamiliar Yet Ursula Le Guin has rightly criticized the bias of much fantasy literature to assume that characters ought to be white and the world ought to look like medieval Europe Even contemporary fantasy reverts to the European fairy tale model so of

    Paperback ´ Skin Folk PDF/EPUB µ skin epub, folk free, Skin Folk EpubIt's hard for me to say whether the stories in this collection improved as I went along or whether it just took me a while to grow used to the rhythms of Hopkinson's prose The first five stories didn't do much for me I found Riding the Red difficult to follow Money Tree too obvious Something to Hitch Meat To rambling Snake cliched and Under Glass too high concept But then suddenly things started to click Slow Cold Chick and Chase both tell a story I've heard before but with unusual imagination and verve Greedy Choke Puppy satisfyingly mixes sweet and brutal Whose Upward Flight I Love was charming If I hadn't looked at the copyright page I'd conclude this was a case of Hopkinson growing as a writer but all of these stories were written in a fairly narrow span of time Regardless I'm glad I powered through the openers and made it to the meat

    Paperback ´ Skin Folk PDF/EPUB µ skin epub, folk free, Skin Folk EpubThis is a collection of fairy tale and folklore re tellings in a modern form True to the title the stories deal with characters who try to shed their skins or have to get accustomed to their skins in a metaphorical sense The contributions range from subtle to explicitly sexual from horror to SF in small amounts Each story is told in a daringly blunt voice each character is down to earth and authentic even the mystical ones Nalo Hopkinson's writing style is one I dearly love freed from prudery or embarrassingly flowery euphemisms when it comes to erotic passagesNot all stories hit the mark with me some were quite uncomfortable to read but not the worse for that I was just glad that I didn't eat while I was reading them but most of them had a satisfying take on the respective to
