The Fox Woman Reviews


""The Fox Woman is a wonderfully evocative and gripping novel, a book that will stay with you and resonate in your heart long after the final page is turned." --Charles de Lint
""The Fox Woman is a magnificent book, powerfully and profoundly moving, in its moods and atmosphere, utterly magical, a genuine and unique work of high art. And all of this expressed through language that is elegant, economical, graceful. "The Fox Woman immediately sets the author in the front rank of today's novelists." --Lloyd Alexander
"If you want lush prose, romantic settings, and a poetry-of-the-soul book, run--do not walk--to get this. God, I wish I had written it!" --Jane Yolen
"Kij Johnson reminds us that the magic (and strength) of Fantasy is seeing ourselves in the mirror of the Other. Never has that mirror shimmered more seductively. Look." --Terry Bisson
"Lush, vivid, and charming, "The Fox Woman is a beautifully written and poignant fable unlike any other fantasy I have ever read." --Kevin J. Anderson
"I enjoyed presenting to Kij Johnson the Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award for her short story 'The Fox Woman, ' but I enjoyed even more reading the novel she has created around the Japanese myth of the fox who falls in love with a nobleman and becomes a woman. It is wise, witty, and wonderful." --James Gunn
