Weighing Shadows

Weighing Shadows shimmers with intelligence and intrigue. It is that rare phenomenon: a science-fiction novel that faces squarely the hard trade-offs between compassion and self-preservation. This is story-telling at its best.

The Uncertain Places

Goldstein's complex and ingenious plot transplants the forest realm of European folktale, which witches grant wishes with strings attached and you'd better be careful which frog you kiss, into the sun-drenched hills of Northern California in the 1970s — and beyond.
