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.

Author's Choice Monthly: Daily Voices

A sadly out-of-print collection…but all of the stories contained in this book can be found in Travellers In Magic.


[Goldstein] has given us the kind of magic and adventure that once upon a time made us look for secret panels in the walls of our wardrobes, or brush our teeth with a book held in front of our eyes, because we couldn't bear to put it down.
