Review quote

"New Worlds is an essential worldbuilding reference for writers of speculative fiction. Marie Brennan's deep love and knowledge of cultures around the world makes her eminently qualified to guide us through some of the lesser-known (and lesser thought-of) parts of human behavior. More than once I stopped reading, struck by one observation or another, and said, 'Wow, that would make a great story.' Highly recommended." -- Christopher Paolini, author of The Inheritance Cycle
