Review quote

"Velocities is prime Kathe Koja, with all that that entails: supercharged, dense as hell, oblique, glorious. Every story is a lesson in how to write faster, more intensely, from angles other people never seem to think of: industrial poetry, word mosaics like insect eyes, multifoliate as the insides of flowers, every image a scattered, burrowing seed, spreading narrative like a disease. I've loved her work since long before I ever aspired to produce anything like it--in fact, I'm still not sure anyone else is capable of doing what she does, of coming close, let alone hitting the mark. But damn, it's equally so much fun to admire the result as it is to even vaguely try." --Gemma Files, award-winning author of Spectral Evidence
