Kelly Link is one of the most important new writers in American fiction. Her work crosses boundaries between science-fiction, horror, and mainstream.
That's news to me.
So I went to wikipedia: Kelly Link.
And there I found a link to a free ebook (scroll down for the free part), Stranger Things Happen. (It also raised a question in my mind: Why the hell hasn't anyone converted it to Sony Reader format?)
Anyway, I still don't really know who she is. I guess that's because she's done mostly short stories and I tend to stick to novels.
But I've got her ebook. Well, the Endless Unarranged Backlog does.
