Filter House

Filter House collects the short fiction by Nisi Shawl and includes an introduction by Eileen Gunn (author of Stable Strategies). The collection’s fourteen tales offer a haunting montage that works its magic subtly on the reader’s subconscious. As Karen Joy Fowler, author of The Jane Austen Book Club says, “This lovely collection will take you, like a magic carpet, to some strange and wonderful places.” Three of the stories are original to the volume. Eminent novelist and critic Ursula K. Le Guin writes: “From the exotic, baroque complexities of ‘At the Huts of Ajala’ to the stark, folktale purity of ‘The Beads of Ku,’ these fourteen superbly written stories will weave around you a ring of dark, dark magic.” Matt Ruff, author of Set This House In Order and Bad Monkeys calls Filter House “A traveling story-bazaar, offering treasures and curios from diverse lands of wonder.” Eileen Gunn, author of Stable Strategies, concurs that these are “Remarkably involving stories that pull you along a path of wonder, word by word, in worlds where everything is a bit different.”
