“Without Eileen Gunn, life as we know it would be so dull, we wouldn’t recognize it. Among the five or six North Americans currently able to write short stories, she has not written anywhere near enough.”
—Ursula K. Le Guin

“If ‘umami’ described how stories feel in your mind instead of how food tastes, I would say everything Eileen does is infused with umami.”
Nisi Shawl
