Ellen Klages “Passing Strange” (Tor.com, 2017)
This is not a book to come to if you are expecting a typical Urban Fantasy. Sure, it’s set in San Francisco, and it has some magic, but it is NOT UF.
This is really a fantasy adjacent novella. One that is more concerned with the normal lives of a group of women living in SF than any sort of traditional fantasy plot.
Please don’t think that a knock on this piece. It is absolutely not! This is a wonderfully written novella that despite its short length creates some memorable characters and some great emotional moments. I highly recommend it.
