Redwood & Wildfire reviewed in the Village Voice

The release date for Andrea Hairston's new novel, Redwood and Wildfire is fast approaching. We're expecting a shipment of books to arrive here in Seattle soon; when they do, we'll be offering the novel through our website. Rest assured, I'll make the announcement here. In the meantime, though, the first review of the book has been published, in the Village Voice's online edition. It's by Carol Cooper, and though short, includes an excellent description of what the book is about. The review begins:
For some time now there's been hope that fresh directions in fantastic or speculative literature might come from black diasporic writers—that the world's next Tolkien or Heinlein might be brown or beige. With her second novel, Redwood and Wildfire, Andrea Hairston edges up alongside Minister Faust and Nnedi Okorafor to become a serious contender for that role.
