    Ooooooooooh, Emilie and the Hollow World coming up soon, too? March and April are turning out to be extra good reading months.

    Emilie & the Hollow World sounds great. I added it to my list. I’ll be interested in your review of Deerskin. I read it years ago. Disturbing? Yes.

    I’m not familiar with the Thousandfurs tale by the Brothers Grimm but find it unsurprising it’s disturbing. So many of the original old fairy tales are.

    As always, I’m looking forward to your reviews.
