On Trouble and Her Friends

Strange Horizons has posted my review of Melissa Scott's Trouble and Her Friends, recently re-issued by Tor. I went in expecting to love the book, or at least enjoy it, because my admiration for the novel Scott published after Trouble, Shadow Man, is boundless. (I've called it "one of the great science fiction novels of the past 25 years," and I do believe that.) Unfortunately, and much to my sadness, I didn't think Trouble and Her Friends has survived the years quite as well.
