Asimov’s likes Up The Rainbow

casper rainbow thumbnailThe January/February 2018 issue of Analog Science Fiction and Fact includes Don Sakers’ review of Up the Rainbow: The Complete Short Fiction of Susan Casper (which Fantastic Books published last summer). Don says, in part, “It’s entirely possible that you’re not familiar with the work of Susan Casper.… Still, if you ran across one of her tales, you weren’t likely to forget it. She specialized in quick little stories about very ordinary people confronted by distinctly odd situations, or looking at familiar situations from an odd angle.… This isn’t a book to read in one sitting. Rather, take your time. There’s a lot of variety here.… [Casper] wrote witty and informative reports of her travels… [the book includes] seven of these reports, which provide a delightful glimpse into the world of this fascinating woman.”
