  1. I agree with you 100% that Running Upon the Wires isn’t Tempest’s strongest collection. I enjoyed the same things that you did – reading about queer love and her usual deft turns of phrase – but I didn’t find the collection nearly as impressive as Hold Your Own, which is one of my all-time favorite poetry collections. This has reminded me that I really must read their novel at some point.

    Infidel sounds fascinating. It definitely sounds like it’s worth checking out, even if it isn’t a perfect read. Great reviews!

    • Thank you! Same here, I’ve loved Tempest’s poetry and nonfiction, so I really should give their fiction a go soon!

      I discovered Infidel at random when I was on a horror kick and I’m really glad I did. It’s not easy to blend horror with social commentary but I think they did a good job.
