New Book from a Critter Member**NOW IN PRINT EDITION TOO!** Awesome new book, HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR SPECULATIVE FICTION OPENINGS, from a Critter member whose unearthed a shard of The Secret to becoming a pro writer. Really good piece of work. "...if you're at all concerned about story openings, you'd be nuts not to read what Qualkinbush has to say." —Wil McCarthy, author of BLOOM and THE COLLAPSIUM
The Sigil TrilogyIf you're looking for an amazing, WOW! science fiction story, check out THE SIGIL TRILOGY. This is — literally — one of the best science fiction novels I've ever read.

I enjoyed this story because it is really for all ages. It is a message of kindness.It is a story of civility and friendship. This is a presentation of life's lessons.
Wonderfully creative imagination, vibrant spirit.
The girls loved it. Had it been available in Spanish I would have purchased that version. The two 11 yo. cousins, one proficient in Spanish, the other one not so much but proud of her progress, would have had so much fun reading it together , Beautifully illustrated.
Bought this book to preview for my 10 year old granddaughter. Expected it to be a lovely story, but it is SO much more! The value of community, diversity and differences, disability and strength, the importance of listening, the need for empathy and compassion, but also boundaries. Learning to trust one another and the responsibility of earning that trust. The importance of being grateful and believing in something bigger. All that and so much more, in a well written and completely original tale, delivered in bite sized chapters that draw you back to the story. I highly recommend this wonderful book.
