Praise for REQUIEM DUET, CONCERTO FOR FLUTE AND VOODOO:
Eugie Foster is one of the best writers of speculative short fiction currently working. She has great facility for language and structure, an ability to see beauty and terror in equal measure, and consistently crafts stories that are both harrowing and satisfying…‘Requiem Duet, Concerto for Flute and Voodoo’…is a story about friendship and grief, about losing your heart to find it…You may cry at the end. You’ll be glad you read it.
—Kat Howard, Fantasy Matters
…a well-written and intriguing story, Foster’s skill as a writer draws the reader in to the emotional worlds of the characters. In short fiction it is often difficult for readers to have enough invested in the characters to care about them but Foster accomplishes this flawlessly.
—Michael K. Rose, Myriad Spheres
If “Requiem” is any indication on how well [Eugie Foster] writes, you can expect several more awards to come her way in the near future. The story was just plain dynamite. It is the best Friday story I have read at DSF yet. Recommended.
