I’m back at Strange Horizons this week, with a review of Nina Allan’s latest novel, The Dollmaker.
Nina is a long-time friend of this blog, and one of the authors I’ve written about most often – but never quite at this length. It was a pleasure to spend time thinking through The Dollmaker: on the surface, the novel is about a maker and collector of dolls paying a surprise visit to a correspondent, but it also explores how lives lived beside each other can be as distant as parallel worlds.

The Dollmaker (2019) is published by riverrun in the UK and Other Press in the US.

Ive heard nothing but positive reactions to this novel so will just have to find some space in the wardrobe to fit it in….
