Abstract:

Winner of the 2002 World Fantasy Award for Best Collection: A beguiling compendium of fifteen stories In Skin Folk, with works ranging from science fiction to Caribbean folklore, passionate love to chilling horror, Nalo Hopkinson is at her award-winning best spinning tales like & ldquo;Precious, & rdquo; in which the narrator spews valuable coins and gems from her mouth whenever she attempts to talk or sing. In & ldquo;A Habit of Waste, & rdquo; a self-conscious woman undergoes elective surgery to alter her appearance; days later she & rsquo;s shocked to see her former body climbing onto a public bus. In & ldquo;The Glass Bottle Trick, & rdquo; the young protagonist ignores her intuition regarding her new husband & rsquo;s superstitions & mdash;to horrifying consequences. Hopkinson & rsquo;s unique and vibrant sense of pacing and dialogue sets a steady beat for stories that illustrate why she received the 1999 John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer. Entertaining, challenging, and alluring, Skin Folk is not to be missed.
