“It’s a fine example of expert-level dialog. Van Belkom’s a first-rate interviewer in that he asks the right questions to trigger solid answers, and he never intrudes as the interviewees make real progress in disclosing their own personalities […] NORTHERN DREAMERS deserves high praise for both its entertainment and reference value.”


“Hearing these writers talk about themselves offers an interesting perspective on their work. Suitable for academic collections on criticism of genre fiction.”
