Editorial Reviews

Review

Addison has enough invention for two writers, and enough heart for three. --Terry Bisson, Nebula Award winning author

With the eloquent simplicity of the writers of ancient earth tales, and the pop cleverness of modern-day fantasists, Linda Addison shares with the reader a collection from her very human, very mystical realm; images often tender, poignant, brutal, transcendent. --Elizabeth Massie, Bram Stoker Award winning author

Linda Addison pours heart and soul upon the page in her first collection. A freshet of poems, journal entries, and stories, this book shows the birth and early maturity of the author. --Paul De Filippo, Asimov's Science Fiction magazine --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

About the Author

Format: Paperback
A true flight of fantasy! Abandon logic when you open this book and just 'let it flow.' You'll love it's creativity. Follow the progression in the illustrations too.
An extra plus is the authoress' personal journal; this should be a requirement in all books.

From the poem Writing Magic:

Some writers choose just a scant few
to say a lifetime of feelings,

While other writers
gather thousands of words in a book
to paint a few days of one life...

Animated Objects is Linda D. Addison's debut offering. This is a mesmerizing mixture of poetry and short stories, fables and science fiction, enchanting fantasies and harsh realities. It will take you on a journey and touch you in places long forgotten or never experienced.

What makes this collection such a treasure is that Addison is such a skillful writer. She is able to be true to herself and her art form while turning the reader's interpretation into participation. Her words can be as gentle as a mother's hand, as sharp as a razor, as rough as a nail file and as blunt as a hammer.

This book has something for everybody without that being its purpose. A perfect example of the universal appeal of Animated Objects is the inclusion of bits and pieces of her personal journals that encompass twenty seven years of of hopes, trials and disasters.

Reading those snippets let's you see that which is usually hidden from the reader. You get to look past the writer as a person and instead get to look at the person as a writer. You get to peer into her world in a way that's as cryptic as the light of her Night Bird yet as forthcoming as the birth of one child and the miscarriage of another.

By A Customer on April 12, 1999
Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful collection of poems and short stories; a truly beautiful book. The works are thought-provoking and sometimes disturbing, and always handled deftly. Ms. Addison is a very fine writer, and Animated Objects belongs in the collections of dark fantasy readers everywhere.

Format: Hardcover
Author Addison masterfully manipulates words. Whether prose or poetry, the end result is a cut above the rest, in any genre. From her whimsical retelling of "Little Red Riding Hood" to her thought-provoking poetry, her words stay with you long after the book has been closed.
