Once Upon a Time...,
This review is from: Susan Burnstine: Within Shadows (Hardcover)
Once upon a time there was a girl who lived in a treehouse in a canyon... she was enraptured by her dreams, but disturbed by their fleeting, ethereal nature... she wanted to hold them, make them manifest... to this end she became a tinkerer, an inventor, a builder... from bits and pieces and scraps and parts she made her own machines, strange steampunk contraptions, capable of capturing her dreams and making them discernible in the light of day, for herself (and everyone else) to examine...
Does this sound like a story pitch for a fantasy film...? Think again - with her new book, Susan Burnstine has followed the course laid out above... and she has given us her dreams, held fast through ink on paper, each one now sent out into the world to take on a life of its own, outside of her soul and psyche....
