Editorial Reviews

Review


"'Looking Through Lace' by Ruth Nestvold is terrific science fiction. I want to read more of this writer's stories."
- Andi Shechter in January Magazine


"... 'Looking Through Lace' by Ruth Nestvold [is] an intelligent, complexstory illustrating the difficulties of learning and understanding thenuances and intricacies of an alien language and culture, particularlyone so similar to our own that we persist in viewing it (wrongly) on our terms.... The reason ... why there are so many differences between thelanguages of both men and women are logical and well thought out, andthe final revelation about the true nature of the relationship betweenthe women and the men comes as a nice twist."

- Phil Friel in Tangent Online


"Two strong stories stand out from the rest of the fiction. Ruth Nestvold's'Looking Through Lace' rests on a relatively simple reversal or secret,but the rest of it is solidly written and convincing. The main character is a young female xenolinguist named Toni -- she is called to a planetnamed Christmas to study the Mejan culture. Nestvold presents a neatpuzzle, and she takes the time to present it just-so."

- James Schellenberg in Challenging Destiny
