Editorial Reviews

“. . . [T]he best of what I look for in diverse speculative fiction: imaginative stories that engage with a range of ideas, emotions, and tropes from non-Western sources.”


"With Ajjiit, husband-and-wife team Sean A. Tinsley and Rachel A. Qitsualik...have employed traditional Inuit tales to create a collection of dark fantasy stories that provides readers with a breath of fresh Arctic air"

— Quill & Quire

“[Ajjiit] is a wonderfully phantasmagoric collection of fantasy tales inspired by traditional Inuit stories of transformation and struggle . . . . This is a collection about what it means to be human, about the innua or core spirit that lies beneath the social masks of all animals and spirits in the Arctic.”
