    Commentaires

    "Kij Johnson's haunting novella The Dream-Quest of Vellitt Boe is both a commentary on a classic H.P. Lovecraft tale and a profound reflection on a woman's life. Vellitt's quest to find a former student who may be the only person who can save her community takes her through a world governed by a seemingly arbitrary dream logic in which she occasionally glimpses an underlying but mysterious order, a world ruled by capricious gods and populated by the creatures of dreams and nightmares. Those familiar with Lovecraft's work will travel through a fantasy landscape infused with Lovecraftian images viewed from another perspective, but even readers unfamiliar with his work will be enthralled by Vellitt's quest. A remarkable accomplishment that repays rereading." (Pamela Sargent, winner of the Nebula Award)

    Awesome Sci Fi

    Vellitt Boe is one of the coolest science fiction stories I've read/heard in a long time. Congrats to Kij Jonson for pulling this off! AWESOME!

    Sci Fi fantasy at its best

    I can see why Kij Johnson was nominated for a Hugo award. This book is so wonderfully imaginative and it feels like I've been there. Definitely one of the good ones.

    Excellent audiobook!

    Would you listen to The Dream-Quest of Vellitt Boe again? Why?

    Absolutely! This is a brilliant take on Lovecraft's "The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath." With Vellitt Boe, Kij Johnson was able to recreate the expansive wonder of the tale that inspired it. Absorbing and enjoyable.
