Can’t-Wait Wednesday: Sooner or Later Everything Falls Into the Sea by Sarah Pinsker

Can’t-Wait Wednesday, aka Waiting on Wednesday, is a weekly meme originating from Jill at Breaking the Spine and now hosted by Wishful Endings. If you’re interested in participating, stop by Wishful Endings to link up your posts.

solefits-coverThis is one of the most anticipated sf&f collections of recent years. Pinsker has shot like a star across the firmament with stories nominated for multiple awards and Sturgeon and Nebula award wins.

The baker’s dozen stories gathered here (including a new, previously unpublished story) turn readers into travelers to the past, the future, and explorers of the weirder points of the present. The journey is the thing as Pinsker weaves music, memory, technology, history, mystery, love, loss, and even multiple selves on generation ships and cruise ships, on highways and high seas, in murder houses and treehouses. They feature runaways, fiddle-playing astronauts, and retired time travelers; they are weird, wired, hopeful, haunting, and deeply human. They are often described as beautiful but Pinsker also knows that the heart wants what the heart wants and that is not always right, or easy.


Another collection that I’m really looking forward to! Also, isn’t that cover amazing? Love it. Sooner or Later Everything Falls into the Sea comes out March 19th 2019 from Small Beer Press.

    Yeah, I’m avoiding short story collections – I’m always so optimistic but they never quite work out for me – or worse, I keep putting off reading them which feels very unfair if I’ve requested a copy. Lovely cover and I hope the content is every bit as good.
