A. DEBORAH BAKER is a pen-name of SEANAN McGUIRE, the author of the Hugo, Nebula, Alex and Locus Award-winning Wayward Children series, the October Daye series, the InCryptid series, and other works. She also writes darker fiction as Mira Grant. Seanan lives in Seattle with her cats, a vast collection of creepy dolls, horror movies, and sufficient books to qualify her as a fire hazard. She won the 2010 John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer, and in 2013 became the first person to appear five times on the same Hugo ballot.
With lyrical prose and deep stores of emotion, this grown-up fairy tale works on every level. --Publishers Weekly starred review A peculiar but often profound piece of metafiction whose emotional landscape offers more riches than its physical one. --Kirkus Reviews More praise for the author Has an uncanny knack for taking the worst things that lurk in the shadows and weaving them into an absolute delight.--Becky Chambers on Middlegame A mini-masterpiece of portal fantasy--a jewel of a book that deserves to be shelved with Lewis Carroll's and C. S. Lewis' classics--NPR on Every Heart a Doorway One of the smartest writers around.--Charlaine Harris on Every Heart a Doorway
