Review: The Rise of Ransom City by Felix Gilman
Over at Strange Horizons, I review Felix Gilman's The Rise of Ransom City, following up on my review of the first volume in (what I assume is) this duology, The Half-Made World. I enjoyed The Rise of Ransom City very much (it was even on my Hugo ballot) and there's a lot that Gilman is doing that I don't think anyone else currently writing fantasy is interested in, which I hope to write more about in the near future. But nevertheless, there are problems with this sequence, and the way it fantasizes American Western expansion, that can't be ignored.
