‘Lisa Tuttle never disappoints’ George R.R. Martin

An exclusive short story from the author of THE MYSTERIES and THE SILVER BOUGH.

A working wife and mother longs for more time to write, then finds a hidden room where her wish is granted, where she can work undisturbed in a place out of time…


Tuttle is a sweet relief. By the time it was over I was so thoroughly violated that I needed to scrub my brain with steel wool . . . Tuttle's books are messy and chaotic. They feel desperate. They feel human. They feel like real life.
Grady Hendrix, Tor.com

Time Out on Lisa Tuttle
Lisa Tuttle has quietly been writing remarkable, chilling short stories and powerful, haunting novels for many years now, and doing it so easily and so well that one almost takes it, and her, for granted. This would be as big a mistake as not reading Lisa Tuttle
Neil Gaiman
Lisa Tuttle is a subtle and clever writer whose fantasy deals with the world we all believe we have sensed from time to time out of the corners of our eyes.
Michael Moorcock
