i love books HP

Book Review: Inferno, edited by Ellen Datlow

Note: I met Ellen last year, very briefly, at Capclave. I believe the extent of our conversation was something to the effect of:
Emily: "I really enjoyed that question and answer you just did with Jeffrey Ford. It was fun!"
Ellen: "Thanks!"

Since then, we've become LiveJournal friends, as Ellen is lovely and always posts interesting things. Every now and then Ellen gives away 5 or so of her books, on the condition that the recipients blog their opinions of the books, whether those opinions be good, bad, or indifferent. That's how I received the book I'm about to review. I should note that I would have mentioned it even if she hadn't specifically asked me to, though, because it's great.

P.S. I've tried not to include any spoilers below.
