Winterlong - Elizabeth Hand This is the first book I read by Elizabeth Hand. I was totally blindsided by it. Her vision of the end of the world as we know it and what takes its place reads like a waking dream. All sorts of strange things inhibit these pages. Intelligent Chimps, autustic prophets, decadent, intellectual societies. There are also feral children, augmented killer dogs and scattered deadly war zones. What a trip. it has been many years since I read this and I still remember my sympathy for Miss Scarlett, the Shakespeare performing chimp that believed science would make her whole.
