I like pretty things

Rachel Pollack -- Unquenchable Fire/Temporary Agency (Fantasy) * * * *

So I read Rachel Pollack's short story in a recent Sci-Fi and Fantasy magazine, and loved her writing so much that I looked her up in Amazon. I got the 2 books used since they're out of print. She also seems to be a pretty big authority on Tarot.

Unquenchable Fire and Temporary Agency are two books, based on "Spiritually Liberated" America. So where rituals, and prayers and mythology is part of everyday life. It is fascinating.. she does tell lots of short stories in there, which was a bit too much for me, since I prefer a more seamless fiction. 

Anyways, it's definitely one of the more original Fantasy series I've read in a long time. And I definitely recommend it to you Fantasy lovers.
