Review for Psychic Surgery:
Magical. Enchanting. I enjoyed this unique collection of stories with characters that don't conform to the same old tired tropes. In particular, I delighted especially in some of the phrases that painted instant pictures in my mind:
“the green of honeyed sunlight”
“The battered booths and tables filled with sinners ready to fall”
“cracks of age spider over his features”
“the sun worried at the edges”
I love when words make me “see” the story with such clarity.

This novella had only one problem -- it was a novella and I wanted more. Not that the author didn't do a fantastic job with the world-building and story arc. I just was not ready for it to end. Martha Allard's voice is strong, confident, and unique, and I love Frank, the main character--a fallen angel running a dive bar. Waiting impatiently for Part Two!
