her Novels are brilliant (always best to start with her first, "Silk"). And her short story collections are fantastic (by far, I think this one is the best:
which you'll note has a 5 star review on Amazon (from 10 different folks).
her run on "the Dreaming" following Gaiman (who hand picked her) was quite good too.
(and if you've never heard of her prior to this, look at her Wiki entry, I'm sure you'll find her fascinating. I met her over a dozen years ago at Dragon*con -introduced to her by mutual friends, and was immediately taken.
we spent an evening hanging out with Johnen Vasquez (who pretended to be her on a panel she slept thru one morning), and tossing Tombstone frozen pizzas from the top floor of the Marriott -- yeah, for some reason, that year the Stormtroopers were handing out pizzas. . so of course, we immediately took ours to the top floor over the atrium and played frizbee)

Picked this up solely due to the interesting cover.
The actual issue was really quite good, and I've now added the title to my pull list at my LCS.

Was a-lurkin' and just felt like giving this a bump to promote John Arcudi's The Creep, his new noir piece where he's assisted impeccably by Jonathan Case on artwork. For any uninitiated, it's set in the late 1980's, and revolves around Oxel Karnhus: a PI-- based very much on B-actor golden god Rondo Hatton-- with acromegaly who's approached out of the blue by an old flame from his college days (before his condition). She wishes to know about her teenage son's mysterious suicide, and Oxel seems to be all the she can turn to. He knows it can't possibly lead anywhere good, but takes the job, because... well, even he's not too clear why.
Haunting, yet still compassionate stuff. The first two issues are available right now (#0 & #1).
