The Grantville Gazette, 82
“One of the finest stories we have ever published. “Sh/ft,” by JD Jordan is a terrific exploration of Hopi myth, Hopi reality, and a young woman trapped between the two. It is a sure nominee for Best of the Gazette 2019 next year, and if enough people like it, a worthy nominee for the Nebulas, Hugos, and Dragon awards.”
— Walt Boyes, editor, The Grantville Gazette
