Aurealis magazine reviews cat rambo’s carpe glitter

We were so pleased to read the review of Cat Rambo’s CARPE GLITTER (a nebula finalist!!) by Damien Lawardorn in the latest Aurealis Magazine (issue #127). We have shared an excerpt below but hope you’ll check out the full review in the magazine, which also always has a wonderful selection of fiction and non-fiction.

Carpe Glitter is one of those stories where an absent character is the most memorable. The grandmother, Gloria Aim (once a famed stage magician), looms over the text, haunting the hallways and the family’s history alike. Gloria’s powerful nonpresence dominates the story. A part of this comes from her role as the agent of dispute between three generations of women.

NB Magazine Gives Cat Rambo’s Carpe Glitter 5 Stars

We were thrilled to see Cat Rambo’s CARPE GLITTER get 5 huge stars at NB Magazine! We hope you’ll take a minute to read the full review.

I found this story a revelatory joy to read and especially loved the various ways in which the author combined numerous fantasy elements and dark humour with an exploration of complex family relationships. In a psychologically convincing way, and with well-depicted characters, she demonstrated how, following a death, secrets will often emerge which enable survivors to make better sense of their history.
