“If Julie C. Day was a singer she’d have a five-octave range. This is a collection of astonishing variety and power. She is one of those alchemists of the short story who offers uncomplicated engagement, while provoking knotty thoughts and mutable responses. This is not merely a promising debut, it is simply astonishing.”
–Interzone 277 Collection Review
"You never know what or who you might encounter in a story by Day, or how the everyday world will be twisted and turned into something new, eerie, and unsettling, but then, that’s exactly what makes this collection so very good."
–Maria Haskins Collection Review
My favorite Amazon review so far included the following gem.
"Edgy, feminist, and mysterious, Day's collection has the literary feel of Margaret Atwood and the spec fic sensibility of Cat Valente."
My favorite Goodreads review made me want to roll around on the floor with glee.
"UNCOMMON MIRACLES is one of those books you slow down in the middle of, because you can almost >taste< the odd, are compelled to roll it around in your mouth. "Speculative" is definitely the word, because you spend a long time afterwards thinking on the strange devices (ghosts and photos, creating portals through trash), but also the kinds of loneliness and desperation that can co-exist with love. There's beautiful language here, and striking images, even as things go sideways or into dark corners. And they do tend to stray to dark corners."
Small press means any help getting the word out is appreciated!
