    She memorably disparaged science fiction as “talking squids in outer space,” as opposed to her own writing, which could never, ever, no possibility of even thinking it could be, science fiction. The horror. (Not what she said, btw, when I met her more than 30 years ago.)

    “Death By Landscape” is so very much a work of science fiction though. She’s an amazing talent.
