In an age when every new novel seems to have the sticky texture of derivation, Tina Lear has conjured StoryEarth, a fresh new place in our literary universe. Full of humor and tragedy, it is wonderfully rich, particular, and distinct, yet its underpinnings are timeless and universal truths.
-Mark Spencer, Author of An Untimely Frost, [Moonshine Cove Publishing, 2019]
