Vermilion by Molly Tanzer is one of my favorite reads of 2015 in the 2015 novels category. Subtitled “The Adventures of Lou Meriwether, Psychopomp,” Vermilion was published by Word Horde, and was a breakout release, getting great reviews and positive word-of-mouth from what seemed like every direction, all year. You know, raves from NPR, Publishers Weekly, and so on.
On Goodreads I wrote:
A very accomplished novel, especially for a debut. Vermilion is fun, charming and engaging throughout. Lou Merriwether brings to mind one of my all-time favorite TV characters, Calamity Jane from Deadwood. I love every character and setting here, and want to see more. Here’s hoping Molly Tanzer gives us many more like this!
