It's one of the most dreamlike and far-flung settings in contemporary fantasy, and it's netted Samatar a World Fantasy Award, a British Fantasy Award, and the John W. Campbell Award. But in Tender, Samatar's debut collection of short stories, she doesn't stray so far afield. Instead, the majority of the book's twenty sumptuous tales takes place here on E
