Praise for "Your Cat & Other Space Aliens"

"A wild and crazy mix of everyday life, cats with attitude, cats with dialects, cats with a sex life jumbled in with heaven, hospitals, racoons--anything in the natural world is fair game here—makes this collection a fantasy seekers' delight."
Laura Kennelly

"A marvelous, sometimes humorous, often jolting collection conjured in various forms from Turzillo’s multi-faceted perspective."
Marge Simon

“With wit, verve, eccentricity, and brilliance, Turzillo uses her poetry to spin intense tales that portray the dynamics of both personal and familial relationships. . . This is a superbly rich collection of speculative poetry.”
Bruce Boston


Praise for "Dragon Soup"

"Dragon Soup is a captivating combination of prose, verse and art. Enter this world of dragons and you will be entertained with a delightful, frightening, humorous and thought-provoking experience."
-Jill Bauman, artist and illustrator,
Mary Turzillo's novelette Mars Is no Place for Children won the 1999 Nebula, and her story "Pride" was a finalist for the 2007 Nebula. Her first novel, An Old-Fashioned Martian Girl, appeared in Analog. Publishing in Asimov's, F & SF, Interzone, SF Age, Weird Tales, Oceans of the Mind, and Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet, she has over a hundred poems and stories in print, plus a chapbook, "Galileo's Blindness" and "Ewaipanoma," a tale of forbiddeen love and alien contact in the time of Shakespeare. Two poems from Your Cat and Other Space Aliens, "Snow after False Spring" and "We Made Poetry" have been nominated for the 2008 Rhysling Award.

She founded Cajun Sushi Hamsters and taught in NASA's Science through Arts.

Her favorite people include her son, Jack Brizzi, Jr., and her husband, writer-scientist Geoffrey A. Landis. Her cats claim that her fascination with the color turquoise is evidence of a forgotten adventure on an alien spaceship.
