The Scarlet Rider book. To further explore Sussex's ouvere, I would recommend her collections of shorter fiction, with an eye to such gems as La Sentinelle (another Ditmar and Aurealis winner, showcasing her ability to enchant the present with history) and the chilling The Revenant, (which makes one think that perhaps Mel got off easy in her encounters with the dead). But The Scarlet Rider is the point not only to begin or expand your appreciation of this author, but of an overlooked fragment of time. Oct 30, 2013 Wolverina rated it liked it.
