Casey Wolf (C. June Wolf) is the author of numerous speculative short stories. Several of these were collected as Finding Creatures & Other Stories, which also includes an introduction by Charles de Lint. Literary, science fictional, slipstream, and fantastic-this medley of stories is grounded in the present day, weaving backward to the life of Saint Francis, and forward to a time when Earth is a memory, and new humans are finding their place among the stars.

Wolf's unexpected approach to story telling interlaces humour, compassion, and a compelling affection for human and nonhuman with a fine-spun unorthodoxy in these understated tales of this world and beyond.

Review - 'I want this book to be a success because I want to look forward to reading more new stories by her for many years to come. And so should you.' - Charles De Lint, author of The Onion Girl and Dingo.

Review #2 - Wolf's people come alive on the page. She makes them to ache and to dream, to search and sometimes find. They slip through the unseen hinges of life, to emerge into other times, other realms, other skins. And she makes all this happen in a way that draws the reader to follow them. Rich, ripe stuff, with haunting echo of Ray Bradbury's October moods. - Matt Hughes, author of The tales of Henghis Hapthorn.
