Preorder: The Tallow-Wife and Other Tales

Yes! At long last (my fault entirely) The Tallow-Wife and Other Tales is available for preorder from Tartarus Press. The words are by me, the art by Kathleen Jennings and the very lovely introduction by Helen Marshall.

This is the hardcover limited edition with the embossed, foil cover – there’s an ebook version (and a paperback likely), but there are only ever going to be 350 of these beauties … 

‘Once upon a time when wishing still helped . . .’

Return to the dreaming streets of the cathedral-city of Lodellan, where a new generation of characters face fairy tales and nightmares. Cordelia Parsifal has an enviable life, hard won, but the ghosts of the past are soon to remind her that no sin or omission goes unnoticed. Slumbering saints awake, hind-girls dance, boys become bears, and the fate of the upper- and under-earths rests on the whim of a single, volatile creature.

Also, for those who are interested: The Tallow-Wife has a couple of links to the forthcoming novel All the Murmuring Bones (Titan Books) – published under A.G. Slatter. You can absolutely read one without the other – but why would you say “no” to an adventure (Bilbo)?

And! For a free novelette in ebook form, you can go to Brain Jar Press and download No Good Deed, about the ancestress of Cordelia and Bethany Lawrence – and which contains a previously unpublished Sourdough chronology. Just saying.
