It’s official! My collection A Feast of Sorrow: Stories will be published by Prime Books this coming October! Thanks to Sean Wallace and Paula Guran for saying ‘yes’, and to Theodora Goss for agreeing to write the Introduction!
It’s made up mostly of reprints BUT there will be two brand spanking new, never before seen novellas in there too: “Darker Angels” and “The Tallow-Wife”.
And the cover is gorgeous – I remain very lucky with my covers!
A Feast of Sorrows—Angela Slatter’s first U.S. collection—features twelve of the World Fantasy and British Fantasy Award-winning Australian author’s finest, darkest fairy tales, and adds two new novellas to her marvelous cauldron of fiction. Stories peopled by women and girls—fearless, frightened, brave, bold, frail, and fantastical—who take the paths less traveled by, accept (and offer) poisoned apples, and embrace transformation in all its forms. Reminiscent of Angela Carter at her best, Slatter’s work is both timeless and fresh: fascinating new reflections from the enchanted mirrors of fairy tales and folklore.
