Re: Tartarus Contemporary Fiction Series

Nike Sulway's Rupetta, which Tartarus published about a year ago, has won the James Tiptree, Jr. Award, "an annual literary prize for science fiction or fantasy that expands or explores our understanding of gender."

Re: Tartarus Contemporary Fiction Series

This looks magnificent!

The Bitterwood Bible and other recountings by Angela Slatter Introduction by Stephen Jones Afterword by Lisa L. Hannett Illustrated by Kathleen Jennings To be published 1st September 2014 Welcome back to the magic and pathos of Angela Slatter’s exquisitely imagined tales.
The Bitterwood Bible and Other Recountings returns to the world of Sourdough and Other Stories (Tartarus, 2010), introducing readers to the tales that came before. Stories where coffin-makers work hard to keep the dead beneath; where a plague maiden steals away the children of an ungrateful village; where poison girls are schooled in the art of assassination; where pirates disappear from the seas; where families and the ties that bind them can both ruin and resurrect and where books carry forth fairy tales, forbidden knowledge and dangerous secrets.

The Bitterwood Bible and Other Recountings is enhanced by eighty-six pen-and-ink illustrations by artist Kathleen Jennings.
Contains: 'Author’s Note', 'Introduction' by Stephen Jones, 'The Coffin-Maker’s Daughter', 'The Maiden in the Ice', 'The Badger Bride', 'The Burnt Moon', 'By My Voice I Shall Be Known', 'The Undone and the Divine', 'The Night Stair', 'Now, All Pirates are Gone', 'St Dymphna’s School for Poison Girls', 'The Bitterwood Bible', 'Terrible as an Army with Banners', 'By the Weeping Gate', 'Spells for Coming Forth by Daylight', 'Afterword' by Lisa L. Hannett, 'Acknowledgements'.
The Bitterwood Bible and Other Recountings is a sewn hardback of 220 pages, printed lithographically, with decorated boards, silk ribbon marker, head and tailbands, and d/w.

ISBN 978-1-905784-65-3

Limited edition hardback price £35 inc. p&p. Ebook price £3.50 (Please note that the ebook will be sent manually, so there may be a short delay in receiving it.) E-books and limited edition hardbacks will be available from 1st september. Pre-orders are being taken:

Re: Tartarus Contemporary Fiction Series

I'd like to give a shoutout to Tartarus Press for their fine and extremely affordable ebook series. I do prefer having the actual volumes in my hands, but a lot of the time I simply can't afford much, international shipping costs considered. So I'm really grateful when publishers decide to put out cheaper digital editions (and not making them unavailable to foreigners, as others publishers do), and even more so when it's titles they no longer have in stock and could only be acquired second-hand at ridiculously inflated prices. So, a heartfelt Thank You from this foreign poor reader. Thank you Tartarus.

As my finances allow it I'll see about acquiring the actual volumes of the books I've enjoyed. And there's been quite a few from Tartarus! They certainly know how to spot quality material.

Re: Tartarus Contemporary Fiction Series

I am currently reviewing Rhys Hughes' ORPHEUS ON THE UNDERGROUND: https://dflewisreviews.wordpress.com...e-underground/

Forgive me if I misremember, but I think Tartarus Press published this author's first book in the 1990s. I certainly own the early Tartarus editions of Rhys Hughes. from that period
