Save on two magical releases this year in this duo deal!
Publication months: The Finery ships August 2023/The Naming of Moths November 2023
‘There had been a murder...’
Blurb: Tyranny is in the air in the city of Finer Bay, and Professor Wendowleen Cripcot would like to be left alone, thank you very much. The memories of the last one hundred years are quite enough to be getting on with, if only these young upstarts from the government body, The Finery, would stop trying to control her every move. With the eyes of a dictator upon her, there are not many places to hide...but Wendowleen has never been one to back down from a fight (just ask her pet wolf), and insurrection is brewing underground.
"With wry humour and vicious imagination, Grosvenor's debut compels us not to allow her nightmarish fantasy of a totalitarian police state to become reality." - Joe Bedford, Author of 'A Bad Decade for Good People', Parthian Books
The Naming of Moths by Tracy Fells (Short Stories)
Pre-order: Shipped to arrive on the 10th of November 2023
"A superb debut, The Naming of Moths explores monsters, mothers and myths, and the spaces where they cross over. Dark, sensual, often disquieting yet beautiful, these stories never fail to surprise. With an expert hand, Fells leads us beyond the fairytale to expose hearts that heal in the dark. A must read." - Angela Readman, author of The Girls are Pretty Crocodiles
"These stories will surprise, enthral, entertain and never disappoint. A collection that is subtle, full of incisive observation and darkly comic at times. All of life is here, in its pathos, humour and richness." - Reshma Ruia
Stories of myths, mothers and monsters.
THE NAMING OF MOTHS features stories of magical realism, myths and legends re-imagined, where all the characters are undergoing transformation or facing a pivotal moment of change in their lives. People and animals interchange their shapes. Story landscapes flit from fairy-tale woods to urban homes. Here love, hope and kindness weave between the realities of man’s endless talent for cruelty.
