Ventriloquism

£300.00

Product description

A very rare, limited print. 17 of 100 signed, boxed copies.

A beautiful unread edition in presentation box. As new apart from bottom left corner of box where the two boards have come apart slightly. Internally clean and bright.

In this, her first story collection, six years of multi-award winning Catherynne M. Valente’s acclaimed short fiction comes together n a single volume. From Mars to ancient India, from the interstellar deeps to post-ward Leningrad, from selkies and gingerbread houses to zombies to noir detectives and video games that never were, these stories leap from genre to genre, voice to voice, outer reaches to inner hearts. Here you will find strange secret histories, back-alley deals between steampunk and pirate stories, between fairy tales and moon colonies, Antarctic cartographers and interplanetary documentary filmmakers. Here an author throws her voice – and a family of strange dolls speaks, as if by magic.
