Sourdough & Other Stories

I love getting books in the post. I particularly love getting beautiful books in the post. Look what arrived today:

This is what it looks like under the dust jacket:

Oh yes, that is one fucking beautiful book. It’s also from a print run limited to 300 copies. And it’s a collection of short stories by the incredibly talented and generally wonderful Angela Slatter. It’s basically a giant wad of awesome, dripping in awesome sauce. I can’t wait to read it. I’ll also be schlepping it down to Worldcon to make sure I get it signed by Angela, just to add that cherry of awesome on top.

I have to give full marks to Tartarus Press, that published this lovely tome. It’s great to see that people are still making the effort to produce books that are not only full of the author’s art, but are works of art in themselves.

You might still be lucky enough to score a copy of this, if any of the 300 are left. I expect there’ll be a paperback run once the hardbacks run out, which will still be worth your time and money, because it’s still full of Angela’s stories. But if you’re interested, follow the link below and try to secure your copy of this piece of beauty while there’s still time.

Sourdough & other stories by Angela Slatter, With an Introduction by Robert Shearman and an Afterword by Jeff VanderMeer, from Tartarus Press.

  1. I love how heavy the book is, and the paper even smells good.

    You know, if there was ever a book to buy as an honest-to-goodness, will-go-up-in-value investment, this might be the one.

    That’s my tip from the market, now back to Alan in the studio…

  2. It’s a mighty impressive tome. I really love the work on the cloth. And the stories are magnificent.

    Also, if the fine folks at Tartarus do sell out, they’ve sent me a dozen to sell for them at worldcon. So you *can* get your second copy!

  3. Looking forward to seeing it alongside Russell’s “The Girl With No Hands”

    *cough, cough* when are you posting? *cough, cough* impatiently waiting *cough, cough*

  4. Hi, Daniel. The super-duper swanky hardcovers are still in transit, and I’m expecting to find them on the doorstep Monday. The signing sheets are on their way back from Adelaide right now, and I’m hoping that there will be a happy meeting of all parties by Wednesday. So they’ll be posting soon.
