Once we finish with the last of the Ebay shipping marathon, next in line is Caitlin R. Kiernan's new collection, Confessions of a Five-Chambered Heart, which consists of 25 very rare stories, most of which have only seen print in Cait's subscription-only Sirenia Digest.
The reviews, we're happy to say, haven't been too shabby:
From Publishers Weekly:
“This impressive collection of 25 'weird romance' stories…is laden with dark little gems that blur the boundaries between pleasure and pain and between reality and fantasy. The stories are intensely and often graphically erotic, and explore transgression, transformation, and transcendence. The seductively dark lyricism and thematic profundity of this collection will appeal to anyone who shares Kiernan's longing for 'desire without boundaries.'”
“This collection is an incredible accomplishment by one of the best horror writers our there. There is not a single disappointing story, and they never feel repetitive or familiar. Each tale is unique, a difficult feat in a genre often drawn to reusing familiar tropes. Kiernan's stories get under your skin; the emotions she conjures up refuse to stay constrained to the page. Reading this book might lead to a few sleepless nights; but readers willing to take the risk won't be disappointed.”
The signed limited edition, as we've mentioned before, comes with an extra 20,000 word collection, The Yellow Book. Both editions of Confessions are selling well. With luck, we won't have copies for much longer.
