After the War: Two Tales of Noreela

After the War: Two Tales of Noreela

by Tim Lebbon

Availability: Out of Print

$35.00
From Publishers Weekly:
“Whereas the first of these tales is indisputably fantastic in terms of its imagery and set pieces, the second reads like a straight crime caper set in an exotic land. In each, Lebbon vividly describes the landscape and local color. Readers who have enjoyed other books in the Noreela series will find these tales a tide-me-over until the next full-length novel.”
 

Dust jacket by Tomislav Tikulin

Subterranean Press is proud to present two novellas set in Tim Lebbon's signature world of Noreela!

* * *

Vale of Blood Roses
A mercenary should be allowed to quit. That’s what Jakk thinks. But his companions don’t want to quit. As the Cataclysmic War ends they enter a valley that should not exist, see machines that should be dead, and interrupt something that should be left alone. There’s regret, but some actions can’t be undone. There’s hope, but it’s so obviously false. And there’s revenge.

The Bajuman
Korrin is a Bajuman, vilified for some vague wrongdoing in his people’s past. He’s also a hunter, making his living tracking down lost people, forgotten things. Charged with finding a missing fodder – member of an ancient race originally bred for food -- he soon realises a painful truth. In Noreela City, still recovering from the Great Plagues, everyone is lost.

From Booklist:
“In each of these two powerful novellas set in Lebbon’s vividly imagined world, Noreela, an outcast struggles to make the right choices in a context in which no good choices are left...Lebbon’s postapocalyptic fantasy world is a bleak one, and his strong, descriptive writing and sympathetic characters make its horrors all too visible.”

From Fantasy Magazine:
“Luckily, the stories hold together well, take some interesting risks, and ultimately, pay off. If you've read the previous Noreela novels, these will give you a fuller sense of the world and keep your appetite in check until the next full-length novel is published. If you’re new to Noreela, these stories will please you, give you a taste of what Lebbon’0.s writing is like, and perhaps send you to the bookstore searching for Dusk and Dawn.”
