Illustrated by Dame Darcy
An exclusive, profusely illustrated hardcover novella related to CaitlÌn's harrowing new novel, Threshold!
Late one night, on a lonely south Georgia highway, a very strange car picks up an even stranger hitchhiker and the fates of all concerned become inextricably intertwined. Meet Dancy Flammarion, an orphaned albino girl who talks to angels and is intent on ridding the world of monsters. But what happens when one of the monsters decides to use her for his own dark ends?
In the Garden of Poisonous Flowers is award-winning fantasist CaitlÌn R. Kiernan's first-ever novella, giving us a glimpse into the life of Dancy Flammarion shortly before her appearance in Kiernan's critically-acclaimed second novel, Threshold. This gritty yet decadent story of ghouls, corruption, and talking bears, draws us deeply into a world of madness and betrayal, forbidden appetites and deadly intrigue, and the light that shines from the most unlikely of heroes.
In the Garden of Poisonous Flowers will include a full-color dustjacket and ten black and white interior illustrations by Dame Darcy!
The Limited and Lettered editions will also include "On the Road to Jefferson," a previously unpublished chapbook available only with the novella, with cover art by CaitlÌn R. Kiernan.
In the Garden of Poisonous Flowers is available only from Subterranean Press in three editions:
Trade: fully cloth bound hardcover
Limited: 300 signed numbered copies with extra chapbook
