The Future is Blue by Catherynne M Valente

Catherynne M. Valente's major new collection, The Future is Blue, is in stock and shipping! Even better, from our perspective, it's 85% sold out, with more bookstore and distributor orders expected soon.

The collection's highlights include three never-before-printed stories, for almost 30,000 words of work exclusive to this collection: “Major Tom,” “Two and Two is Seven,” and the long novelette “Flame, Pearl, Mother, Autumn, Virgin, Sword, Kiss, Blood, Heart, and Grave.”

Limited: 1250 signed numbered hardcover copies: $40

From Publishers Weekly:

“In this challenging collection of 15 reprints and originals with a variety of tones, themes, and styles, Valente’s unique knack for bending genres and confounding the senses is on full display. Her approach is dreamlike, even hallucinatory, leaping from one idea to the next with dizzying frequency and skill. Her multilayered, complicated narratives require careful, in-depth reading to grasp their full meaning.”

From Kirkus Reviews:

“Valente (Space Opera, 2018, etc.) collects her fablelike short works of fantasy, science fiction, and science fantasy… Valente loves poetic language, and overanalysis would ruin what she's crafted here.”

From Booklist:

“This collection of short stories showcases Valente’s (Space Opera, 2018) gorgeous way with words and impressive genre flexibility as she moves from science fiction to fairy tale to comedic horror with her singular linguistic flair… Fans of Valente will adore this collection for the same reasons they love her other work; for those unfamiliar, it provides an engrossing and appealing introduction to the many worlds and voices she is capable of producing.”
