The Future is Blue by Catherynne M. Valente sent to the printer, plus the first review lands

The Future is Blue by Catherynne M. Valente


Catherynne M. Valente's major new collection, The Future is Blue, has just made its way to the printer. At the same itme, we've just received its Publishers Weekly review. Here's the cutting from that:

 “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.”

As a reminder, The Future is Blue includes 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.” 

Direct preorders for this collection have been stronger than for any book we've done with Cat, so you might want to get your order in.
