Triskell Tales

Triskell Tales

Illustration By MaryAnn Harris

Dustjacket and interior art by MaryAnn Harris

This collection by the fantasy master has literally been over 20 years in the making! Each year, Mr. de Lint self-publishes a chapbook for private distribution. He gives copies to his wife, his friends, and colleagues, but does not offer them for sale. (The few times that copies have been auctioned for charitable purposes, they have sold for well over a hundred dollars apiece.) Some of the stories have since been reprinted, and are considered modern classics. Some (over 80,000 words) have never been printed in the U.S., made their sole appearance in a small community newspaper, or were printed in editions limited to only one copy! This mammoth collection (over 450 pages) gathers them for the first time, making Triskell Tales absolutely essential for de Lint fans.

The Subterranean Press edition of Triskell Tales -- the only edition currently under contract -- will be limited to 2000 autographed and numbered copies, bound in full cloth, with a full color dustjacket, illustrated autograph page, and interior illustrations by MaryAnn Harris.

We're pleased to announce a second printing of what may be Charles de Lint's most personal collection to date.
