About a year ago, my friend Gwenda Bond came to DC to do some research for a book she was writing. Something about gods and Washington, DC. (She, her husband and I got drunk that night after dinner, so I have a fuzzy memory). Anyway, the book she was researching came out this week. I wish the book (and its author) much success.
Fatal Women: The Esther Garber Novellas by Tanith Lee are finally out from Lethe Press. It was a pleasure to work with Ms. Lee and get these books back in print. The interiors, designed by Alex Jeffers, are exquisite.
These books are surrealistic historical lesbian fiction–kind of like Sarah Waters on opium, with Jeanette Winterson and Colette popping in as influences.
I had the pleasure of reading this slim novella, and here’s what I had to say”
“Tom Cardamone’s GREENTHUMB is a beautifully written eco-erotic, post-apocalyptic fantasy infused with the New Weird invention of China Mieville’s febrile imagination.”
Go forth and read/buy this wonderfully weird book published by BrazenHead/Lethe Press!
