Liturgy of Ice (A Variation) now available! A dark homoerotic fairytale

Liturgy of Ice was inspired by one of my favorite fairytales, The Snow Queen. I use the fairytale imagery as a mediation isolation and loneliness.

Other inspirations: “The Sweetest Chill,” by Siouxsie & the Banshees; Philip Ridley’s novel In the Eyes of Mr. Fury.

Death’s Master (Flat Earth Book 2) by Tanith Lee is now an ebook. Wildean fantasia meets Arabian Nights

book_deaths_master_small

Death’s Master is finally an ebook, released by Immanion Press. It’s an epic fantasy told in the high style full of eroticism and horror, as well as beauty. Part runaway Wildean fantasia, part Arabian Nights, here’s what I said about the Flat Earth series as a whole:

The eroticism in the text [is] exploratory but tempered by a peculiar kind of innocence, helped in no small part by the jewel-like precision of the prose.  There [are] horrors in the stories, but there [is] also tenderness.  It is [Tanith] Lee’s special talent to mix both tenderness and terror.

Tanith Lee writing as Esther Garber

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.

Esther Garber books

These books are surrealistic historical lesbian fiction–kind of like Sarah Waters on opium, with Jeanette Winterson and Colette popping in as influences.
