Pleased to announce the publication of M. J. Westley’s first novel, ‘Thimblestar’. This is a fairy story you will never have read the like of before. Described by editor Storm Constantine as ‘the story Shakespeare’s fairies from Midsummer Night’s Dream might have written’, and by Immanion Press consultant Ian Watson as “This may be one of the strangest books you will ever read, and I even recommend reading it aloud, so as not to miss anything. “Once when the seasons were six… was the first dream stolen. Twas placed beneath a mirror, guarded by a dog of bronze.” To build a mythic world, mostly woven out of nature, is a great achievement”, M. J. Westley is a refreshing new voice for literary fantasy.
Also newly-released is the fourth book in the Wraeththu Mythos short story collections, ‘Para Animalia’, edited by Storm Constantine and Wendy Darling.
The androgynous and mysterious Wraeththu have risen to replace humanity upon a ravaged world. Fourth in the Wraeththu Mythos anthologies, ‘Para Animalia’ focuses upon Wraeththu’s relationship with the animal kingdom – creatures both real and imaginary.
Based on the world created by Storm Constantine for her Wraeththu novels, the stories in this collection explore how various Wraeththu tribes interact with animals, have spiritual or working relationships with them, or have encountered zoological mysteries out in the world. From the wolves of frozen forests, and a har’s obsession with spiders, to the snakes of parched deserts and the hunting dogs of what was once the African plains, hara confront a strengthening natural world that is now free of humanity.
‘Para Animalia’ features stories from nine writers, some of whom are well known within Wraeththu fandom and/or have written Wraeththu Mythos novels published by Immanion Press. Also included are two new stories each by Storm Constantine and Wendy Darling.
Featuring stories by: Storm Constantine, Wendy Darling, Martina Bellovičová, Nerine Dorman, Amanda Kear, Fiona Lane, Maria J Leel, Daniela Ritter and E S Wynn.
Both of these new titles may be purchased through Amazon and other internet outlets, and from our own web site http://www.immanion-press.com
