It is with great sadness we have to report the death of Tanith Lee, on Sunday 24th May, at the age of 67, following a long illness. We were – and are – privileged to publish Tanith’s work, including the seven volume Colouring Book series, ‘Ghosteria 1’, ‘Ghosteria 2’ and ‘A Different City’.
Tanith had many plans for the future with several different publishers, including new works with Immanion Press. She wouldn’t – and didn’t – stop working until she was physically incapable of doing so. She was able to finish work on her story collection Legenda Maris before her death, and we will be publishing this volume in the near future, which will include two pieces written by Tanith in the last weeks of her life.
There are few writers of Tanith’s calibre, and she was without doubt one of the best fiction writers in the UK, who crossed many genres in her work, and influenced many other authors. She was also a strong supporter of other writers, for whom she provided so much inspiration. Her passing is a terrible loss to literature, as well as to those who loved her.
Our deepest condolences go to her husband John Kaiine.
Turquoiselle by Tanith Lee is now available in Print. The kindle version will be available in the near future.
Not much is what it seems.
The job can be dull, but quite demanding – it involves a lot of driving, often very long hours, an always erratic schedule. Not to mention social duties with certain important clients. The work is lucrative, however. He can easily afford the house in Kent, and the costly wants of Donna, his partner. For someone like Carver, dragged up through a deprived and abused childhood, not such a bad achievement.
It’s just that suddenly things are running less smoothly. This stuff with Donna… Various unusual tensions at work… the bizarre and threatening business over Silvia…
In the end, maybe all you can rely on is yourself.
A dark speculative thriller, this is the seventh in Tanith Lee’s captivating The Colouring Book series.
Death’s Masteris the third book of the dazzling high fantasy series ‘Tales from the Flat Earth’. In the tradition of One Thousand and One nights, the book explores an ancient world in a series of connected tales. Long time ago when the Earth was Flat, beautiful indifferent Gods lived in the airy Upperearth realm above, curious passionate demons lived in the exotic Underearth realm below, and mortals were relegated to exist in the middle. Chuz, Prince Madness, third of the Lords of Darkness – who is the incarnation of beauty on one side, and of foul corruption on the other – ‘takes pity’ on the world. In his gentle soft embrace mortal minds repose in a tide of illusion and twisted desire. Yet no one is immune from the sweetest madness of all, and even immortals fall at the cast of the bone dice… Enter this vivid world of brilliant darkness and beauty, of shimmering palaces and extraordinary elegant beings, of merciless passions and undying love. Discover the exotic and wondrous landscapes of the Flat Earth.
