New from Norilana - Cobweb Bride by Vera Nazarian

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Norilana Books is proud to present Cobweb Bride (Cobweb Bride Trilogy, Book One) by Nebula Award Nominee Vera Nazarian, an epic fantasy of love and eldritch wonder, about death's ultimatum to the world.

Many are called... She alone can save the world and become Death's bride.




Cobweb Bride
(Cobweb Bride Trilogy, Book One)
by Vera Nazarian






Cobweb Bride (Cobweb Bride Trilogy, Book One) is a history-flavored fantasy novel with romantic elements of the Persephone myth, about Death's ultimatum to the world.

What if you killed someone and then fell in love with them?

In an alternate Renaissance world, somewhere in an imaginary "pocket" of Europe called the Kingdom of Lethe, Death comes, in the form of a grim Spaniard, to claim his Bride. Until she is found, in a single time-stopping moment all dying stops. There is no relief for the mortally wounded and the terminally ill....

Covered in white cobwebs of a thousand snow spiders she lies in the darkness... Her skin is cold as snow... Her eyes, frozen... Her gaze, fiercely alive...

While kings and emperors send expeditions to search for a suitable Bride for Death, armies of the undead wage an endless war... A black knight roams the forest at the command of his undead father... Spies and political treacheries abound at the imperial Silver Court.... Murdered lovers find themselves locked in the realm of the living...


Look closer -- through the cobweb filaments of her hair and along each strand shine stars...


And one small village girl, Percy -- an unwanted, ungainly middle daughter -- is faced with the responsibility of granting her dying grandmother the desperate release she needs.


As a result, Percy joins the crowds of other young women of the land in a desperate quest to Death's own mysterious holding in the deepest forests of the North...


And everyone is trying to stop her.


"... Nazarian writes clean and true prose ..." -- Publishers Weekly

New from Norilana Books - PRIDE AND PLATYPUS: Mr. Darcy's Dreadful Secret

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Norilana Books is proud to present Pride and Platypus: Mr. Darcy's Dreadful Secret by Jane Austen and Vera Nazarian, a hilarious "comedy of wonders and manners."

This stylish and clever parody of the Austen classic Pride and Prejudice, comes complete with "scholarly" Footnotes that harangue the reader, amazing Appendices, back cover fake blurbs by Regency ladies and gentlemen, illustrations (by the author), a genuine romantic sub-plot that expands upon Jane Austen's original story... and of course the platypus and the entire wild animal kingdom of Australia!

Oh, and there are demons, malodorous skunks, shape-shifters, matchmaking mothers, true love, and an unspeakable monstrosity known only as the Brighton Duck!


Pride and Platypus: Mr. Darcy's Dreadful Secret
by Jane Austen and Vera Nazarian


When the moon is full over Regency England, all the gentlemen are subject to its curse.

Mr. Darcy, however, harbors a Dreadful Secret...


Shape-shifting demons mingle with Australian wildlife, polite society, and high satire, in this elegant, hilarious, witty, insane, and unexpectedly romantic supernatural parody of Jane Austen's classic novel.


The powerful, mysterious, handsome, and odious Mr. Darcy announces that Miss Elizabeth Bennet is not good enough to tempt him. The young lady determines to find out his one secret weakness -- all the while surviving unwanted proposals, Regency balls, foolish sisters, seductive wolves, matchmaking mothers, malodorous skunks, general lunacy, and the demonic onslaught of the entire wild animal kingdom!


What awaits her is something unexpected. And only moon, matrimony, and true love can overcome pride and prejudice!


Gentle Reader—this Delightful Illustrated Edition includes Scholarly Footnotes and Appendices.

New from Norilana - DELUSION'S MASTER by Tanith Lee

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Norilana Books is proud to present the definitive hardcover and trade paperback reissue of a Tanith Lee classic!


Delusion's Master by Tanith Lee is the third book of the stunning arabesque high fantasy series Tales from the Flat Earth, which, in the manner of The One Thousand and One Nights, portrays an ancient world in mythic grandeur via connected tales.


Long before Vera Nazarian's Dreams of the Compass Rose or Catherynne M. Valente's The Orphan's Tales, beloved British author Tanith Lee created the first truly complete, modern and sophisticated fantasy version of the Arabian Nights, and spun wondrous stories within stories, unparalleled profound tales of arcane mystery, dark love, and bright desire.


"Love me and you, even you, will tell no difference between illusion and reality, for in this case they are one."
— from Delusion's Master


At last, these are the definitive editions, revised and formatted as the author originally intended, containing a new original introduction by Tanith Lee, and a unique previously unpublished interior illustration by the author herself. The cover image is a design by Tanith Lee's husband and artist John Kaiine, incorporating more of her own artwork in the center frame, which makes it a fan and collector's delight.


Delusion's Master by Tanith Lee



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 — beauty on one side, 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...

Come within this ancient world of brilliant darkness and beauty, of glittering palaces and wondrous elegant beings, of cruel passions and undying love.

Discover the exotic wonder that is the Flat Earth.


Tanith Lee is the author of 77 novels, 14 collections, and over 300 short stories, plus 4 radio plays (broadcast by the BBC) and 2 scripts for the TV cult UK SF series Blake's 7. Her work, which has been translated into over 17 languages, ranges through fantasy, SF, gothic, YA and children's books, contemporary, historical and detective novels, and horror. She was awarded the prestigious title of Grand Master of Horror 2009. Major awards include the August Derleth Award for Death's Master, the second book in the Flat Earth series.

PRESS RELEASE - Norilana Books - JoSelle Vanderhooft is New Series Editor for LACE AND BLADE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Norilana Books is proud to welcome JoSelle Vanderhooft as the new series editor for our annual elegant romantic fantasy anthology Lace and Blade.

JoSelle Vanderhooft is an author, editor, poet, reviewer, freelance journalist, dramaturg, and something of a lapsed playwright. She has published seven poetry books including the 2008 Bram Stoker Award finalist Ossuary (Sam's Dot Publishing, 2007) and The Memory Palace, an autobiography in verse (Norilana Books, 2009).

In addition to reviewing for several venues, Vanderhooft edits Drollerie Press' LGBTQ imprint Flyleaf Press and has edited several anthologies, including Sleeping Beauty, Indeed (Torquere Press 2006, reissued by Lethe Press in 2009), Hellebore and Rue: Tales of Queer Women and Magic (Drollerie Press/Lethe Press 2009, with Catherine Lundoff), Bitten by Moonlight (Zumaya Publishing, 2011), and the Steam-Powered series, which collects multicultural steampunk stories featuring lesbian protagonists (Torquere Press).

She currently lives in South Florida with her partner and one gloriously orange tabby cat.

Lace and Blade is an exciting annual anthology series of sexy, elegant, swashbuckling romantic fantasy, where the sparkling wit of Oscar Wilde meets the manners of Jane Austen, the exotic sensual flair of Tanith Lee, and the deadly sharp blade of the Scarlet Pimpernel, Zorro, and D'Artagnan. The author lineup of volumes one and two, edited by acclaimed author and editor Deborah J.Ross, is a stellar example of some of the best talent working in the industry today.

More on this exciting series will be announced soon.
