Upcoming Publications Part 7
It's been a year since I started Upcoming Publications 6, so here's a thread for upcoming publications. I think Endicott Studio now addresses this more, but feel free to continue posting here, too.

Kay Nielsen


Hurray ! Nielsen's Fairy Tale Illustrations in Full Color is now published ! I've been hoping that Dover Publications would bring out a book dedicated to the beautiful work of this Golden Age illustrator, and now they have. It's in the same format as their Rackham and Dulac books-need I say more ?

Re: Upcoming
My YA novel, Charlotte Miller, will be released by Arthur A. Levine Books/Scholastic in Spring 2008. It's a retelling of "Rumpelstiltskin" set in a woollen mill during the Industrial Revolution.

Re: Upcoming
The paperback of PAY THE PIPER (which just won the Locus YA award) and the hardcover of TROLL BRIDGE, both from Tor and both part of the Rock n' Roll Fary Tale series, are just coming out this week or next. I love the August Hall covers.

Re: Upcoming from Clarissa Pinkola Estes
In Italian, a version of Tancolo Nagymamak, The Dancing Grandmothers, will be released very soon by Frassinelli. France and Germany, Brazil and Hungary will soon follow. This is a little book of signature stories about the wise elders' duty to teach and test and love those younger and older who are ready for bodacious, insightful and experienced views and exemplars

with kindest regards,

The Ladies of Grace Adieu etc.
Hello all,

This week I'm finishing up some 20 illustrations for Susanna Clarke's collection of short stories, The Ladies of Grace Adieu (mid-Oct. from Bloomsbury) and then will begin the painted art for Blueberry Girl (Harper Collins) from writer Neil Gaiman. Directly after, I'll be painting the cover and drawing decorations for each story in Terri Windling and Ellen Datlow's new anothogy, Coyote Road (Viking). Also the movie adaptation of Stardust is well into production and looks really, really lovely. I was just able to stroll the sets, meet the director and some of the cast (Michelle Pfeiffer, Robert De Niro, Clare Danes, Rupert Everett, Peter O'toole, Ricky Gervais, etc.) as well as viewing some 30 minutes of raw footage. Splendid stuff! And over the horizon just might be a 200 page art book. That is, if I can stay healthy and keep my head attached...

Best,
Charles

Stay healthy.

Re: Upcoming Publications Part 7
*shuffles her feet* Well, my retelling of Rumplestiltskin The Tale of the Miller's Daughter came out from Papaveria Press in June, and a retelling of Donkey Skin called Owl Skin is slated to come out in December from the same press. :)

Re: Upcoming
Oh wow, I'll have to read that! It looks like we both just wrote books that re-tell Rumpelstiltskin :P

Worshipping Small Gods
I thought that those of you who read and enjoyed THE OGRE'S WIFE might want to know that my second story collection, WORSHIPPING SMALL GODS, will be officially released in January from Prime Books. There were a few advance copies available at the World Fantasy Convention, but probably no more until closer to publication time. There's a healthy percentage of legend/fairytale based stories in with the less classifiable stuff.

You can see a copy of the cover here:

Cruel Sister and more
I have new picture books and some other titles on the front page of SurLaLune. But since Cruel Sister ballads come up fairly frequently on the boards although they don't appear on SurLaLune, I thought I would share a recent mystery novel using the ballad:

Cruel Sister: A Haunted Ballad by Deborah Grabien

Also, the tv series of Beauty and the Beast Season 1 has been announced for release in February 2006 in the US.

Re: Cruel Sister and more
Cruel Sister is actually the 4th book in this series, subtitled "Haunted Ballads" . I have been impressed with all of the titles so far -- the other retellings include: "The Weaver and the Factory Maid", "The Famous Flower of Serving Men" and "Matty Groves". She plays with the story of the ballad -- and in doing so, plays with perceptions as well.

These books add a lot to the gathering of ballads for my book -- they are set in the real world but with a supernatural flavour as well. I highly recommend them.

Yours in stories,
gail

Re: Another 'Further Tale'
Hello everyone. My fifth YA fantasy-adventure novel, The Riddle of the Gnome (by P.W. Catanese, published by Simon and Schuster/Aladdin Paperbacks), will be out March 6, 2007.

As in my first four books, I've taken a classic fairy tale and told what happens many years later. In this instance, it's long after the incident described in the "Rumpeltstiltskin" story (I see I'm not the only author on this board exploring the possibilities of that tale!). A young boy cursed to bring bad luck to everyone he meets is visited by a cantankerous, ill-mannered gnome who may hold the key to curing his hex...wild adventure ensues. If you'd like to know more about this and my other titles, visit www.pwcatanese.com.

Happy holidays, everyone.

Young, contemporary Fairy stories
The first two books in a new, young (aimed at 7 year old girls) series called "The Fairy Chronicles" are set to be published in May (you can see them on Amazon). There are six announced thus far. I've illustrated the first four...

Not traditional fairy tales - but an interesting, and very visual take on contemporary girls, some of whom happen to also be fairies... Young girls should enjoy.

Interfictions
April 30 will mark the official release date of Interfictions, a collection of stories that flout or subvert genre conventions. Included among these stories is my own "Rats," a retelling of Sleeping Beauty refracted through the punk scene in 1970s New York City and London.

You can pre-order the book here, and read more about it here.

I have to tell you, though I says it as shouldn't, this story may well be the Best Thing I Have Ever Written.

Re: HEREAFTER, AND AFTER
PS Publishing in the UK just released my novella, Hereafter, and After in both trade and hardcover limited editions. It's the story of a former accountant now trying to make his way in competing Afterlifes. A good deal of the story takes place in Valhalla, and you get a pretty good walking tour of the Nordic cosmos on the way to Ragnarok. The world may end, but it's getting better.

The introduction is by Andy Duncan. Booklist gave it a very nice review in the April 15th edition.

Better Late Than Never
After initially announcing this back in November I'm almost embarrassed to say it now, but Worshipping Small Gods, my second short story collection, is finally available from Prime Books. Terri Windling gave the collection a very nice review on the Endicott Blog.

Edited to add: There's a new review up at the Critical Mass web site.

Scribbles
I just read a charming new picture book with a sideways take on Sleeping Beauty called Scribbles, by Deborah Freedman. Both the story and pictures are engaging and charming, perfect for young readers (and older readers like me who love engaging art).

You can pick it up here.
