Angela Slatter has been nominated twice for the World Fantasy Award, both times for her short story collections. Of Sorrow and Such is a Medieval fantasy featuring witches, shapeshifters, and the dark thread of the supernatural in a world of superstition and fear. (Click on the front and back covers above for bigger versions.)
Of Sorrow and Such is the sixth in Tor.com‘s stellar line-up of Fall novellas, which includes exciting new releases from K. J. Parker, Paul Cornell, Nnedi Okorafor, and many others. So far I’ve been tremendously impressed with them — they’re gorgeously packaged and marketed, feature some great names and more than a few exciting debuts, and they’ve been extremely well received. I expect to see several titles at the top of awards lists next year.
