War. Politics. Revolution.
The Age of Madness has arrived...
The chimneys of industry rise over Adua and the world seethes with new opportunities. But old scores run deep as ever.

The age of the machine dawns, but the age of magic refuses to die. With the help of the mad hillwoman Isern-i-Phail, Rikke struggles to control the blessing, or the curse, of the Long Eye.

Catherine Dousteyssier-Khoze's The Beauty of the Death Cap was published by Snuggly Books in August 2018.
Information about Catherine Dousteyssier-Khoze:
Catherine Dousteyssier-Khoze is Associate Professor of French at Durham University, U.K. She is the author of numerous books, critical editions and articles on nineteenth-century literature and French cinema. Her latest book, Claude Chabrol’s Aesthetics of Opacity, was released by Edinburgh University Press in 2018. The Beauty of the Death Cap, published in France in 2015, is her début novel. It won the André Dubreuil Prize awarded by the Société des Gens de Lettres and a Fondation Prince Pierre de Monaco Prize.
Information about The Beauty of the Death Cap:
Nikonor is an eccentric and scholarly snob, a mycomaniac who has just made it to the Château de la Charlanne where he spent his childhood in the company of his twin sister, Anastasie. After all these years, it is not quite clear what brings him back to la Charlanne - an isolated and somewhat derelict castle located in the heart of the French countryside - but he is keen to share various memories with the reader in order to ‘set the record straight’, while he delivers his opinions on literature, cheeses, and, especially, mushrooms.
Winner of both a Prix André Dubreuil and a Prix Fondation Prince Pierre de Monaco upon its original publication in France, The Beauty of the Death Cap is a darkly comic and sinister novel, a work that, page by page, becomes ever more disturbing, as we try to discover who Nikonor really is.

Information about Crossfaded in Narnia:
Broken homes, drug addiction, lost causes.
These five stories follow disaffected youths through the day-to-day routines that help them cope and into more surreal territory, where the destitute and the otherworldly intertwine.
From exploding televisions and absent parents to concerned therapists, crustacean junkies, and friendships cut tragically short, Crossfaded in Narnia burrows into the grit to take a closer look at the mystery beneath.
