The Poison Eaters and Other StoriesHolly Black
fantasy, short stories, young adult
In her debut collection, New York Times best-selling author Holly Black returns to the world of Tithe in two darkly exquisite new tales. Then Black takes readers on a tour of a faerie market and introduces a girl poisonous to the touch and another who challenges the devil to a competitive eating match. These stories have been published in anthologies such as 21 Proms, The Faery Reel, and The Restless Dead, and have been reprinted in many “Best of” anthologies. The Poison Eaters is Holly Black’s much-anticipated first collection of stories, and her ability to stare into the void – and to find humanity and humor there – will speak to young adult and adult readers alike.
Holly Black (born 1971) is an American writer and editor. She is best known for The Spiderwick Chronicles, which she created with illustrator Tony DiTerlizzi.
