Award-winning author C.S.E. Cooney indulges in luxurious, dizzying fantasy
In Desdemona and the Deep, the spoiled daughter of a rich mining family must retrieve the tithe of men her father promised to the world below. On the surface, her world is rife with industrial pollution that ruins the health of poor factory workers while the idle rich indulge themselves in unheard-of luxury. Below are goblins, mysterious kingdoms, and an entirely different hierarchy.
C.S.E. Cooney grew up in a
desert with a pack of brothers and a plastic tub of dress-up clothes.
Much later, she and her wardrobe migrated to Chicago for college, where
she received her degree in Fiction Writing with a minor in Theater.
Her fiction and poetry can be found in Apex, Subterranean, Strange Horizons, Clockwork Phoenix 3, The Book of Dead Things, Ideomancer, Goblin Fruit, and Mythic Delirium. She has novellas forthcoming with Black Gate Magazine, where she is currently Blog Mistress. She keeps her own blog at http://csecooney.livejournal.com/.
