With an Introduction by Robert Shearman and an Afterword by Jeff VanderMeer.

Sourdough was nominated for the World Fantasy Award and Aurealis Awards

Welcome to the beautiful magic, restless passion and
exquisite horror of Angela Slatter's impeccably imagined tales.

In the cathedral-city of Lodellan and its uneasy hinterland, babies are fashioned from bread, dolls are given souls and wishes granted may be soon regretted. There are ghosts who dream, men whose wings have been clipped and trolls who long for something other.

Love, loss and life are elegantly dissected in Slatter's earthy yet poetic

As Rob Shearman says in his Introduction: 'Sourdough and Other Stories manages to be grand and ambitious and worldbuilding-but also as intimate and focused as all good short fiction should be . . . The joy of Angela Slatter's book is that she's given us a set of fairy tales that are at once both new and fresh, and yet feel as old as storytelling itself.'
