<p class="MsoNormal">With an Introduction by Robert Shearman</p>

<p class="MsoNormal">and an Afterword by Jeff VanderMeer</p>

<p class="MsoNormal"><b><i>Sourdough</i></b> was nominated for the World Fantasy Award and
Aurealis Awards</p>

<p class="MsoNormal">Welcome to the beautiful magic, restless passion and
exquisite horror of Angela Slatter's impeccably imagined tales.</p>

<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="mso-spacerun:yes"> </span>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

<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="mso-spacerun:yes"> </span>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.'</p>
