Passing through... The Vestibule

Did you know that before Dante made it into Hell proper he had to pass through the vestibule, a nowhere place? And, did you know that uncommitted souls lie on the banks of the river Acheron? And did you know that my niece starts almost every sentence with 'and did you know?'


Well now you do. Or perhaps, you already did.

In other Nowhere Hall news, the chapbook has been printed and copies are either in the mail or due to go out in the mail. If you bought it (thank you) then the chapbook should be with you shortly and if you ordered a copy via me I'll email you when my copies arrive and send one scurrying on its way to you. Another (fabulous) review has appeared online, this time by Colum McKnight of Dreadful Tales.

Gardner obviously takes her time crafting these images and emotions... A whirlwind of greatness is contained with the pages of yet another brilliant Spectral Press release.


You can read the rest of the review here.

And as it's Wednesday, I should mention my WIP. It's draft number 745 of Grim Glass Vein. I've fallen back in love with the story. I guess we just needed a break.

I'm in awe. Big congrats.

My 3 yr old granddaughter begins every sentence with a loud "Excuse me!" :)

A "whirlwind of greatness" -- now that's freakin' cool.

Great review, Cate. I'm reading my copy as soon as the postman drops it in my box. (Hear that, Mr. Postman?)

I laughed at the end of the first paragraph.

I missed ordering Nowhere Hall by 1 day, oh well. Maybe I'll be lucky enough to see it in a future collection.

Cheers
Jeff
