The Bureau of Almost Here



A wee announcement over at the Spectral Press website today:

THE BUREAU OF THEM by Cate Gardner
Cate Gardner’s new novella The Bureau of Them is due to be published this coming June and will be launched at this year’s Edge-Lit event in Derby in July alongside Mark Morris’ Albion Fay and Stephen Volk’s Leytonstone. To whet your appetite, here’s a teaser blurb from the back cover:
You’re not the first to talk to your dead here, the vagrant said. The living always chase after their dead until they come upon their own.
Formed from shadow and dust, ghosts inhabit the abandoned office building, angry at the world that denies them. When Katy sees her deceased boyfriend in the window of the derelict building, she finds a way in, hoping to be reunited. Instead, the dead ignore, the dead do not see and only the monster that is Yarker Ryland has need of her there.
You can pre-order at the Spectral Press page. Publication is due June/July 2015 and as per the announcement above it will be launched at Edge-Lit. This will be my first book launch and I'm very lucky to be sharing the event with such megastars as Mark Morris and Stephen Volk. If nothing else, I will be able to supply them with spare pens if their's run out.
Cover art forthcoming.

Volk and Morris? How utterly brilliant is that? Those lucky guys getting to share your spotlight! You should charge 'em. 10% of sales on the day should cover it. Get your people to talk to their people and make it happen.

I take payment in pens.*

*That sentence could have gone so wrong.

Ooh! That description calls to mind the eerie, old hotel in the opening of every HAVEN. The apparitions in the windows.... Can't wait for the book.
