Out there in summerland

People will be reading John Schoffstall’s Half-Witch. One bookseller, Christina at Ravenna Third Place in Seattle, got a jump on summer (see Edelweiss if this sounds like it could be you) and sent us this, heh.

Is there some kind of list available where I can sign up to join Lizbet and Strix’s witchy duo? Because that would be so amazing. This otherworldly, sweet story of madcap adventures shared between seemingly mismatched companions has shades of Jim Henson’s Labyrinth — it will totally delight any fans of Catherynne Valente’s Fairyland series.



New Books? New Books!

It is boom time here at Small Beer! Books are rolling off the printing presses, more are being sent for quick reprints (whoopee!), I’m working on a couple of contracts, lining up some books for next autumn, and here here here are a few fun, mindblowing, immersive, weird and fantastic (so: just the usual then?) books that we will publish next spring and summer.

In reverse order they are:

Alien Virus Love Disaster, a debut collection of door-stomping-down stories from Abbey Mei Otis

Half-Witch, a debut YA novel of by John Schoffstall

and The Invisible Valley, a debut novel by Su Wei translated by Austin Woerner
