Dust jacket and interior illustrations by Ted Naifeh

An albino girl wanders the sun-scorched backroads of a south Georgia summer, following the bidding of an angel or perhaps only voices in her head, searching out and slaying ancient monsters who have hidden themselves away in the lonely places of the world. Caitlín R. Kiernan first introduced Dancy in the pages of her award-winning second novel, Threshold (2001), then went on to write several more short stories and a novella about this unlikely heroine, each a piece of what has become an epic dark fantasy narrative. Alabaster finally collects all these tales into one volume, illustrated by Ted Naifeh (Gloomcookie, How Loathsome,Courtney Crumrin, Polly and the Pirates, etc.).

Alabaster will include:

  • An introduction by the author.
  • The Well of Stars and Shadow
  • Alabaster
  • Waycross
  • “Le Fleurs Empoisonnées” (originally published as In the Garden of Poisonous Flowers)
  • Bainbridge (previously unpublished, the “last” Dancy Flammrion story, a 16,000 word novella)

Limited: 350 signed numbered copies, with an exclusive chapbook Highway 97
