Tales of the Apt - Spoils of War Adrian Tchaikovsky

Matching Limited Edition Set of Volume 1 and 2 $90.00

Cover art by Jon Sullivan

Tales of the Apt is a companion series to the best-selling decalogy Shadows of the Apt (Tor UK), gathering together short stories from disparate places and supplementing them with a wealth of new tales written especially for the series. Together, they combine to provide a different perspective, an alternative history that parallels and unfolds alongside the familiar one, filling in the gaps and revealing intriguing backstories for many established characters. A must read for any fan of the Shadows of the Apt books, where epic fantasy meets steampunk and so much more, the Tales series will run to four full volumes with a bonus fifth lurking in the wings. Cover art for all books will be provided by Jon Sullivan, best known for the fabulous covers he produces for Neal Asher’s novels and the early Shadows of the Apt books.
