As part of our Locus Challenge, we are hosting a giveaway for one copy of The Poison Eaters and Other Stories by Holly Black to a lucky reader in the United States or Canada, thanks to the generosity of Small Beer Press. The Poison Eaters and Other Stories by Holly Black is on the Locus recommended reading list as one of the best collections of the year 2010. Here’s the book blurb:
Poisonous girls whose kisses will kill. A fateful eating contest with the devil. Faeries who return to Ironside, searching for love. A junior prom turned bacchanalia. In twelve short stories, eerie and brimming with suspense and unexpected humor, Holly Black twists the fantastical creatures you thought you knew in ways you’ll never expect.
Here’s praise for The Poison Eaters and Other Stories:
“Black’s first story collection assures her place as a modern fantasy master…. Sly humor, vivid characters, each word perfectly chosen: These stories deserve reading again and again.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Simply put, Holly Black is one of our best writers. Enchanting and edgy, yes, but it’s the big heart in her stories that brings me back to her writing, time and again. Reading a new book by Holly is like meeting up with an old friend. They might be a little messed up from the last time you saw them, they might have some serious drama going on in their lives, but the connection is immediate, and when they’re packing up to head off again, you don’t want to let them go.” Charles de Lint, author of The Blue Girl
“Black (the Good Neighbors series) proves equally adept at urban fantasy and more traditional fairy tales, and her stories often feature the edgy sexuality and angst that have become her trademarks.” Publishers Weekly
“Holly Black is the Real Thing: a gifted writer with a solid grounding in what matters. Her stories are dark and splendid blooms rising from roots sunk deep in myth and tradition.” Ellen Kushner, author of The Privilege of the Sword
