Early in her career, Cathrynne Valente wrote a duology of books, I won’t call them novels as they’re decidedly something else, entitled collectively The Orphan’s Tales which won the 2008 Mythopoeic Award, and its first volume, The Orphan’s Tales: In the Night Garden, won the 2006 James Tiptree, Jr. Award and was nominated for the 2007 World Fantasy Award. The second volume, The Orphan’s Tales: In the CIties Of Coin and Space, is just as splendid.
So we’ve got her reading a selection from the first volume titled ‘The Tea Maid and The Tailor’ whigh though short is a full story indeed. You can hear her here.
Need I say that you shouldn’t use it elsewhere as it’s only intended for GMR?
