Ysabeau Wilce praises BONE SWANS, our forthcoming story collection from C.S.E. Cooney

March 25th, 2015 No Comments

Bone_Swans_ARC_frontAndre Norton Award winner Ysabeau S. Wilce (author of Flora’s Dare) has some very kind words for Bone Swans by C.S.E. Cooney, the first-ever single author collection from Mythic Delirium Books:

Bone Swans is a joy of feathery bones & ghoulish clowns. I adored every word. Like an eyas cries for meat, I cry for more. C.S.E. Cooney’s a major talent and these are major talent stories. Who can resist hero rats, pouting swans, feral children, flying carpets and the Flabberghast? So tongue-tied am I with delight I fall back on the usual cliches: gripping, delightful, insightful, rollicking & lyrical—and yet not one cliche is to be found in Bone Swans, only stories of surpassing delicacy and wit, told by a lady of rare talent. Please, ma’am, might I have some more?”

We’ll be launching Cooney’s book in July at Readercon — but if you can’t wait till then, you can pre-order it at Barnes & Noble.
By the way, Cooney’s Indiegogo campaign for her Brimstone Rhine music project ends this evening, so if you want to help out but haven’t yet, time’s a-wastin’. (You can read the complete lyrics to one of the albums she’s going to record right here on the Mythic Delirium site.)
