LATCHKEY: new reviews and Readercon

July 3rd, 2018 2 Comments

As of today, there’s only a week to go before Nicole Kornher-Stace’s novel Latchkey officially launches.

Anita and Nicole and I all plan to come to Readercon in Quincy, Mass., just outside Boston, which takes place Thursday, July 12 through Sunday, July 15, not at all coincidentally the same week Latchkey goes live.

For the first time ever, Anita and I will be running a Mythic Delirium Books table in the Readercon bookshop, where we’ll have oodles of copies of Latchkey, as well as past MDB “hits” like the World Fantasy Award-winning Bone Swans, the Clockwork Phoenix series and the Mythic Delirium anthologies, and copies of my own works such as Unseaming, The Spider Tapestries and The Black Fire Concerto.

On Friday, July 13, Nicole will give a reading from Latchkey at 11 a.m. in Salon B. You won’t want to miss it! (For help remembering, you can download various versions of the 2018 Readercon program on this page.)

We’re looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones.

In the run-up to release a number of cool Latchkey-related things have happened that I haven’t shared here yet. So, without further delay:

  • Tor.com included Latchkey in staff round-ups of “20 Summer Books We Cannot Wait to Read!” and “All the Genre-Bending Books Coming Out in July!
  • The Little Red Reviewer (aka Andrea Johnson) has posted a glowing advance review:
  • Latchkey is part post-apocalyptic, part mythology, part ghost story, and and all perspective shift, told through the lens of Kornher-Stace’s mastery of prose and evocatively transportive language. This is the kind of sharp vibrant prose that would translate beautifully to an anime or a movie … If you like gorgeous prose, a slow burn, angry ghosts, snarky dialog and gut punches, and the intersection of post-apocalyptic and mythology, Latchkey is the book for you. This book is written in the language of a path of breadcrumbs, won’t you see where it leads?

  • KidLiterati has also posted a glowing 5-star review, written by YA author Melanie Conklin:
  • It’s just as intense, fascinating, and strange as the first installment from Nicole Kornher-Stace … A satisfying sequel that takes a little while to get going, but once it does, is a late night page-turner.

  • And the Locus website has published the entirety of Liz Bourke’s enthusiastic review:
  • Latchkey is another katabatic narrative, a literal descent and re-emergence that in this case parallels metaphoric ones … Kornher-Stace has a deft touch with voice and character. Isabel is immensely compelling: a young woman raised in a brutal environment with little affection, who expected to die in ritual combat, and who nonetheless manages to develop personal integrity, ethics, compassion, and the ability to care about other people.

    More to come in the days ahead!
