Book: Limited edition copy of The Girl with No Hands & Other Stories
OPENING BID: $20
The Girl with No Hands & Other Tales won the 2011 Aurealis Award for Best Collection. Only 100 copies of the limited hard cover signed edition were printed and this is one of the last remaining copies.
Kirstyn McDermott (Madigan Mine) said of the collection: Angela Slatter is a brilliant, intelligent woman with a razor sharp wit and a seemingly inexhaustible ability to create stories which are at once beautiful and devastating, complex and refined. She reminds me a little of Neil Gaiman: both these writers manage to tread the line between whimsy and poignancy with apparently effortless grace. Both are weavers of contemporary fables, modern fairy tales, and new mythologies — essentially, bedtime stories for grown ups. (Of course, Angela does have much better hair. Sorry Neil.)
Mario Gudlandi (SF Site) said: Angela Slatter is an Australian author who spins beautiful yarns in a musical, fascinating narrative style. Her enticing stories are set in a magical world in which reality is colourful and fascinating, made of that elusive, precious substance of which dreams are made. The Girl with No Hands collects sixteen enchanting fairy tales for grownups penned by this incredibly talented writer.
