A must for any Lucy Sussex fan. Introduction by Delia Sherman.
We're also pleased to be able to be sponsoring Lucy's attendance at next year's SwanCon, WA's annual science fiction convention.
Last year, in preparation for an introduction to a new collection of Lucy’s stories, called Matilda Told Such Dreadful Lies, (Ticonderoga Press—look for it) I read very nearly all her stories, one after another, and was blown away all over again.

Publishers Weekly gives a starred review to Lucy Sussex's Matilda Told Such Dreadful Lies. This is our first starred review (and hopefully the first of many)! The bit we especially love is
"Readers of all genres are sure to find something to fit their tastes."
the full review is below.
Matilda Told Such Dreadful Lies will be available world-wide.
Lucy Sussex. Ticonderoga (www.ticonderogapublications.com), $22.99 (514p) ISBN 978-0-9807813-7-3
This collection of short stories by Lucy Sussex is a surefire hit, featuring 25 reprinted selections that range from science fiction and fantasy to mystery and suspense. Readers of all genres are sure to find something to fit their tastes. In the compelling "Merlusine," a determined geneticist attempts to track down the mysterious remaining family of a famed "snake-woman" in hopes of mapping out their genes. In the alternate history "My Lady Tongue," a bold young woman encounters her first male outsider after being separated from her hard-core feminist community. In "Ardent Clouds," a risk-addicted filmmaker specializing in volcanoes goes to film one that is long dormant with the promise of something more. Despite some overlapping themes and ideas (most notably three back-to-back stories about cursed dolls), each story feels fresh and original. Sussex's style of writing is consistently engaging, and her protagonists strong and endearing--a winning combination. Readers will be hard-pressed to find a weak spot in this collection. (July)

There is a richness in the imagination at work here that really deserves to be far better known and recognised, and we can only hope that this superb collection will do the job.
