A collection of interconnected tales with links between them as light and strong as spider-silk. From fire giants to whispering halls, disappearing children to evening-wolves, fairy hills to bewitched cypress trees, and talking heads to moonshiners of a special sort, Midnight and Moonshine takes readers on a journey from ninth century Vinland to America's Deep South in the present day.
Introduction by Kim Wilkins.
Midnight and Moonshine is a fantastic read, a highly recommended collection of uniquely imagined fantasy tales
You can buy Midnight and Moonshine at all good online bookshops, and directly from us at www.indiebooksonline.com/catalog/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=moonshine.
A huge and slightly belated congratulations to the incredible Kathleen Jennings on her recent Ditmar win for the cover artwork of Midnight and Moonshine, the much lauded collection by Lisa L. Hannett and Angela Slatter.
Kathleen's fabulous cover won the Best Professional Artwork Ditmar at the recent Australian National SF Convention, held in Canberra.
Midnight and Moonshine has picked up a number of accolades including a Publishers Weekly Starred Review and making the Locus Recommended Reading List, and we're really pleased Kathleen's cover has added to this list.
It's been a wonderfully busy month for us, and we're sorry we didn't get to highlighting this tremendous achievement sooner. It's the first Ditmar Award we've been associated with since 2008.
Want to find out what all the fuss is about Midnight and Moonshine? You can buy either of its editions from us at indiebooksonline or at just about any online good bookshop: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Book Depository, just to name a few.
It gives us great pleasure to invite you to the Adelaide launch of Midnight and Moonshine, the new collaboration between Lisa L. Hannett and Angela Slatter.

"Marked by imagery both beautiful and grotesque, and unnerving twists that recall the uncanny horror of original fairy tales, this collection contains a unifying, multilayered plot that draws upon Norse mythology to take the reader on a thrilling, unsettling journey." - Publishers Weekly starred review.
First, Farren Miller gives the book a great review. We're especially happy to read
Another kind of combination gives this book its unique tone: however grand the fantasy, passionate the romance, or regally exotic these Fae, their stories inevitably take on some of the gritty frankness, spilled blood, and shit of ordinary human life.
You can read the full review in Locus.
And then, turning to the 2012 Year in Review, Midnight and Moonshine makes their Recommended Reading List. We're incredibly happy at this much-deserved achievement for a fantastic book.
You can order this wonderful collection at any good bookstore, or directly from us at http://www.indiebooksonline.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=122
here the two writers spin quite the spell of prose. Combined with the capacity of both writers to bring characters, both men and women, alive on the page, and to evoke a sense of place and mood with sublime brushstrokes, there is much to relish in Midnight and Moonshine.
