Ticonderoga Publications is delighted to announce the forthcoming publication of a short story collection by the multi award-winning writer Cat Sparks.
The collection, tentatively titled The Bride Price, is scheduled for publication and launch at Conflux - the Australian National Science Fiction Convention in April 2013.
“Cat Sparks has produced a large number of critically acclaimed stories in the last ten years. This collection will focus on bringing together the best of her short science fiction.” Ticonderoga Editor Russell B Farr said.
“As of one of the major Australian SF voices of the past decade, a collection is long overdue,” Russell B Farr added.
Cat Sparks first rose to prominence as the founder of the acclaimed Agog! Press, publishing ten titles from 2002 to 2008. As a writer, Sparks is a graduate of the inaugural Clarion South workshop, a Writers of the Future winner, a multiple Ditmar and Aurealis Award winner, and the author of close to 60 published stories.
The contents will include the award-winning titles “All the Love in the World”, “Seventeen”, “Hollywood Roadkill”, “Last Dance at the Sargeant Major’s Ball” and the acclaimed “Arctica”, and “Home by the Sea”.
The Bride Price is scheduled for publication in April 2013. The collection will be available in limited edition hardcover, trade hardcover and paperback, and ebook editions.
Ticonderoga Publications is excited to announce the forthcoming publication of the first collection by internationally-celebrated Western Australian fantasy writer, Juliet Marillier.
The yet-to-be-titled collection is scheduled for publication in April 2013.
"Juliet Marillier is among the strongest voices writing in the genre, and we are really thrilled to be able to work with her,” Ticonderoga Editor Russell B Farr said.
"It’s also really great to be publishing a fellow West Australian," Russell B Farr added.
Born in New Zealand, Juliet Marillier is the author of thirteen novels for readers of all ages. Her bestselling fantasy series include The Sevenwaters quintet, the Saga of the Light Isles, The Bridei Chronicles and the Wildwood series. She lives in Perth, in a one hundred-year-old cottage, which she shares with three dogs.
Juliet Marillier is a three-times winner of the Aurealis Award for best fantasy novel. Publisher's Weekly calls her "a fine folklorist and gifted narrator."
The book will collect the best of Marillier’s published stories, and additional tales written especially for this collection.
The sale was made via Russell Galen of the Scovil Galen Ghosh Literary Agency, Inc.
The collection is scheduled for publication in April 2013. The collection will be available in limited edition hardcover, trade hardcover and paperback, and ebook editions.

The hefty volume published by Ticonderoga Books assembles thirty-three stories where diversity is the main feature. Some tales have a distinct Aussie taste in terms of location and local sub-culture, which contributes to shed a new light on vampires, their habits and their personalities.

This book tickled me in so many ways. It's imaginative, well-written, fearless. Yes, fearless - this is a book which doesn't give a hillbilly rat's tail dipped in bourbon whether you like it or not.
