An exclusive, profusely illustrated hardcover novella related to Caitlín's harrowing new novel, Threshold! Late one night, on a lonely south Georgia highway, a very strange car picks up an even stranger hitchhiker and the fates of all concerned become inextricably intertwined. Meet Dancy Flammarion, an orphaned albino girl who talks to angels and is intent on ridding the world of monsters. But what happens when one of the monsters decides to use her for his own dark ends? In the Garden of Poisonous Flowers is award-winning fantasist Caitlín R. Kiernan's first-ever novella, giving us a glimpse into the life of Dancy Flammarion shortly before her appearance in Kiernan's critically-acclaimed second novel, Threshold. This gritty yet decadent story of ghouls, corruption, and talking bears, draws us deeply into a world of madness and betrayal, forbidden appetites and deadly intrigue, and the light that shines from the most unlikely of heroes. In the Garden of Poisonous Flowers includes a full-color dustjacket and ten black and white interior illustrations by Dame Darcy. The Limited and edition also includes "On the Road to Jefferson," a previously unpublished chapbook available only with the novella, with cover art by CaitlĚn R. Kiernan.
