Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell (click the link to read my review)was the blockbuster novel of 2004. With massive sales and goodness knows how many awards, it made its author Susannah Clarke a household name. As it reputedly took ten years for her to write, a sequel is not expected any time soon. However a collection of her various short fiction set in the delicately depicted world of Faerie is published by Bloomsbury in October, and features illustrations by the eminent artist Charles Vess.
This eagerly awaited release is issued in hardcover, cloth bound and stamped, but without a jacket. There is also an export trade paperback, but wily collectors will have preordered the special limited edition direct from the publisher!
