*THE HALCYON FAIRY BOOK by T. Kingfisher,* *edited by Sheila Perry*

NESFA Press is proud to announce the publication of *The Halcyon Fairy Book*
by T. Kingfisher, edited by Sheila Perry. This book was funded by Arisia,
Inc. in conjunction with their Guest of Honor, Ursula Vernon, at Arisia ’17.

*The Halcyon Fairy Book* collects Vernon’s wry and insightful commentary on
several traditional fairy tales, along with her first collection of
fairy-tale inspired original work, *Toad Words*, previously only available
as a self-published eBook. Eleven of these annotated fairy tales
(including, “The Crystal Casket”, a “Snow White” story exploring why the
Prince was so struck by an apparent corpse, and “The Wonderful Sheep” which
starts as *King Lear* and goes off on a tangent), are lightly edited from
their original appearances on her blog, and one, “The King of Love,” is
original to this limited-edition hardcover.

T. Kingfisher is the pen name of Ursula Vernon, a noted author of
children’s books, (including the popular multi-volume series *Dragonbreath,*
and *Harriet the Hamster Princess*), which Ursula Vernon uses when writing
for an adult audience. Her long-running comic *Digger* won the Hugo Award
for Graphic Fiction in 2012 and the Mythopoeic Fantasy Award for Adult
Literature in 2013. She also won the Nebula Award for best short story and
the WSFA Small Press Award for “Jackalope Wives” in 2015.

Under the T. Kingfisher name, she has published a series of fairy-tale
retellings, including *The Seventh Bride*, *The Raven and the Reindeer*,
and *Bryony and Roses*.

Ursula Vernon, who also did the illustration for the color dust jacket, has
won a number of Webcomic Choice Awards.

Edited by Sheila Perry.
