I just saw a listing on amazon.com for Bride of Frankenstein. Coming out as a mass market paperback in Sept. 06.
First off, VERY EXCITED!!!! And is this the book you had mentioned previously that was set in Berlin? Or am I confusing this with something else?
Also, just finished re-reading Mortal Love. Got a lot more out of it the 2nd time around. Really a fabulous novel.
Hope you're well and happy,
Mark in CT

Hi Mark -- thanks for such an enthusiastic reponse! Yes, this is the book set in Weimar Berlin, a sort of confabulation of the Bride with various figures from classic German cinema -- Lulu, Fritz Lang's Fembot and Rotwang, Dr. Caligari, et al. It should be a lot of fun.
I'm glad too that you enjoyed rereading ML. I wanted it to be a book that rewarded more than one reading -- it kind of demands it, really -- so I'm happy it worked that way for at least one person!

They added the cover artwork!!!
Captures the German cinema aesthetic. Very GLAM!
Liz, all your cover art has always been a step above the usual, I'm curious if you have final cover approval?

The artist is Stephen Youll, and he really did do a great job. I've been pretty lucky with cover art, and yes, in a few cases I've had some input into what was done, though never actual approval. More like making suggestions and then steering folks towards particular artists or designers or painters. In the case of BILBIOMANCY, there was a particular 19th century painting I wanted to use, and I was very fortunate in that Pete Crowther, editor and publisher of PS Publishing, tracked down the painting and acquired the rights to reproduce it.
