LOOK AT THIS THING:
That gorgeous thing is the cover for the upcoming anthology Corvidae, the second volume in Rhonda Parrish’s Magical Menageries series.
Check out how cool this book is going to be:
Associated with life and death, disease and luck, corvids have long captured mankind’s attention, showing up in mythology as the companions or manifestations of deities, and starring in stories from Aesop to Poe and beyond.
In Corvidae birds are born of blood and pain, trickster ravens live up to their names, magpies take human form, blue jays battle evil forces, and choughs become prisoners of war. These stories will take you to the Great War, research facilities, frozen mountaintops, steam-powered worlds, remote forest homes, and deep into fairy tales. One thing is for certain, after reading this anthology, you’ll never look the same way at the corvid outside your window.
Featuring works by Jane Yolen, Mike Allen, C.S.E. Cooney, M.L.D. Curelas, Tim Deal, Megan Engelhardt, Megan Fennell, Adria Laycraft, Kat Otis, Michael S. Pack, Sara Puls, Michael M. Rader, Mark Rapacz, Angela Slatter, Laura VanArendonk Baugh, and Leslie Van Zwol.
(There are a lot of awesome names up there. Plus I will never get tired of seeing my name in the same list as Jane Yolen’s.)
((OK, I’m going to scroll up and look at that cover again.))
(((OK, I’m back.)))
Corvidae will be released on July 7, so you’re going to want to start saving your shinies now. This is one book you will definitely want to have in your nest.
