Unboxing Armed in Her Fashion

Kate Heartfield is GREAT, and let me tell you why:

Happiness in a a box!
As it may have come to your attention, we had selected her fantasy standalone "Armed in Her Fashion" quite a while ago, but had difficulties supplying due to various problems - among other things, internal turmoils going on at publisher ChiZine. We just couldn't find any copies. In a fit of despair, Arne Beutell, List-Master of the Otherland Speculative Fiction Book Club, and Marc started contacting Kate Heartfield to tell her about our situation, to which she answered that she is currently trying to recuperate the rights to this book, but still has copies that she kindly offered to send us. So imagine our joy when we received the package yesterday and unboxed a bunch of SIGNED copies of this wonderful book along with book marks, personalized Kate Heartfield stickers, promotion cards for her upcoming book and finally a super sweet letter to the book club members!

We also got bookmarks, stickers and cards!
We all were delighted by her kind gesture and wish her all the best while getting the rights for her book back! Which, by the way is totally worth your time - see my review I wrote last year.
We are now stocked with signed copies of "Armed in Her Fashion" which we will be discussing on March 13th. If your new year's resolution was to read more books too, or to finally join us, or you just want to have a great historical fantasy read, you can still grab a copy at the bookstore.

January 24 -  Combined and Uneven Apocalypse by Evan Calder Williams (Speculative Theory BC)

Thank you Kate!!!!
