The Winter Triptych

A Novella by

"'Winter Triptych' is a ghost story Maid Marion would have read to Robin Hood under the covers. Joan of Arc, discovering a kindred spirit a few chapters in, would straightway have dictated a fan letter to the author. Had the child Snow White been told this tale, she'd've knocked out stepmama's gimlet eye with one speedball pitch of her poisoned apple, then run away to the greenwood to join up with Black Meg and her outlaw band. Nicole Kornher-Stace plays with Time like it was her very own Tetris game. She has crafted a Winter Triptych out of words that reveals some startling new detail every time you open it." - C.S.E. Cooney, author of Jack o' the Hills

"'The Winter Triptych' is a gorgeous labyrinth of words, a vivid dream-world of ghosts, ruined towers, mad queens, and revenge biding its time. Its language is as rich as plum-cake, but it presents the reader with a challenge as well, parts that fit together like puzzle-pieces to form a story familiar and yet not, darker and stranger than the fairytale we remember. This is a story to savor by a fire on a cold night. Be warned: it will continue to sing in your head long after you have laid down the book." - Theodora Goss, author of In the Forest of Forgetting

This novella is part of Papaveria's "Wonder Tales" Series.
