A review of Hal Duncan’s Testament has been published on The Future Fire website.

“Ultimately, Testament is a fascinating exercise in reconsidering revealed truth. Duncan’s book ends with the Fall of an Empire, a Pilate in riot gear, and the Everyman on the precipice of a new world in the making. Given how profoundly we, too, are on the brink, with rising fascism and global catastrophe edging ever forward, it’s well worth considering what roles we ourselves want to play in this new world, whether as readers or revolutionaries.”

Thanks to Cait Coker for this one!

cover_testament_fullTwo new Eibonvale titles are now available for order – and two very exciting ones.  The first is a substantial new novel by Hal Duncan (author of Vellum and Ink) – Testament.

In the 21st century, a scalpel slices bible pages, passages spliced to restore lost truth. In the days of King Herod, the messias rises, calling to black sheep: walk with me. Now, here, between two aeons and across Æternity, a beloved student rebuilds his Gospel for the era of Anonymous: anarchist, socialist, atheist, revolutionary. Forget the tale you were spun and open your ears to the teacher who said, I will have mercy and not sacrifice. From the Hebridean fishing village of Capernaum, to a Jerusalem under Il Duce Pontius Pilate…

The Empire ends today.

cover_scarcity_fullThe second new title is Scar City, a new collection by Joel Lane.  This book was submitted to Eibonvale shortly before the author’s death and I am very excited indeed to release it now.  It contains 22 stories and an essay by Nina Allan on the author’s Blue trilogy of novels.

Both of these are available to order now in hardcover, with paperbacks to follow.  If anyone is interested in review copies, don’t hesitate to get in touch with details.
