We craft and tell stories because we’ve stood on the uncertain edge between the waking world and our imagination, between enchantment and fear. And we remember other stories that help us build our own stories, scraps of lumber and fragments of narrative we gather together to make stories for ourselves.


I’m pretty sure that most of you who read this blog love beautiful books. And lot of you love beautiful e-books. And you presumably love beautiful websites.

So the good news is that Unsettling Wonder’s publisher, Papaveria Press, has just launched a beautiful website where you can by beautiful e-editions of their beautiful books. It’s not just a website, it’s an ebookstore, and it uncannily creates the same conviction that you cannot leave without taking this or that beautiful new title home with you. I wanted to buy everything and I don’t even have an e-reader. Another reason to check it out is it’s another way you can buy electronic editions of Unsettling Wonder. ‘Wonder Voyages’ is already there, and ‘Wise Fools’ will be accompanying it on release.

The launch of the new platform coincides with the release of the e-edition of C.S.E Cooney’s poetry collection How to Flirt in Faerieland, and Erzebet Yellowboy Carr, owner and publisher of Papaveria, has this to say about it:

I can think of no better way to celebrate National Poetry Month than to support the poets and the presses who publish them, and there is no better introduction to Fairieland than this fantastical offering by C.S.E. Cooney, who has clearly been to fairie and back again.

I would also like to take this opportunity to remind readers of my Call to Libraries. This offer now extends to any ebook in Papaveria’s small catalogue of digital editions. In a nutshell, I will donate any or all of our ebooks to any library who asks for them.

Thank you for reading.
