Baba Yaga's Daughter Ancient rivals, best of friends, worst of enemies: dragonlord Janx and master vampire Eliseo Daisani are the threads upon which a tapestry of lives and loves are woven across the centuries. From the coldest Russian nights to the heat of Chicago’s greatest fire, nothing brings the immortal adversaries together–or tears them apart–like a woman.

And there is always a woman.

Vanessa Grey has been at Daisani’s side for decades, but the secrets borne by a witch may be her undoing. Baba Yaga’s daughter has plots that are decades in the hatching, but they may only succeed if Margrit Knight, named “the Negotiator” by Daisani and Janx themselves, will work with her. And there are others: the greatest vampire hunter mankind has ever known, and a woman for whom the Old Races are a wonder to walk away from.

Revisit C.E. Murphy’s world of the Old Races with eight stories that delve into the past and future of the two most beloved characters from her urban fantasy trilogy The Negotiator!



BABA YAGA’S DAUGHTER should be be available for pre-order later this month (or early in February) so I’ll be doing this all over again then, but SQUEE! I’m really, really excited about this book. It’s going to be SO beautiful, and I’m very pleased with the stories in it, so holy beans, I hope you guys will like it too. EEEEEEEEE!

V. large full cover behind the cut! Worth clicking through! I PROMISE!

Baba Yaga's Daughter

That? Is just fabulous.

*waves hands in awed agitation* You have no idea, either. I mean, it reflects the book *so incredibly well*. Every element on the cover is meaningful to a story. I'm just agog. I love it so so so so so much!

Agog is good. Actually, agog is ideal. We should be agog; we deserve to be agog. I did always feel that Gog and Magog were missing a trick, one each...

That is simply gorgeous.

At the risk of being dense or just having missed something, are all the stories from the ORSSP going in to this volume or is there some overlap or are they completely different sets of stories?

Great cover, btw.

They're a completely different set of stories! This one will contain the patrons-only-published "Hot Time" novella as its anchor, "From Russia, With Love" from the FANTASY MEDLEY anthology, and the web-published "Five Card Draw" along with five other brand new stories.

And OMFG, a Canty!!! So, so, SOOOOOOOO gorgeous! I luff it already! (I wonder if the print from the paper will be done in a copper-toned foil, which would just be ridiculously stunning.)
Mary Annepers1stence on January 6th, 2012 05:09 pm (UTC)
ah! looking forward to it....

Awesome cover!!

Did you say from @subpress? If so, good, because I am on their mailing list and I will know when it's coming.
