We have a winner

“Wonder has no opposite; it springs up already doubled in itself, compounded of dread and desire at once, attraction and recoil, producing a thrill, the shudder of pleasure and of fear.” — Marina Warner


Thanks to everyone who entered Papaveria’s “Tell me my name” contest. We had a fantastic array of entries and the decision was not an easy one to make, but the fairy tale series does now have a name. I wanted something that said this is a fairy tale and I got it. While all of the entries were imaginative and delightful, it was the last minute offering from Deborah J. Brannon that took the prize. Papaveria is very pleased to announce the creation of our new series, Wonder Tales.

By the generosity of the authors, I was able to send out the full pdf of each book to every entrant. The winner, of course, will receive one each of the books themselves. And if you need a reminder, the two titles that will inaugurate this series are The Winter Triptych by Nicole Kornher-Stace and Jack o’ the Hills by C.S.E. Cooney. More information about each of these titles will be available shortly, but in the meantime I give you this peek at the cover art for Jack o’ the Hills, illustrated by the remarkable Rebecca Huston.

Thanks again to everyone who entered. Keep in touch, as we had so much fun reading the entries for this contest that we may just hold another one.
