Cover reveal! Cat Rambo’s new collection “Neither Here Nor There”

Posted: August 18, 2016 by Tod McCoy   -   2 Comments

At long last! Hydra House is proud to reveal the cover of Cat Rambo’s collection of fantasy short stories, Neither Here Nor There. This is a companion volume to her previous collection, Near + Far, and follows the same double-sided format that splits the book.


Front cover of Neither Here Nor There.

Neither Here Nor There collects many of Cat’s published fantasy work (as well as a few unpublished), split into two: Neither Here pulls together secondary world fantasy (including her Tabat world) and Nor There collects alt-Earth fantasy.

The collection will be released simultaneously in trade paperback, ebook, and a hardcover edition limited to 300 numbered copies.

You may recognize the cover art on both sides as the signature style of the talented Hugo winning artist Galen Dara.

Expected release date is December 15, and we will have copies at the World Fantasy Convention in Columbus!
