The Blacktongue Thief by Christopher Buehlman
"This book does not set any new precedents or bust open the genre. It is just exceptionally well written, with compelling, likeable characters, action aplenty, & an engaging, thoughtfully constructed world. As advertised, it is a perfect melding of Ab" Read more of this review »

“One of the hardest and truest things a grown-up learns is that sometimes it's not okay.”
Christopher Buehlman

“But when I make a good [taxidermy] mount I feel like I beat God in a small way. As though the Almighty said, Let such critter be dead, and I said, 'Fuck You, he can still play the banjo.”
Christopher Buehlman, Those Across the River

“A mundane lie hiding an exotic truth is deception; an exotic lie hiding a mundane truth is storytelling. Deception may be necessary to preserve life, but storytelling makes life worth living.”

Michele Congrats on the Shirley Jackson award nomination!


Stephanie Just stopped in at Garden District bookshop to pick up an autographed copy of your novel. Laughing that I had to go all the way to New Orleans to get it--and the clerk told me you had stopped in yesterday! This city is full of coincidences.
I'm looking forward to reading the book. Happy New Year and much success in 2012!
