The Night Library of Sternendach: A Vampire Opera in Verse

In starry Sternendach, as long as
The vampire Graf has ruled this land
The Heller clan, with weapons strong as
Their wills, have killed his kindred and
Been killed in turn. The two sides nearly
Destroyed themselves. The Graf saw clearly
The need to make the killing cease,
And forced a pact to keep the peace.
The youngest of the Heller faction
Is Kunigunde. Trained to fight
It never suited her aright.
She can’t deny her soul’s attraction
For books and poetry, and for
The Graf, who gave her these and more.

My first novella, written (almost) entirely in Pushkin sonnets, comes out on April 13, 2021.
Inspired and influenced by Eugene Onegin, Verdi operas, and Revolutionary Girl Utena, it is now available for pre-order!

Ask for it at your local independent bookstore,
Lanternfish Press,

And don’t forget to sign up for my newsletter to get the news before anyone else.
