The Ballad of Ballard and Sandrine
a new hardcover novella by Peter Straub

Hi Folks!

We'll be getting a very limited supply of The Ballad of Ballard and Sandrine by Peter Straub, a new hardcover novella coming out later this year from Subterranean Press, and it's priced at just $20, so we don't expect our supplies to last very long!

About the Book:
Subterranean Press is proud to offer a new novella by the author of Koko, Ghost Story, and A Dark Matter.

Meet Ballard and Sandrine, the eponymous protagonists of Peter Straub's extraordinary, deeply unsettling new novella. The two are lovers, widely separated in age but bound together by a common erotic obsession. Their story, which takes place over a period of twenty-five years, is set primarily within the various incarnations of a mysterious yacht making its endless way down the Amazon river. Their journey encompasses moments of beauty and horror, mystery and revelation, pleasure and pain, culminating in the vision of an astonishing — and appalling — apotheosis.

In The Ballad of Ballard and Sandrine, the author of the classic Blue Rose trilogy (Koko, Mystery, and The Throat) offers us one more glimpse behind the curtain that separates the visible world of commonplace events from an infinitely stranger world filled with wonders and enigmas, magic and terror. It is a world that only Peter Straub could have created and it burns its way indelibly into the reader's mind.
