    Brother by Ania Ahlborn coming from Suntup Press:

    Have to admit I have never heard of this. I am intrigued and the price is reasonable so I am going to think about it.

    With a New Introduction by the Author
    Brother is the terrifying tale of a family’s disturbing traditions, and of one brother’s determination to break free from all he has ever known. In a crooked farmhouse off the beaten path and miles away from civilization live the Morrows. A band of eccentric recluses, the family keeps to themselves so as not to be questioned by local police when girls go missing from the side of the highway. But nineteen-year-old Michael Morrow is different. He derives no pleasure in the screams that echo through the trees.
    Michael pines for a life of normalcy and to see a world beyond that of West Virginia. In the nearby town of Dahlia, Michael meets Alice, a pretty girl working at a record shop. He is immediately smitten, but his family is all too eager to remind him of the monster he is.
    Hailed by critics as “impossible to put down,” Ahlborn delivers all the guilt, guts, and gore of family drama as Michael fights to attain the life he longs for.

    The signed limited edition of Brother by Ania Ahlborn is presented in two states, and is limited to five hundred and twenty-six copies. The edition measures 6¼” x 9¼” and features six full-color illustrations by World Fantasy Award winner Samuel Araya. Also included is a new introduction by Ania Ahlborn, and both editions are signed by the author and artist. This is the first signed limited edition of the novel, and the first time it is issued in hardcover. All copies ship with a Brother bookmark.

    The Limited edition of 500 copies is bound in Indiana Walnut handmade paper by paper and print artist Andrea Peterson. This unique archival paper is made from a 100% cotton rag sheet that has been coated with a black walnut dye from the artist’s trees on her homestead. The sheets are crumpled to soften, brush dyed and finally coated with a thin layer of shellac to seal the walnut. Endsheets are Hahnemühle Bugra and the cover features two hits of foil stamping. The book is housed in a cloth slipcase. $275

    The Lettered edition is limited to 26 copies and is a Bradel binding with a Goatskin spine, and handmade paper boards. The paper is made by master paper maker Amanda Degener in her windowless basement workspace which is a ‘cave’ of hewn rock walls. The floor is an unsteady mix of concrete, brick, and in some areas a wooden raised floor, giving way to the earth below. Endsheets are hand marbled in a small village in Southern France with oil based pigments on acid free Fabriano Ingres. The edition is housed in a clamshell box. $2,150
