Finely illustrated by Santiago Caruso. Collectors edition limited to only 100 hand numbered copies.The Peacock Escritoire is less a simple gathering of fine stories and more of an homage to the many different copes, dalmatics and mosaics of the Old World.

Think about it as a fabulous wayward Exposition Internationale catalogue of epiphanies, wonders, sacred mysteries and veiled heresies. If St. Petersburg had survived civil war and become an international city where trafficking in holy relics drew certain powers in- if the soothsayers of Prague saw the truth in the fortunes of a young street artist- if the author of Dr Saprophyte knew what his friends thought of his books- if a dream museum released its dreams- if a dying Russian futurist knew more than he could say- if an Alexandrian jasper held the clue to serpentine secrets- if a stranger returned a Judas coin- all these possibilities and more are to be found in the latest collection of short stories by Mark Valentine.

Seven fantastic new stories and six published but hard to find, they follow the admired work in his previous collections, The Nightfarers and The Mascarons of the Late Empire & Other Studies.ContentsThe Ka of AstarakhanThe Late PostA Revelation of CormorantsThe Amber CigaretteSime in SamarkandMorpheus HouseThe Antioch ImperialA Certain PowerThe Tontine of ThirteenThe Second MasterThe Autumn KeeperThe Days on Castel RossoEchoes of SaumurzThe Return to TrebizondThe Old LightThe Peacock Escritoire Box Set contents:i.
