To Hold the Bridge

A Short Fiction Collection coming in June

With the novella To Hold the Bridge, Garth Nix continues to explore the magical world of the Old Kingdom series. 

Also included in this remarkable collection are eighteen short stories that showcase Nix’s versatility, as he adds a fantastical twist on an array of genres including science fiction, paranormal, realistic fiction, mystery, and adventure.

“Nix’s collection of richly imagined short fiction is a feast for speculative fiction fans of all ages.”

Newt's Emerald

A Regency romance with a fantasy twist...

Inspired by the works of Georgette Heyer and Jane Austen, Garth Nix’s Newt’s Emerald is a Regency romance with a fantasy twist. New York Times bestselling author Gail Carriger calls it “charming; quite, quite charming.” 

After Lady Truthful’s magical Newington Emerald is stolen from her she devises a simple plan: go to London to recover the missing jewel. She quickly learns, however, that a woman cannot wander the city streets alone without damaging her reputation, and she disguises herself as a mustache-wearing man. During Truthful’s dangerous journey she discovers a crook, an unsuspecting ally, and an evil sorceress—but will she find the Emerald?

NEWT'S EMERALD is out in Australia and New Zealand! Publication day was actually yesterday, but I was somewhat distracted. It should be in most bookshops and available online from Booktopia and elsewhere. The North American edition is out 13th October. Unfortunately there is no UK edition at least for now.

“Part comedy of manners, part fantasy adventure, this lighthearted romp is ridiculous fun.” Booklist (Starred Review)

“A delightful romp with dastardly plots and romantic confusions that would do Jane Austen proud. Fans of the author and of fantasy or Regency romance will enjoy this tale immensely." School Library Journal

“This romance should please the author’s regular readers and Georgette Heyer fans alike.” — Publishers Weekly

Emily BarneyFun covers! This is a great read - plus reading the afterword introduced me to another fun author and I got to spend the rest of the year enjoying books by Georgette Heyer (I know she's been around a while, but I hadn't heard of her and seeing the company she kept in his list of influences made me sure I'd enjoy her).1 week ago

Sarah BinghamSo very excited for this. While your books are exceptionally re-readable (I have a very well-loved set of Abhorsen and Keys to the Kingdome novels to vouch), a new adventure is always fun. Come ON October!3 weeks ago
