To Hold the Bridge

A Short Fiction Collection

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...

A Regency romance with magical elements, featuring an eighteen-year-old heroine and a dashing young hero – and a case of mistaken identity.

After the Newington Emerald is stolen at the height of a conjured storm, eighteen-year-old Lady Truthful Newington goes to London to search for the magical heirloom of her house. But as no well-bred young lady can hunt the metropolis for a stolen jewel, she has to disguise herself as a man, and is soon caught up in a dangerous adventure where she must risk her life, her reputation and her heart.

Balancing twin roles as a young lady coming out in her first season and as an intrepid young man up against an evil sorceress isn’t easy, but Truthful has to manage it. Her father’s life and even the fate of England may depend upon her recovering the Newington Emerald!
