內容簡介

f����� Cir(qf��f��`f��f����������of��

  有一天,風神化身老紳士,邀請正在洗碗的女孩九月前往精靈國度。

  但精靈國度不是什麼好地方,宛如迷宮的道路、隨時亂跑的首都,還有一堆不合常理的童話人物。人狼浸淫唱詩班,巫婆不施法,飛龍的老爸居然是座圖書館!這裡不只怪里怪氣,還危險十足,統治精靈國度的好女王不見了!邪惡甜美的女爵取而代之,她飼養漆黑冷血的美洲豹,下令飛龍不准飛,星期二出生的人才能使用鍊金術,好女孩九月得去神祕森林幫她取回一把劍,但女爵故意不說森林深處的黑暗、詭譎,與名為「死亡」的小人兒……

  我是被故事選中的女孩嗎?精靈國度真的需要我嗎?在這不按牌理出牌的故事裡,九月努力尋找自己的歸屬。她冒險進入魔法森林,尋找失落神器,伴隨她的是一個叫「星期六」的男孩及嗜書如命的圖書館怪龍。

  女孩已有覺悟,冒險的過程將艱困血腥,但將出現奇蹟,九月追尋的就是奇蹟,流血也在所不惜。

  Twelve-year-old September lives in Omaha, and used to have an ordinary life, until her father went to war and her mother went to work. One day, September is met at her kitchen window by a Green Wind (taking the form of a gentleman in a green jacket), who invites her on an adventure, implying that her help is needed in Fairyland. The new Marquess is unpredictable and fickle, and also not much older than September. Only September can retrieve a talisman the Marquess wants from the enchanted woods, and if she doesn’t . . . then the Marquess will make life impossible for the inhabitants of Fairyland. September is already making new friends, including a book-loving Wyvern and a mysterious boy named Saturday.
 
  With exquisite illustrations by acclaimed artist Ana Juan, Fairyland lives up to the sensation it created when the author first posted it online. For readers of all ages who love the charm of Alice in Wonderland and the soul of The Golden Compass, here is a reading experience unto itself: unforgettable, and so very beautiful.

  ★本書中譯版《環遊精靈國度的女孩》由繆思出版。

作者簡介

凱瑟琳.M.瓦倫特(CATHERYNNE M. VALENTE)

  紐約時報暢銷作家,作品涵蓋奇幻小說、短篇小說與詩集。

  1979年生於西雅圖, 15歲高中畢業後即進入加大聖地牙哥分校以及愛丁堡大學,主修古典文學研究,特別專研於古希臘語言學。瓦倫特的作品多採集民間故事與神話元素,例如《一千零一夜》就是她重要的靈感來源;透過後現代與超現實的濾鏡重新詮釋精靈故事和類型轉義。瓦倫特戲稱自己這種創作類型為神話龐克(Mythpunk),不料竟因此開創一個新的小說流派。

  處女作《The Labyrinth》獲選為《軌跡雜誌》推薦書,此後其長篇小說履獲雨果獎、軌跡獎、世界奇幻獎提名,並榮獲2006年「詹姆斯.提普奇獎」(James Tiptree, Jr. Award)、2008年「創神文學獎」。而《環遊精靈國度的女孩》則史無前例以「根本還不存在於實體書」的形式贏得青少年奇科幻小說桂冠:安德蕾.諾頓文學獎(Andre Norton Award)。

  瓦倫特目前和丈夫、兩隻狗、一隻巨大友善的貓和另外一隻不那麼巨大也不那麼友善的貓定居於美國緬因州海外的一個小島。www.catherynnemvalente.com/
