Subterranean Press is proud to present two novellas set in Tim Lebbon's signature world of Noreela!
Vale of Blood Roses:
A mercenary should be allowed to quit. That's what Jakk thinks. But his companions don't want to quit. As the Cataclysmic War ends they enter a valley that should not exist, see machines that should be dead, and interrupt something that should be left alone. There's regret, but some actions can't be undone. There's hope, but it's so obviously false. And there's revenge.
Korrin is a Bajuman, vilified for some vague wrongdoing in his people's past. He s also a hunter, making his living tracking down lost people, forgotten things. Charged with finding a missing fodder member of an ancient race originally bred for food--he soon realises a painful truth. In Noreela City, still recovering from the Great Plagues, everyone is lost

Noreela, the postapocalyptic world that serves as the setting for Lebbon's fantasy-horror hybrids Dusk and Dawn, is the backdrop for the two loosely plotted novellas that make up this collection. In Vale of Blood Roses, a former soldier finds himself haunted by the crimes of his past when survivors track him down and threaten his family with a gruesome form of death-in-life if he won't help them find their way home. The Bajuman blends high fantasy with hard-boiled detection in its account of a bounty hunter who partners with a warrior mercenary to rescue a kidnapped fodder, or member of a race traditionally bred for food. Whereas the first of these tales is indisputably fantastic in terms of its imagery and set pieces, the second reads like a straight crime caper set in an exotic land. In each, Lebbon vividly describes the landscape and local color. Readers who have enjoyed other books in the Noreela series will find these tales a tide-me-over until the next full-length novel.
