Angelic – Kelley Armstrong – Subterranean Press

As a half-demon master of the dark arts, Eve Levine isn’t what anyone would call angelic. That’s exactly why the Fates chose her for the job. She’s their secret weapon against the forces of evil.

However after five years, Eve is tired of being the designated rebel of the angel corps, expected to break the rules, then penalized for it. When the leaderless djinn stage an uprising, Eve sees the perfect chance to get herself fired. As she plunges deeper into the demon world, though, she realizes she’s in danger of losing a lot more than her job.

The first Kelley Armstrong novella published by Subterranean Press (978-1-59606-246-7), this is set in the “Woman in the Otherworld” universe. Published in hardback in December 2009,  as two separate editions – this has also subsequently been made available as an eBook download.

Trade edition – fully bound in green cloth with a full colour cover illustration by Maurizio Manzieri, this has a pretty small print run of just 2,500 copies. Also contains 4 number of black and white internal illustrations. There is just a single printing of this edition which is identified as such by the words ‘First Edition’ on the copyright page.

The Limited edition is fully bound in leather (colour?) and has a pretty small print run – just 200 copies (plus an unknown number of Publisher Copies marked ‘PC’), This edition shares the same cover artwork as the trade edition – unlike the later volumes in the series which have unique covers for the limited editions. Signed by the author on a special signature page. I don’t have any specific pictures of this edition as I haven’t come across this in the wild – or currently online.

Prior to the publication of the hardcover a small number of Advance Uncorrected Proof copies were produced. These were published in paperback and do not feature either the cover or internal illustrations of the other editions.

Due to the small print runs copies of the trade edition are uncommon – expect prices for an unsigned copy to be £120-£150. If you can find a copy of the limited edition then expect to pay 3-4 as much. The Proof copy when available should be in the same region (if not a bit cheaper) than the trade edition.

Becoming – Kelley Armstrong – Subterranean Press – Graphic Novella

Elena Michaels has just been bitten by her boyfriend, psycho werewolf Clay Danvers. As the werewolf curse is slowly taking over her body and mind, she clings to the last shreds of her humanity, scared that her life will never be the same again. As per readers’ request, finally the tale of Elena’s Bite. ‘Becoming’ covers the darkest part of Elena’s introduction to life as a werewolf, and fills in an important chapter in the Otherworld story.

The Otherworld, a series of novels written by Kelley Armstrong. Elena Michaels is the world’s only female werewolf. And she’s tired of it. Tired of a life spent hiding and protecting, a life where her most important job is hunting down rogue werewolves. Tired of a world that not only accepts the worst in her— her temper, her violence—but requires it. Worst of all, she realizes she’s growing content with that life, with being that person.

Full colour graphic novella from a story by Kelley Armstrong set in the ‘Women of the Otherworld’ series. Illustrated by Anilgram and published as a hardcover by Subterranean Press in August 2011. Provided in two separate editions:

A limited edition of 1000 copies, fully bound in cloth signed by both the artist and the author.

 

  

A lettered edition of 26 copies, leather-bound, housed in a separate slipcase. The proceeds of this edition went to charity. 

Both editions are long sold out at the publisher – but the limited edition is still available online. Unlike the other Kelley Armstrong novellas published by Subterranean Press there is no unsigned, trade edition. As such the prices are higher than for the other novellas (such as Counterfeit Magic), but less than for the first novella (Angelic). Expect to pay £90-£100 for a fine copy of the limited edition. At this moment I can’t give a price for the lettered edition as a copy isn’t available online.

Counterfeit Magic – Kelley Armstrong – Subterranean Press

The first rule of a supernatural fight club? Don’t kill your opponent.

When the fighters come with lethal spells, werewolf strength and half-demon powers, that can be a lot tougher than it sounds. It’s hard to attract talent if they know they might not leave the ring alive. So when fighters at a California club start dying — it’s bad for business.

Witch detectives Paige Winterbourne and Savannah Levine take the case. Going undercover in the power-heavy arena of the fight club is a welcome change of pace for Paige, relegated to the role of The Wife as her husband struggles to find his place in his family’s Cabal–the corporate Mafia of the supernatural world.

As Paige is drawn deeper into new and dangerous corners of her world, she quickly discovers the greatest threat isn’t the killer in her sights. It’s something much, much closer to home. And this is one fight she can’t afford to lose.

The second Kelley Armstrong novella published by Subterranean Press – this follows on from the earlier volume ‘Angelic’. Set in the ‘Women of the Otherworld’ series and published in November 2010 in two separate editions. This was also subsequently made available as an eBook download.
