Waiting on Wednesday: The Habitation of the Blessed by Catherynne M. Valente

>>Wednesday, October 6, 2010

Here's my choice for this week's Waiting on Wednesday,  hosted by Breaking the Spine.I really enjoyed Valente's other books (In the Night Garden and Palimpsest) so when I heard she had a new series coming I was really excited!

Title: Habitation of the Blessed
Series: A Dirge for Prester John, #1
Author: Catherynne M. Valente
Publication Date: November 1st, 2010

From Goodreads:

Brother Hiob of Luzern, on missionary work in the East on the eve of the sixteenth century, stumbles across a miraculous tree whose fruits are books. . .books which chronicle the Kingdom of Prester John. The Habitation of the Blessed recounts the fragmented narratives found within these miraculous volumes, revealing John's rise to power. . .from John's own viewpoint... from the viewpoint of his wife Hagia, and from the viewpoint of Hajji, a prayer-cantor who vowed to end John's illegitimate reign. World Fantasy Award nominee Catherynne M. Valente reimagines the legends of Prester John in this stunning tour de force.
