    y separately published work icon Sourdough and Other Stories Angela Slatter , United Kingdom (UK) : Tartarus Press , 2010 Z1770318 2010 selected work short story fantasy Welcome to the beautiful magic, restless passion and exquisite horror of Angela Slatter's impeccably imagined tales. In the cathedral-city of Lodellan and its uneasy hinterland, babies are fashioned from bread, dolls are given souls and wishes granted may be soon regretted. There are ghosts who dream, men whose wings have been clipped and trolls who long for something other. Love, loss and life are elegantly dissected in Slatter's earthy yet poetic prose. As Rob Shearman says in his Introduction: "Sourdough and Other Stories manages to be grand and ambitious and world-building -- but also as intimate and focused as all good short fiction should be... The joy of Angela Slatter's book is that she's given us a set of fairy tales that are at once both new and fresh, and yet feel as old as storytelling itself."
