We are super excited to share Luna's latest cover!
BSFA shortlist artist, Bede Rogerson, has teamed up with #Orkney writer Barbara Stevenson, to create a vibrant cover for Where the Ocean Meets the Sky, Stevenson's first collection!
Surreal, humorous and downright out there, Barbara's stories will suck you right in and take you for a spin in a world of fantastical oddballs!
Barbara Stevenson's joined the luna family right when we started, five years ago. At the time we held a short story contest, Beyond Realities. Barbara qualified in the top ten on both editions of the contest, standing out right away for her sense of humour and sensibility.
If you are having a down day, I'd recommend one of her stories!
“I fell in love with fairy tales and fantasy on my eighth birthday when I was given not one, but two copies (independently) of Oscar Wilde’s Happy Prince and Other Stories.
I was captivated by characters such as The Selfish Giant, The Remarkable Rocket and The Devoted Friend. Conspicuously, they all died, but they died beautifully, leaving the glimmer of surreal magic behind.
Since then I have been on the trail of that speck of lagniappe – the seasoning that adds a deeper, more colourful dimension, without the soppy sentimentality.
The stories in this collection involve journeys or quests of one sort or another.”
The book will be out on the 19th of May. Pre-orders will open in March, so stay tuned!
