The Honey Month by Amal El-Mohtar from Cheeky Frawg!

Cheeky Frawg Books, an ebook imprint from Ann and Jeff Vandermeer, has just released the exquisite and wonderful The Honey Month by Amal El-Mohtar. It is a series of short fiction/prose poems describing the tastes of 28 different kinds of honey. Read more about here.

If you haven't read El-Mohtar, make yourself familiar. She is a superb writer, having written one of my favorite short stories of last year, "The Green Book," in Apex Magazine; as well as a fantastic piece in the Vandermeer-edited The Thackery T. Lambshead Cabinet of Curiosities anthology (which you should probably buy), called "The Singing Fish."

The Honey Month is the first of many ebooks Cheeky Frawg has lined up over the 6 months (although they already have an impressive lineup - see the first link above). I'm particularly looking forward to the ODD? Anthology, featuring new and established writers as well as translations, The Divinity Student by the genius Michael Cisco, The Troika by Stepan Chapman, Jagannath - a short fiction collection from the truly inspiring Karin Tidbeck, Women of the Supernatural edited by Ray Russell, and, well, pretty much everything they're releasing for the foreseeable future. Really, I'm only getting a Kindle so I can own these books (ebooks? boks? boiks? bookannaths?).
