• Aux frontières de la Faërie, Lud-en-Brume est une cité prospère et paisible du pays de Dorimare. Mais les secrets hérités du royaume voisin ne sauraient rester indéfiniment dans l'ombre. Les fruits féeriques, drogue nocive et bannie de la société luddite, circulent dans la région. Ranulph semble en être victime, et son père, le Maire Nathaniel Chantecler, qui faisait jusqu'à maintenant régner la Loi d'une poigne molle et tranquille, se doit bientôt de faire l'impensable pour sauver son fils et sa cité. Mais heureusement pour Lud-en-Brume, Nathaniel est doté d'un esprit des plus pragmatiques... et d'une tête dans la lune !Écrit d'une plume ironique, dans un style riche et coloré, Lud-en-Brume est un chef-d'oeuvre inclassable de l'imaginaire.Préface de Neil Gaiman.Introduction de Douglas A. Anderson.Prix Elbakin.net 2016 du meilleur roman fantasy traduitTraduit de l'anglais par Julie Petonnet-Vincent. 

  • Hope Mirrlees (1887-1978) has long been regarded as the lost modernist. Her extraordinary long poem Paris (1920), a journey through a day in post First World War Paris, was considered by Virginia Woolf obscure, indecent, and brilliant'. Read today, the poem retains its exhilarating daring. Mirrlees's experimentalism looks forward to The Waste Land; her writing is integral to the twentieth-century canon. And yet, after Paris, Mirrlees published no more poetry for almost half a century, and her later poems appear to have little in common with the avant garde spirit of Paris. In this first edition to gather the full span of Mirrlees's poetry, Sandeep Parmar explores the paradoxes of Mirrlees's development as a poet and the complexities of her life. Sandeep Parmar was the first scholar to gain access to the Mirrlees Archive at Newnham College, Cambridge, and her edition includes many previously unpublished poems discovered there in draft form. The text is supported by detailed notes, including a commentary on Paris by Julia Briggs, and a selection of Mirrlees's essays. The generous introduction provides the most accurate biographical account of Mirrlees's life available. Mirrlees's Collected Poems is an indispensible addition to a reading of modernism.
