Here's a recent publication that was delayed a bit for production issues, but is out now and available.

In my anthology Tales Before Narnia (2008), I included a story which partly inspired The Great Divorce by C.S. Lewis. That story was "The Man Who Lived Backwards" by Charles F. Hall.  Hall wrote two other short stories, making in total three stories, all in the style of H.G. Wells.  This booklet collects all three stories, the entire known output by the promising Charles F. Hall. Ordering details below.

The Man Who Lived Backwards and Other Stories, by Charles F. Hall

A New Book!

Nodens Books is pleased, at last, to announce a new publication is out! (More new books coming soon.)

Here is a long-overdue reprint of The Laughing Elf, by Ronald MacDonald, the only fairy story by Ronald in the style of his famous father, George MacDonald. On its original publication in 1922, Henry Savage called it:
“A work of genius, bringing with it what Walter Pater calls ‘a strange new beauty.’ . . . it is going to last, is this book of fairy tales strung on a string as it were. The author is Ronald MacDonald, a son of that George MacDonald whose name is one still to conjure with”

Order details and formats follow.
