    September is a girl who longs for adventure. When she is invited to Fairyland by a Green Wind and a Leopard, well, of course she accepts. (Mightn’t you?)

    September has been crowned queen of Fairyland, but the kingdom is in chaos. The magic of a dodo egg has brought every king, queen, and marquess of Fairyland back to life, all with claims to the throne and their own plots and histories. In order to make sense of it all, and to save their friend from a job she doesn't want, A-Through-L and Saturday devise a Royal Race, a Monarchical Marathon, in which every would-be ruler will chase the Stoat of Arms across the nation, and the first to seize the poor beast will be crowned.

    Between life and death, dreaming and waking, at the train stop beyond the end of the world is the city of Palimpsest. To get there is a miracle, a mystery, a gift, and a curse - a voyage permitted only to those who’ve always believed there’s another world than the one that meets the eye. Those fated to make the passage are marked forever by a map of that wondrous city tattooed on their flesh after a single orgasmic night. To this kingdom of ghost trains, lion-priests, living kanji, and cream-filled canals come four travelers.

But when he turns 12, he stumbles upon a way back home, to a Fairyland much changed from the one he remembers.

But Koschei has never before been seen through the eyes of Catherynne Valente, whose modernized and transformed take on the legend brings the action to modern times, spanning many of the great developments of Russian history in the 20th century.

    This is the story of a place that never was: the kingdom of Prester John, the utopia described by an anonymous, 12th-century document which captured the imagination of the medieval world and drove hundreds of lost souls to seek out its secrets, inspiring explorers, missionaries, and kings. But what if it were all true? What if there was such a place, and a poor, broken priest once stumbled past its borders, discovering, not a Christian paradise, but a country where everything is possible....

    The Christian Patriarch of Constantinople is fighting a holy war against the forces of Islam. His attempts to rally the support of Europe fail to give him the strength he needs against the forces of Islam. Fearing defeat, he sends his appeals to the great Christian king in the East, Prester John - for the Patriarch was once a boy named Kostas, a novice in the service of John, long before he became king. The Patriarch’s message, seemingly via divine providence, manages to cross into the world of John’s Kingdom, where John’s devotion to Christ overcomes his wife’s misgivings.

    Mit einem süßen Hündchen spielen und darauf warten, dass die Mutter aus der Fabrik heimkommt -das reicht der zwölfjährigen September nicht. Als der Grüne Wind an ihr Fenster kommt, stürzt sie sich mit ihm ins Abenteuer und reitet auf der Leopardin der leichten Lüfte ins Feenland. Dort wird sie gebraucht: Die grausame Marquess, nicht älter als September selbst, verlangt, dass ihr ein magisches Schwert aus dem Gespinstwald gebracht wird.
