I am Meredith Gentry, P.I., solving cases in Los Angeles, far from the peril and deception of my real home–because I am also Princess Meredith, heir to the darkest throne faerie has to offer. The Unseelie Court infuses me with its power. But at what price does such magic come? How much of my human side will I have to give up, and how much of the sinister side of faerie will I have to embrace? To sit on a throne that has ruled through bloodshed and violence for centuries, I might have to become that which I dread the most. Enemies watch my every move. My cousin Cel strives to have me killed even now from his prison cell. But not all the assassination attempts are his. Some Unseelie nobles have waited centuries for my aunt Andais, Queen of Air and Darkness, to become weak enough that she might be toppled from her throne. Enemies unforeseen move against us–enemies who would murder the least among us. The threat will drive us to allow human police into faerie for the first time in our history. I need my allies now more than ever, especially since fate will lead me into the arm of Mistral, Master of Storms, the queen’s new captain of her guard. Our passion will reawaken powers long forgotten among the warriors of the sidhe. Pain and pleasure await me–and danger, as well, for some at that court seek only death. I will find new joys with the butterfly-winged demi-fey. My guards and I will show all of faerie that violence and sex are as popular among the sidhe as they are among the lesser fey of our court. The Darkness will weep, and Frost will comfort him. The gentlest of my guards will find new strength and break my heart. Passions undreamed of await us–and my enemies gather, for the future of both courts of faerie begins to unravel.

POETRY TEXTS & ANTHOLOGIES. This is the first anthology of British surrealist writing in the world. Herbert Read's words when he opened the 'Surrealist Poems and Objects' exhibition at the London Gallery at midnight on 24 November 1937 provide the title. The British surrealist movement was, as it were, ploughed under by the Second World War which, as Read spoke, was gathering force. Yet Surrealist output was vibrant and - at its best - durable, and now takes its place in the wider European context of literary Surrealism. Remy's anthology represents one coherent and deeply committed aspect of British poetry between 1930 and 1980. It was the only surrealist movement in Europe to be active, and freely so, during World War II. Here the original texts, most of them unfindable or previously unpublished, emerge from what proved a temporary oblivion. The work is fascinating, stimulating and various. British surrealist writing is at last given a chance to voice its subversion.
