Under My Hat – Table of Contents revealed

Having returned from my lengthy travels, it occurs to me that I may not have officially released the full table of contents for my young adult fantasy anthology, Under My Hat: Tales from the Cauldron, and given that I’m fully occupied with copyedits and other things for the book, now seems like a good time.   So, here it is!

  3. “Payment Due”, Frances Hardinge

Under My Hat will be published by the completely marvelous Jim Thomas & co. at Random House Childrens’ in the US in October 2012 (just in time for Halloween!). I honestly feel this is probably the best book I’ve ever worked on, so I’m incredibly excited about this.

  7. Hi Jonathan, I’m so excited about this book, alas the edition uploaded to Kindle was a sampler only one. Could you give the publishers a boot to get the right one up? I am writing to them, too, but the more the merrier! Thank you for such a great idea, I look forward to reading it in full!
