Out now: The Last Dragoners of Bowbazar

Out now: The Last Dragoners of Bowbazar

Cover art for my novella The Last Dragoners of Bowbazar, by Tran Nguyen. A painting of an androgynous figure of uncertain gender in elaborate, brightly patterned robes and jewellery, a veil over their face, stroking the long neck of a dragon enfolding them in its wings, its skin and scales white and violet, reminiscent of a flower's petals.

Out today: my novella The Last Dragoners of Bowbazar (Subterranean Press), which follows Ru, a ‘boy from nowhere’ coming of age in ’90s/’00s Calcutta, in an extended family who may be migrants from another reality, and Alice, a neighbour from the nearby Chinatown he longs to share their secrets with.

You can buy the signed, limited, numbered hardcover edition of The Last Dragoners of Bowbazar, with a gorgeous cover painting by Tran Nguyen, here. Ghibli-inflected mythic realism, for adults: https://subterraneanpress.com/tldob/

Unfortunately, due to supply chain issues caused by various global factors, my publisher tells me there’ll be a 1-2 month delay in sending out the hardcovers. My sincere apologies to those who’ve so kindly preordered the book for the lengthy wait. So, as of now, the limited hardcover is effectively still in preorder mode–you can still order it above, with my immense gratitude.

The much more affordable ebook edition of The Last Dragoners of Bowbazar is, however, available to buy and read at online retailers. And please feel welcome to ask your local libraries to get either edition too. Some links to the ebook edition below:
