Today, ARB received a print (paperback) review copy of Minerva Cerridwen‘s new transgender fairy tale novella The Dragon of Ynys from indie SFF publisher Atthis Arts.

If you are interested in reviewing this book—especially as a trans, nonbinary, or genderqueer critic or writer—please reach out to the editors to express your interest in reviewing the book for ARB. Please note: Because of mailing costs, this item is limited to reviewers located only in the U.S.

From the publisher:

Every time something goes missing from the village, Sir Violet makes his way to the dragon’s cave and negotiates the item’s return. It’s annoying, but at least the dragon is polite.

But when the dragon hoards a person, that’s a step too far. Sir Violet storms off to the mountainside to escort the baker home, only to find a more complex mystery—a quest that leads him far beyond the cave. Accompanied by the missing baker’s wife and the dragon himself, the dutiful village knight embarks on his greatest adventure yet.

The Dragon of Ynys is an inclusive fairy tale for all ages.

Audience: The Dragon of Ynys is intended for a wide audience, primarily those, of any age, who love fairy tales, dragons, or stories of acceptance and hope. It was written as the fairy tale the author wished she’d had as a child, but it is intended for adult readers as well. The Dragon of Ynys can be read by adults and children, by adults to children, and in groups or story time sessions of any composition. It should be enjoyed by those desiring aromantic and/or asexual representation as well as trans representation, and those who would enjoy the storytelling of an aro, ace, and genderqueer author. Whatever your reason for inviting our little fairy tale into your life, we hope that you enjoy it.

About the author:

Minerva Cerridwen is a genderqueer aromantic asexual writer and pharmacist from Belgium. She enjoys baking, drawing and handlettering
