Description

PRE-ORDER THE BOOK

Join us in celebrating the launch of Rachel Pollack's 40th book in print -THE FISSURE KING: A Novel in Five Stories

In the classic noir tradition of "Have Gun, Will Travel," Rachel Pollack--one of the world's foremost authorities on the Tarot--gives us the tale of Jack Shade, an occult shaman for hire. Jack Shade has a secret, and this hidden part of his past sends him on a journey through time and space and a great number of metaphysical doorways. From the cosy poker table in the eleventh floor apartment of the Hotel de Reve Noire to the ethereal Forest of Souls to the faded houses along the Gold River, Jack flows in and out of this world. Even when his own duplicate hires him to kill himself, Jack is mercury in motion. Jack the Nimble. Jack the Quick.

The Fissure King collects the four existing Jack Shades novellas and shows us Jack's final trick--one last story that finally reveals Jack's true nature.

"I wrote fiction before I ever wrote (or even knew) about the Tarot. My six novels (and some thirty short stories) have included science fiction, magic realism, fairy tales, and mysteries. The common thread between them is the desire to explore the imagination and how it creates reality." - Rachel Pollack
