Publisher's Summary

There is only one truth Gorel of Goliris - gunslinger, addict, touched by the Black Kiss - is interested in: Finding a way back home, to the great empire from which he had been stolen as a child and from which he had been flung, by sorcery, far across the World.
It started out simple: Get to Falang-Et, find the mirror, find what truth it may hold. But nothing is simple for Gorel of Goliris...
When Gorel forms an uneasy alliance - and ménage à trois- with an Avian spy and a half-Merlangai thief, things only start to get complicated.
Add a murdered merchant, the deadly Mothers of the House of Jade, the rivalry of gods and the machinations of a rising Dark Lord bent on conquest, and things start to get out of hand. Only one thing’s for sure: By the time this is over, there will be blood.
Not to mention sex and drugs...or guns and sorcery.

Critic Reviews

"BFS Award 2012, Best Novella ‘Tidhar has created something uniquely his own - a delightfully Weird pulp tale that could easily sit on a shelf alongside Leiber, Vance and Moorcock... Tidhar's world-building is a joy to read... This is an excellent planned and exuberantly executed fantasy about a gunslinging god-slayer in a land where fairy tales transcend anthropology to become biology. At no point does the story veer towards the ponderous or worthy, instead it stays true to its pulp literature antecedents and keeps the pace up throughout. The dialogue is sparse, the description errs on the side of tantalizing and the action is undeniably heroic. This is a story about sex, drugs and frog people - what more could you ask for?" (Pornokitsch)
