Debbie Gallagher - The Spider's Bride (Prime, 2007)

This review just posted on LibraryThing. com and ReadingSocia/Visual Bookshelf for ISBN 9780809572113:
Magical in every sense, this novel explores the ideas of Richard Dadd in a world of poetic vision. This is a fairy story without sentimentality or self-deprecation. It weaves ancient allegories with nineteenth century sensibilities and 21st century experience. Had I first seen this in a shop I would have passed it over because the print finishing is so shoddy. The inconstant margins and the mean typography scream of self-publishing (which is not to decry all such work but I know the odds). That an established publishing house, no matter how small, released a book in this state disappoints me and I hope that future works will be published by someone who cares more for quality.

Why for the mature warning?

Or are all hack publishers under the age of 14? Heheh
Good point! I just left it at my journal default. At your prompting I have opened the post to even the most juvenile publisher.
