New Alice Book by Carroll, by R.J. Carter


The Trades has a review of a forthcoming novel by R.J. Carter, with illustrations by Lucy Wright, which continues Alice’s story picking up nine months after the end of Through the Looking Glass.

Alice’s Journey Beyond the Moon “has been written as if it were a ‘lost’ Carroll manuscript and then presented as a book, complete with footnotes to explain all the references” (David J. Howe of Telos Publishing Ltd. in a post to the Lewis Carroll mailing list). Carter, according to Howe, “began taking notes on an idea gleaned from a drawing of a book in a stack of books that didn’t exist in an issue of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman comic.”

The book will be published in August, but can be pre-ordered at Amazon.

In the meantime, if you feel like visiting the Man in the Moon have a look at my edition of The Flight of the Old Woman Who Was Tossed up in a Basket.
