This month we publish Ian Williams’ eagerly anticipated The Lady Doctor. Next month we have Be With by Mike Barnes. March sees the launch of New Daughters of Africa edited by Margaret Busby, and in April we introduce Lisa Blower’s award-winning short stories, It’s Gone Dark Over Bill’s Mother’s.
Graphic novels have swept up several awards already and it’s only January. Becoming, Unbecoming just won The Prix Artémisia: Fight for Feminism, and the Broken Frontier Awards celebrated several Myriad titles: Escaping Wars and Waves and Marie Duval were shortlisted, and The Inking Woman reached the top spot for Best Book on Comics.
If that wasn’t enough fantastic news, Myriad’s Creative Director and curator of the prestigious graphic novel list, Corinne Pearlman, was inducted into the Broken Frontier Hall of Fame.
