Summer in Orcus

Chapter Twenty-Seven
Chapter Twenty-Eight

aaaaand cover reveal for the collected edition (except I need to fiddle with kerning a bit more, there's some gaps in T. Kingfisher that need to be a smidgeon less gapped...)

I woke up this morning from dreams definitely influenced by "Summer in Orcus". Alas, they are mostly a haphazard mishmash rather than anything coherent. Nevertheless:

1) Summer writes a letter to Baba Yaga on the outside of one of those stiff brown mailer envelopes (used for sending photographs?)

2) A series of images, done in a very Vernonesque style: A tall column of intertwined stalks or long thin woody trunks. At the top, a rope is tied, connected to a large floating balloon. Summer climbs the column and grabs the rope, and floats off, presumably trying to do some sort of aerial survey. It struck me even in the dream as being a very poor way to travel, but perhaps it could be seen as an emotional metaphor.

3) Finally, there was something, perhaps from the letter in the first part, about a new residence being called "Summer of Doghope".

I really kind of like that last phrase, and I hope you use it in an sequel, or appendix, or coda, or whatever.
