Description:

Pick your poison: Vampires, devils, werewolves, faeries, or . . . ? Find them all here in Holly Black’s amazing first collection. In her debut collection, *New York Times* best-selling author Holly Black returns to the world of Tithe in two darkly exquisite new tales. Then Black takes readers on a tour of a faerie market and introduces a girl poisonous to the touch and another who challenges the devil to a competitive eating match. Some of these stories have been published in anthologies such as *21 Proms, The Faery Reel,* and *The Restless Dead*, and many have been reprinted in many “Best of ” anthologies. *The Poison Eaters* is Holly Black’s much-anticipated first collection, and her ability to stare into the void—and to find humanity and humor there—will speak to young adult and adult readers alike. A Junior Library Guild Pick. Illustrated by Theo Black. Holly Black is the author of *Tithe: A Modern Faerie Tale* (an ALA Best Book for Young Adults) and two related novels, *Valiant* (Norton Award winner) and *New York Times* bestseller *Ironside*. Her latest novel, *Black Heart* is the third of a new series, The Curseworkers. She and Tony DiTerlizzi created the best-selling Spiderwick Chronicles. Holly lives in Massachusetts with her husband, Theo, in a house with a secret library.
