A new unicorn story from Peter S Beagle

Amazingly enough, I only stumbled across this by chance.

At Bibliotropic, in the “Looking forward to in 2017” post, I saw this:

And this:

From the acclaimed author of The Last Unicorn comes a new, exquisitely-told unicorn fable for the modern age.

Claudio Bianchi has lived alone for many years on a hillside in Southern Italy’s scenic Calabria. Set in his ways and suspicious of outsiders, Claudio has always resisted change, preferring farming and writing poetry. But one chilly morning, as though from a dream, an impossible visitor appears at the farm. When Claudio comes to her aid, an act of kindness throws his world into chaos. Suddenly he must stave off inquisitive onlookers, invasive media, and even more sinister influences.

Lyrical, gripping, and wise, In Calabria confirms Peter S. Beagle’s continuing legacy as one of fantasy’s most legendary authors.

I will add: I don’t think the publisher quite thought things through when designing this cover. You know what I would think if I saw this book face-out on a shelf; or saw an icon for it online? I would think, “Oh, The Last Unicorn has been reissued.” I would most likely not look closely enough to see the title. After all, “Peter S Beagle” is in much bigger lettering.

Anyway, here it is, a new unicorn story. I will try not to expect In Calabria to be as iconic as The Last Unicorn, but I’ve certainly adding it to my MUST TRY list for 2017.
