THE HOUSE OF ZABKA

My first book of fiction now available from Deathless Press. 
It’s a Polish postmodern fairy tale.
“The House of Zabka” by Marcus Slease
A Polish folk tale meets Kurt Vonnegut’s surreal science fiction. A visionary, oracular original fairy tale that follows a butcher’s daughter to the deepest, darkest, strangest depths of the forest. A playful walk with a sausage-dog companion past sex shops and donuts, including a plastic dragon that will breathe fire if you text message it. 
Each chapbook is roughly 4.25″ x 5.5″, handmade in a limited edition of 60. Stapled with handmade endpapers. Endpapers for “The House of Zabka” are marbled metallic multicolored Nepalese Lokta papers.
$6 plus $2 for shipping in U.S.
or
£3.96 plus £1.98 for shipping in U.K. etc.
