Myths for the modern age.
*Maria Dahvana Headley*

"There is magic in this book. You just have to crack it open."
*Spectrum Culture*

"Kat Howard's short stories are by turns revelatory, transformative, and magical -- and often all three at once. Howard writes a modern mythos where her heroines and heroes (no matter how familiar the setting seems, Howard's characters are never mere protagonists) confront curses, magic, love, madness, and the supernatural. They emerge stronger, as does the reader. I dare you to read these stories and not look at your life differently afterward.

With A Cathedral of Myth and Bone, Kat Howard cinches her place as a new generation's vividly different answer to Zelazny; as an Ovid of sidewalk and cafe metamorphoses; and as a vibrant voice very much of her own time and place."
*Fran Wilde, award-winning, Hugo and Nebula-nominated author of The Bone Universe series and The Jewel and Her Lapidary*

“Sidewalk saints and scholarly sorceresses populate Kat Howard's collection of new stories for old ceremonies. The ferocious bonds of girls and women are the focus of these myths for the modern age, drawn from two thousand years of lore, ritual, and witness. In them, Howard has created enchanted narratives of hard-won survival.”
*Maria Dahvana Headley, author of The Mere Wife*

"Strong and satisfying." 
*Publishers Weekly*

“[A] Brothers Grimm tale for the contemporary reader” 
*Starred Review, School Library Journal*
