Wonderland Revisited and the Games Alice Played There by Keith Sheppard now available from Evertype. The book has been illustrated by Cynthia Brownell.

From the back cover:

“Excuse me,” said Alice to a small white Mouse in red shorts. “What precisely is a custard race?”

Did Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass leave you yearning for more? Join Alice on her new journey and meet the extraordinary inhabitants of Wonderland, both familiar and new.

If your bed turned into a boat and you found yourself “drifting off” in an entirely unexpected manner how would you find your way home? The Jack of Diamonds says it’s Alice’s own fault for being fast asleep—had she slept more slowly she wouldn’t be so far from home.

The Red Queen, the Mah-jong Dragons, even the Red King’s Gamekeeper, all seem helpful enough at first—but things never quite turn out the way Alice hopes!

Brimming with wordplay, nonsense verse, and a cast of eccentric characters each with their own peculiar logic, this adventure is faithful to the style of the originals, picking up the pen where Lewis Carroll put it down. Be swept away on a torrent of humour and madness. Alice is back!

Tá an leabhar Sciorrfhocail: Scéalta agus úrscéal le Panu Petteri Höglund le fáil ó Evertype anois. Otso Höglund, deartháir an údair, a mhaisigh an leabhar.

From the back cover:

Trí ghearrscéal agus úrscéal amháin le scríbhneoir Fionlannach a d’fhoghlaim a chuid Gaeilge ó scéalaithe agus ó scríbhneoirí móra na Gaeltachta sular tháinig sé go hÉirinn den chéad uair. Seo iad na scéalta Gaeilge a chum sé ina fhear óg dó, agus iad ar fáil faoi chlúdach leabhair anois. Scéalta iad faoi dhaoine uaigneacha a chaitheann slabhraí an uaignis díobh agus iad ag tóraíocht an ghrá.

“Ainmhian na Máistreása Óige”: Cailín cráifeach í Pia nár thuig bealaí an ghrá riamh. Ach anois, chuaigh an grá féin i luíochán roimpi.

“Craiceann”: Tháinig mac léinn óg ar cuairt chuig a thuismitheoirí le súil a chaitheamh ar na seanbhólaí. Céard a chasfar air cois an locha i gcroí na coille, meas tú? Céard eile ach an grá féin!

“Béarlóir Deireanach an Domhain”: Chuaigh an Ghaeilge ar fud an domhain. Níl ach Gaeilge Uladh ag na Meiriceánaigh, agus fágadh an Béarla in áit na leathphingine i Sasana féin. Cén cineál saoil atá ag an mBéarlóir deireanach ar an saol seo?

Tachtaimis an Grá Sin: Fear óg cúthail é Somhairle nach bhfuil de chairde aige ach ógánach uaigneach eile agus nach bhfuil de chaitheamh aimsire aige ach a bheith ag amharc ar na físghránnáin. Ach lá amháin, castar cailín air nach bhfacthas a leithéid riamh roimhe sin i Narkkaus, baile beag in Oirthear na Fionlainne.

Evertype is pleased to announce the publication of a Cornish version, translated by Nicholas Williams, of a book by Craig Weatherhill, Jowal Lethesow: Whedhel a’n West a GernowThe Lyonesse Stone.

From the back cover:

Termyn pòr hir alebma pow Lethesow inter Pedn an Wlas ha Syllan a wrug sedhy rag nefra in dadn an todnow. Ny dhienkys marnas Arlùth Trevelyan. Lies bledhen awosa yma whedhel coth an pow kellys ow tewheles dhe dropla Peny ha Jowan, whor ha broder, neb yw skydnys dhyworth Arlùth Trevelyan y honen. Destnys yns dhe gollenwel profecy coth, hag y degys aberth in gwlascor gudh a’n West a Gernow. Ena y a vÿdh maglednys i’n whilas auncyent rag power hag anvarwoleth. “Wàr an tu aral a’n park, dhyrag an magoryow overdevys, a sevy seyth marhak; linen gasadow a skeusow cosel.

Saw kynth usy an whedhlow coth ow tasvewa, yma Peny ha Jowan Trevelyan a’ga sav intredho ev ha… Jowal Lethesow.

Long ago, the land of Lyonesse between Land’s End and the Isles of Scilly sank forever beneath the waves. Only the Lord Trevelyan escaped to tell the tale. Countless years later the legend of the Lost Land returns to haunt his descendants, who find themselves transported to the hidden realms of West Cornwall. Bound to fulfil an ancient prophecy, Penny and John Trevelyan are caught up in a centuries-old quest for power and immortality: “On the far side of the field, in front of the old, overgrown ruin, stood seven horsemen: a sinister line of motionless shadows. Dark were the horses on which they sat, dark their flowing robes and deep the cowls which hid their faces.” With the help of these evil forces, the Lord Pengersek believes he will win. But while ancient legends spring to life, it is Penny and John Trevelyan who stand between him and… The Lyonesse Stone.
