Under the Pendulum Sun

“An evocative, claustrophobic Gothic novel with strikingly creepy set-pieces, which repeatedly dislocates its reader’s and characters’ worldview in a forceful examination of faith and the power of stories.”
Aliette de Bodard, Nebula, Locus and BSFA Award-winning author of The House of Shattered Wings


Two Victorian missionaries head into darkest fairyland, to deliver their message to the godless magical beings who dwell there… at the risk of losing their own souls.

“Jeannette Ng’s imagery is breathtaking, her setting dark and delightful, and her use of theology is pure genius. Like some sinister elf, Under the Pendulum Sun will steal your imagination and never give it back.”
