The Shipbuilder of Bellfairie

Meet Quark, a giant of a man carrying scars literally and figuratively, on his
return to Bellfairie, as he searches for his father and clues to his mother’s
mysterious death. But no one goes to Bellfairie on purpose, it’s always a
wrong turn in someone’s life. As Quark will soon learn. Like Frankenstein’s monster, The Shipbuilder of Bellfairie is a vibrant,
emotional and humane amalgam. A fantastical crime mystery with a soupçon
of magic that brings to mind not only Shelley’s creation but A Confederacy of
Dunces in its exploration of flawed and tragic characters.

“Masterful … darkly magical … a stunning ending.”
— Gary K. Wolfe, Locus

“The Shipbuilder of Bellfairie grabbed me from the first page. Quark is an indelible main character who I will continue to think about and love.”
— Dan Chaon, author of Ill Will
