I’m Derby Cavendish—that’s pronounced Derby with an “ar” sound, not an “er”: remember that for later. Ever since I was a boy, the forces of the otherworldly have been drawn to me like divas to a spotlight. But I’m ready for them. Bring it on, bitches.
He’s the reason there are no zombies at Christmas, no fairy magic (the bad kind) at Gay Pride, and no werewolves (except one and he’s a dear friend) at Hanukkah. He’s Derby Cavendish, and for several years, celebrated author Don Bassingthwaite has been bringing him to life each holiday season.
Now for the first time, these flamboyantly funny, supernaturally saucy stories have been brought together in one fabulous, long-awaited collection. (Fruitcake faddler sold separately.) If you like your chills with giggles and glitter, Cocktails at Seven, Apocalypse at Eight is for you!
Don Bassingthwaite is the author of numerous fantasy and dark fantasy novels, including The Dragon Below and Legacy of Dhakaan trilogies. His short stories have appeared in Black Gate magazine, Imaginarium: The Best Canadian Speculative Fiction Writing, and the Lambda Literary Award-winning Bending the Landscape: Fantasy and Science Fiction anthologies. He lives in Toronto with too many books, a well-stocked spice cupboard, and his partner.
