The Lost Steersman, by Rosemary Kirstein, with small handmade blank journal

Item Name & Description: The Lost Steersman, Volume 3 of the Steerswoman Series, with accompanying handmade journal.

While I was writing The Lost Steersman I was also experimenting with paper-making and I recycled printed drafts of the book into handmade paper. I intentionally left fragments of text visible in the finished pages, as random decorative inclusions.

There are twenty pages to this little (4.5″ by 6″) book. The paper is rough, and works well with colored pencil, fountain pen, felt-tip pen (NOT ballpoint). I include two loose pages for you to experiment with.

Cover is marble paper, end-papers are bark paper. Silk ribbon tie closure, with gold-edged little snail shell.

Starting Bid: $15

Notes: I will ship anywhere in the world (however for destinations in the Southern Hemisphere I’ll use the least expensive shipping method, and it might take months for the item to reach you). Signing available on request.

Bidding is now open. It closes Sunday, May 3, 2015 at 4:00 p.m. (time zone conversions, countdown) unless bids are received in the last ten minutes (learn more).

The Steerswoman by Rosemary Kirstein, mass market paperback, including map on handmade paper

Item Name & Description: The Steerswoman, mass market paperback, including a map, printed on paper that I made by hand.

If you ask, she must answer. A steerswoman’s knowledge is shared with any who request it; no steerswoman may refuse a question, and no steerswoman may answer with anything but the truth. And if she asks, you must answer. It is the other side of tradition’s contract — and if you refuse the question, or lie, no steerswoman will ever again answer even your most casual question. And so, the steerswomen — always seeking, always investigating — have gathered more and more knowledge about the world they traveled, and they share that knowledge freely. Until the day that the steerswoman Rowan begins asking innocent questions about one small, lovely, inexplicable object… Her discoveries grow stranger and deeper, and more dangerous, until suddenly she finds she must flee or fight for her life. Or worse — lie. Because one kind of knowledge has always been denied the the steerswomen: Magic.

“Kirstein’s striking portrait of an innovative woman who is scientist, judge, historian, and adventurer makes for a good, thought-provoking read.” — Publisher’s Weekly

“If you haven’t read Kirstein’s Steerswoman books I envy you the chance to read them now for the first time…. I think they have a very good claim to be my favorite thing still being written.” — Jo Walton, Hugo and Nebula Awards winner, author of Among Others and Farthing.

Starting Bid: $10

Notes: I’ll ship anywhere in North America, Europe and Asia. Signing available on request.

Bidding is now open. It closes Sunday, May 3, 2015 at 4:00 p.m. (time zone conversions, countdown) unless bids are received in the last ten minutes (learn more).
