For a while now we've been trying to come up with a title for the two plays for voices that I wrote for the website, Snow Glass Apples and Murder Mysteries, when they come out late summer as a collected CD and Cassette edition. I'd send off ever-more frantic and unlikely suggestions to Harper having to do with murders and reflections and apples and mysteries... all terrible titles. Finally my editor, Jennifer Hershey, made one of those Gordean Knot suggestions for which she is so justly famed.

Today Harper sent me the proposed cover, which is beautiful (glow, glow), and had typeset on it the proposed title, which is:


Which seems astonishingly sensible, and looks, when written down on a very attractive cover, like a nice, solid proper, respectable sort of title. And it won't confuse people into buying a book of mine from an online bookseller ("Neil Gaiman wrote a book called SNOW ANGELS?") that they didn't mean to get. Now I just have to find the time to write the liner notes for it...

It'll be released on the First of August. I'll try and get a cover image up here as soon as I have one.
