OUT NOW: Skyward Inn by Aliya Whiteley (Paperback)

We’re thrilled to announce that Skyward Inn by Aliya Whiteley is out now in paperback!

Jamaica Inn by way of Jeff Vandermeer, Ursula Le Guin, Angela Carter and Michel
Faber, Skyward Inn is a beautiful, literary tale of belonging, identity and regret.

Drink down the brew and dream of a better Earth.

Skyward Inn, within the high walls of the Western Protectorate, is a place of safety, where people come together to tell stories of the time before the war with Qita.

But safety from what? Qita surrendered without complaint when Earth invaded; Innkeepers Jem and Isley, veterans from either side, have regrets but few scars.

Their peace is disturbed when a visitor known to Isley comes to the Inn asking for help, bringing reminders of an unnerving past and triggering an uncertain future.

Did humanity really win the war?

Whiteley explores questions of identification, attachment and belonging, tying everything together in a wonderfully surreal and weirdly uplifting denouement.”The FT
