Due to the vagaries of the publishing world, you can procure Kate’s novels Blasted, Antilia: Sword and Song, Antilia: Seer and Sacrifice, and This Insubstantial Pageant by contacting Kate directly (or just troll the interwebs for second-hand copies). Or check out your local library! If they don’t have it, ask for it! You can find Wrecked Upon This Shore at Breakwater Books:
