The Labyrinth of the Faun

We have a big announcement from Cornelia and filmmaker Guillermo del Toro: the novelization of Pan’s Labyrinth that they’ve collaborated on, will be published in the US and UK on July 2nd, 2019! Cornelia worked with del Toro on The Labyrinth of the Faun for several years, exchanging drafts and notes. Alongside the novelization of his story, Cornelia also wrote nearly a dozen short stories, offshoots of the original tale often about characters on the periphery, which expand upon motifs from the original.

In the snow-covered city of Londra, young Tabetha survives by finding treasures in the mudbanks of the river Themse. On Christmas Eve, a sinister stranger asks her to keep her eyes open for a priceless, long-lost magical object: the Glass of Lead and Gold.

Throwback! The Original Wild Chicks
