Erzebet BartholdI am an author, a publisher, and a book artist & binder. I believe that stories save lives, and that books are small gods. I also believe in magic.

My written work has been published by Prime Books, Lethe Press, Masque Books, Tor Books, Clarkesworld, Fantasy Magazine and more. Most of these works were written under my previous name, Erzebet YellowBoy. Here is my full bibliography.

A selection of my book art and mixed media can be found here, but most of my work as a bookbinder and book artist can be seen in the catalogues of Papaveria Press, a micropress devoted to fairy tales and fantasy, and Hadean Press, an esoteric press exploring the union of myth and magic. I am also the co-founder and editor of Cabinet des Fées, an online journal of fairy tales.

Some of the short stories on this site were previously published, most of them were not. I add to them as the whim strikes. Updates from the studio make up the bulk of the site, and include new publications, artwork, field trips, and musings on the creative life.
