THE TEN THOUSAND DOORS OF JANUARY author Alix E. Harrow

Writing a Portal Fantasy with Alix E. Harrow, author of THE TEN THOUSAND DOORS OF JANUARY

Alix E. Harrow has been a student and a teacher, a farm-worker and a cashier, an ice-cream-scooper and a 9-to-5 office-dweller. She lived in tents and cars, cramped city apartments and lonely cabins, and spent a summer in a really sweet ’79 VW Vanagon Westfalia. She has library cards in at least five states.

​Now she’s a full-time writer living with her husband and two semi-feral kids in Kentucky.

In 2019, Alix won the Hugo Award for Best Short Story for A Witch’s Guide to Escape: A Practical Compendium of Portal Fantasies. Her debut novel, The Ten Thousand Doors of January, arrives September 10th from Red Hook / Orbit Books.

About The Ten Thousand Doors of January

In the early 1900s, a young woman embarks on a fantastical journey of self-discovery after finding a mysterious book in this captivating and lyrical debut.

In a sprawling mansion filled with peculiar treasures, January Scaller is a curiosity herself. As the ward of the wealthy Mr. Locke, she feels little different from the artifacts that decorate the halls: carefully maintained, largely ignored, and utterly out of place.

Then she finds a strange book. A book that carries the scent of other worlds, and tells a tale of secret doors, of love, adventure and danger. Each page turn reveals impossible truths about the world and January discovers a story increasingly entwined with her own.

Lush and richly imagined, a tale of impossible journeys, unforgettable love, and the enduring power of stories awaits in Alix E. Harrow’s spellbinding debut–step inside and discover its magic.
