The Fold and the Creator takes a stark look at the goings-on of an isolated village and the customs of its inhabitants, including the annual sacrifices of their daughters in the name of a pitiless deity. Using these tropes of fantasy fiction, the ideas of women’s roles in our own society, as well as those of the ‘female victim’ in our media, are brought under examination.
2-color cover, 30 pages, 5.5 x 8.5 in.
