About Cat Eldridge


I’m the publisher of this website which is all about Peter Beagle. Email me here if you’ve got any questions.

I’ve met him but once over dinner — he’s quite witty and charming in person.

At Green Man Review, my other site, he’s the only writer that we like so much that two editions were done on him and his works.

My favorite works by him are Tamsin, Giant Bones, Summerlong which I first read in draft a long time ago and In Calabria.
