Becky Cloonan’s BY CHANCE OR PROVIDENCE – Now Available For Pre-Order!


We here at The Beguiling have long been fans of Becky Cloonan, and we’ve been particularly excited by her self-published projects of the last few years! The Mire, Wolves, and Demeter all debuted at TCAF, and we’ve been honoured to carry all three here in the store. Now, these three books are being collected with additional material in an all new, gorgeous, and very limited edition hardcover.

Becky Cloonan’s By Chance or Providence will include  The Mire, Wolves, and Demeter, feature a canvas hardcover with gold foil blocking on the spine and cover, a bonus sketchbook and illustration section, and a gorgeous dust jacket. We are offering it for pre-order now through March 31st at the price of $20.00, no deposit is required. The in-store price will be $22.

If you would like to pre-order a copy of this book, e-mail your name and phone number to You’ll be contacted to confirm your pre-order, and then again when the book is available. We are expecting copies in Mid-April. (You can also add it to your existing pullfile, if you have one.)

Our congratulations to Becky on this fantastic new edition!
