Two Hearts, Follow-up to The Last Unicorn

“We are not always what we seem, and hardly ever what we dream.”
– Schmendrick

Peter S. Beagle wrote a follow-up story to his 1968 fantasy novel The Last Unicorn called Two Hearts. It is set half a century after the original story, and some characters reappear, though this isn’t a strict sequel.

You can get a signed copy of Two Hearts if you’re among the first 3000 who order the newly released unabridged audio version of The Last Unicorn read by Peter Beagle, with music by Jeff Slingluff. This is available as CD which will ship to you, or even easier, can be directly downloaded as 412 MB MP3 for $30 (the book is split into 14 files, one file per chapter, making for over 7 hours). The free edition of Two Hearts coming with any audio version is a special limited hardcover, preceding the story’s appearance in the “Fantasy and Science Fiction” magazine this coming fall.

I ordered the audio version (a good podcast, I suppose), as I’m a fan of the animated movie of 1982, the book, and even the America soundtrack by Jimmy Webb – and the follow-up should be really interesting.
