Earth Begotten is a companion book to Jacqueline Carey's Kushiel's Legacy fantasy series. It is essentially a prelude to the tales of Terre d'Ange and explores the mythology and origins of Blessed Elua and his seven angelic companions. Whilst the story is very short, fewer than 1500 words, it builds on references to Elua and His Companions throughout the series and elaborates on Elua's conception and ascension to the 'true Terre d'Ange that lies beyond'.
Earth Begotten was published in April, 2003 by Havilah Press, CA. A strictly limited run of 50 copies was produced to ensure that the bound version remained a collector's item. The book is printed in silver ink on black paper in Centaur type. The pages were printed by hand using a Columbian hand press. The outer boards are veneered in wood that has been treated with silver pigment and lined with scarlet endpapers.
Although the 50 copies have sold out, Jacqueline Carey has made the full text available free of charge on her official website: Jacqueline Carey Official Author Site - Earth Begotten.
