Summary Excerpt Comments

STEP INTO THE WORLD OF MYTH AND MAGIC…

Fair maidens, handsome princes, witches, and fairy godmothers all show their dark and dangerous side in this anthology inspired by myths and fairy tales, retold by some of the best authors in this generation and by some upcoming new talents. Each beautifully crafted story brings an unusual twist to the traditional tale, from Cinderella’s story told from the not-so-kind fairy godmother’s point of view, to the Bluebeard tale showing the lure of this dark and dangerous man that drives young girls to rush willingly to their fate.

Beautifully presented with cover art by Howard David Johnson, this collection brings together a unique set of authors that will take the readers on a wild ride through magical realms of Ancient Greece, old Russia, medieval Europe, and modern day America.
