Yesterday, I learned another awesome thing I’m in has become available for purchase. I’m so talking about the “Tales of the Fox & Fae” (follow the link) edited by Adele Wearing and published by Fox Spirit Books. The paperback can be ordered through Amazon with an e-book soon to follow.
My story “The Woman and the Jar of Words” was tremendous fun to write as I went for a post-apocalyptic Japan with traditional akuma existing as horrifying experiments. Spiders, foxes and a badass swordswoman. Awesome, eh? Here’s more about the anthology.
“Deep in the woods where wild things lurk you’ll find foxes and rarer creatures, the fae. Join us for tales of faeries at the bottom of the garden, foxes falling foul of their own nature, battles fought in the night where human lives hang in the balance. Not all faeries are good, not all foxes are hunted. Welcome to our Tales of the Fox & Fae.”
