New Book: Fae edited by Rhonda Parrish

Fae edited by Rhonda Parrish is officially released today. I just received a review copy late yesterday and haven't had a chance to read any of it. But we have a guest post scheduled for the book in a few weeks, so stay tuned.

Book description:

Meet Robin Goodfellow as you've never seen him before, watch damsels in distress rescue themselves, get swept away with the selkies and enjoy tales of hobs, green men, pixies and phookas. One thing is for certain, these are not your grandmother’s fairy tales.

Fairies have been both mischievous and malignant creatures throughout history. They’ve dwelt in forests, collected teeth or crafted shoes. Fae is full of stories that honor that rich history while exploring new and interesting takes on the fair folk from castles to computer technologies to modern midwifing, the Old World to Indianapolis.

Fae bridges traditional and modern styles, from the familiar feeling of a good old-fashioned fairy tale to urban fantasy and horror with a fae twist. This anthology covers a vast swath of the fairy story spectrum, making the old new and exploring lush settings with beautiful prose and complex characters.

  1. Another book about Faeries. I love how it is titled. It evokes a dark and gloomy feel to it. I just have to read this.
