Table of Contents for The Grateful Dead Tales From Around the World

Once again, The Grateful Dead Tales From Around the World--the 10th SurLaLune Fairy Tale Series release!-- will be officially released on 5/4/15. Any links I include may not be working yet, but they will be by then.

Today I am sharing the Table of Contents for the book. The book is 828 pages and stuffed full with Grateful Dead tales, discussions, and other miscellanea. Tomorrow I will start discussing the tale, starting with just what it is! I didn't know much when I started this project but now I know enough to be dangerously boring at a dinner party. But I will try to be interesting and brief instead. And, really, I don't think I've ever been boring at a dinner party. Just offer up the history of Sleeping Beauty variants--if you are in the right company--and you'll have people disturbed and talking for a good portion of the evening. Grateful Dead isn't as disturbing, but it is fascinating.
