“A stunning collection of 12 interlinked dark fantasy, short stories set in the mythical, magical land of Anywhere. Written in a dark, humorous and very entertaining style , the stories are full not only of magic, trolls and fairies but also of biting satire on our modern times. Please note, whilst the tales in the book are cleverly constructed to read like fairy tales, they are definitely for adults, covering such themes as abuse, murder, greed, wicked parents, love, hope, political and financial corruption, bigotry, bullying, fate, God and the Devil. Intriguing, insightful, wise and at times breathtakingly beautiful.”
Did you know that a Fairy lives for exactly 897 years and 13 days, that they kidnap human children because they can’t have their own and when they cry, their tears turn into diamonds? Did you know that real Trolls have horns, can run as fast as cheetahs and have a deep and abiding hatred of Bankers? Did you know that as you read this the Blind Old Weaver Of Fate is Clumsily Spinning Together the course of your life? Did you know that you began your existence as a random handful of atoms, coalescing together after journeying across the vastness of the Universe and when God saw you he was so moved by your beauty that he tore a piece off himself and placed it inside you?
Did you know that wherever you walk, the Devil and his Special Children walk with you and that one day your Soul will Break The Chains Of Earthly Existence to make one last, Incandescent Journey across a Broad, Bright Blue Sky and the Tale That Was Your Life will slowly fade away, to be lost forever in the dense Fog Of Forgotten Stories?
Did you know that if you speak the words “Once upon a time,” anything can happen?
