A pair of chosen knights race across the desert to slay a devouring spirit, a werewolf is granted the victim he deserves, a small-town cop has a male lover and premonitions, and a discarded prince discovers his murdered mage-king left him a legacy, after all. Nothing turns out pretty, everything is up for grabs, and there are no guarantees or happily ever afters. These are not your grandmother’s fairytales.
13 dark, cross-genre tales with a queer slant.
