A Chimerical World: Tales of the Seelie Court, a fantasy anthology featuring work by myself and many talented authors, is available TODAY!! This fantasy short story anthology, produced by Seventh Star Press, features 19 works of fantasy focusing on the faeries of old. Tales of the Seelie Court is the first of two books. The second will feature of the darker side of the faerie court – A Chimerical World: Tales of the UnSeelie Court. While I do not have work in the second book, I’ve caught a sneak peak of what’s inside and it looks every bit as fascinating as the Seelie Court collection. Without further ado….
The Fey have been with us since the beginning, sometimes to our great joy but often to our detriment. Usually divided (at least by us silly humans) into two courts, the first volume of A Chimerical World focuses on the Seelie Court: the court we humans seem to view as the “good” faeries. But “good” and “evil” are human concepts and as alien to the Fey as their mindsets are to us.
Inside you will find 19 stories that delve into the world of the faeries of the Seelie Court, from authors both established and new, including George S. Walker, Eric Garrison, and Alexandra Christian. But be warned: these faeries are nothing like Tinker Bell.
