Fell Beasts Are Here!

The Fell Beasts and Fair anthology is now available in both paperback and electronically in a variety of formats:


I must say, I was very impressed with all of the contributions, and every one of them is different. With some anthologies, you get the impression that one or two of the stories got included just to make up the page count. That is definitely not the case here! As far as I’m concerned, there isn’t a story in the collection that isn’t worth the read. Here are a few of my favorites to whet your appetite:

  • Cloudy with a Chance of Dropbears by W. R. Gingell asks us to ponder what happens when a leprechaun accountant uncovers shady business in the land of Faerie.
  • Boirdeleau, WI (Population 3,017) by Aimee Ogden features the oldest member of a small midwestern community, a local celebrity who also happens to be a millennia-old mummy.
  • Necessary Threads by Lora Gray is a Bigfoot story with heaping side orders of suffering and compassion.
  • Road Trip by Aaron DaMommio tells the story of a zombie apocalypse. The heroes’ secret weapon: they have their very own werewolf!
  • The Unanswered Riddle by Tom Jolly is about a sphinx that’s on the fritz.
  • Like Sand in Your Teeth by April Steenburgh is a love story about selkies and sacrifice.
  • When Gracie’s Father Fought by Anthony Eichenlaub features a faery child and explores what it really means to be a dad.

If you enjoy fantasy fiction, I’m confident you’ll find something to your taste in this anthology!
