An odd team patrols a countyfull of mythological beasts only slightly more problematic than the locals. A familiar youngster from the world of The Last Unicorn is gifted in magic but terrible at spell-casting. Aseemingly incorruptible judge meets his match in a mysterious thief who steals his heart. Lyrical, witty, and heartbreaking, The Overneath is Peter S. Beagle’s much-anticipated return to the short form.In these uniquely beautiful and wholly originaltales, Beagle once again proves himself a master of the imagination.

In Starlings, a strange Eritrean coin travels from lovers to thieves, gathering stories before meeting its match. Google becomes sentient and proceeds toward an existential crisis. An idealistic dancer on a generation ship makes an impassioned plea for creativity and survival. Three Irish siblings embark on an unlikely quest, stealing enchanted items via bad poetry, trickery, and an assist from the Queen of Cats. Through eclectic stories, subtle vignettes, inspired poetry, and more, Jo Walton soars with humans, machines, and magic—rising from the everyday into the universe itself.

Where is Wendy? Leading a labor strike against the Lost Boys, of course. A Scottish academic unearths ancient evil in a fishing village. Edgar Allan Poe’s young bride is beguiled by a most unusual bird. Dorothy, lifted from Kansas, returns as a gymnastic sophisticate. Emily Dickinson dwells in possibility and sails away in a starship made of light. Alice’s wicked nemesis has jaws and claws but really needs a sense of humor. In The Emerald Circus, Jane Yolen’s first full collection in more than ten years, discover new and uncollected tales of beloved characters, literary legends, and much more.
