English | 2023 | Sci-Fi & Fantasy | 906 KB
The stories in Magic and Myth reveal the connection between everyday occurrences and the otherworldly. The place where we pause to reassure ourselves that the world is full of the mundane and unmagical in every way–even as we check beneath the bed for monsters.
Explore the point where myths and humanity collide and build a home, where unexpected magic crackles in the firelight, and the seasons gather around the dinner table. Crisscrossing these pages are creatures from dreams and legends–love and horror are intertwined, revenge is sweeter than any summer evening, and desire can be enough to reshape reality.
