This collection of stories by award-winning author Bruce Holland Rogers is a ticket to Places You've Never Been, from the heart of the Tulgey Wood to the forests of the Highland People. While some of the stories are set in the real world, from Vietnamese jungles to the Seattle stomping grounds of an anarchist monkey-wrench gang, even mundane reality turns out to lie on the border of Elsewhere. By turns funny and poignant, Rogers treats readers to fantasy stories they won't soon forget.

Why Fairy Tales Stick

In his latest book, fairy tales expert Jack Zipes explores the question of why some fairy tales "work" and others don't, why the fairy tale is uniquely capable of getting under the skin of culture and staying there. Why, in other words, fairy tales "stick." Long an advocate of the fairy tale as a serious genre with wide social and cultural ramifications, Jack Zipes here makes his strongest case for the idea of the fairy tale not just as a collection of stories for children but a profoundly important genre. Why Fairy Tales Stick contains two chapters on the history and theory of the genre, followed by case studies of famous tales (including Cinderella, Snow White, and Bluebeard), followed by a summary chapter on the problematic nature of traditional storytelling in the twenty-first century.

Scurry down the rabbit hole and step through the looking glass with this luxurious compilation of works from Lewis Carroll. Don’t be late--it’s a very important date! Witty, whimsical, and often nonsensical, the fiction of Lewis Carroll has been popular with both children and adults for over 150 years. Canterbury Classics's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland takes readers on a trip down the rabbit hole in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, where height is dynamic, animals talk, and the best solutions to drying off are a dry lecture on William the Conqueror and a Caucus Race in which everyone runs in circles and there is no clear winner. Through the Looking Glass begins the adventure anew when Alice steps through a mirror into another magical world where she can instantly be made queen if she can only get to the other side of the colossal chessboard. Complete with the original drawings by John Tenniel, this luxurious leather-bound edition is a steal for new readers and Carroll fans alike.

Aus dem Samen, den Merlin einst in die Erde des untergehenden Fincayras setzte, wuchs ein mächtiger Baum und mit ihm eine neue Welt: das magische Avalon. In seinen sieben ausgedehnten Wurzelreichen leben die verschiedensten Geschöpfe in Frieden und Harmonie. Gäbe es da nicht die düstere Prophezeiung der Herrin vom See, nach der in einem sternenlosen Jahr ein Kind geboren werde, von dem 17 Jahre später große Gefahr für das ganze Reich ausgehe. Als sich die Anzeichen mehren, dass sich die Vorhersage erfüllen wird, machen sich drei ungewöhnliche Jugendliche auf die Suche nach dem Ursprung des Unglücks: die freiheitsliebende Elli, eine ehemalige Sklavin und nun angehende Priesterin, Tamwyn, ein heimatloser Waldläufer und Sohn eines Feuerwesens, sowie sein Ziehbruder Scree, der ein sonderbares Geheimnis mit sich zu tragen scheint. Avalons Zukunft liegt in ihren Händen – denn sie ahnen, dass einer von ihnen »das Kind der dunklen Prophezeiung« ist, ein anderer »der wahre Erbe Merlins« und damit Avalons einziger Hoffnungsträger ...

A.M. Klein's reputation as a writer on his poetry and to a lesser extent on his remarkable poetic novel The Second Scroll. But he also wrote many short stories over a period of more than a quarter of a century. Until now few people have been aware of their existence; many exist only in manuscript form, and most of those that were published appeared in magazines that were not readily accessible to the general reading public. This volume bring them together. Klein's range of themes and styles in his short fiction, as in his poetry and in his journalistic writing, is broad. He draws on his Jewish experience, focusing on legends, festivals, and ceremonies, well-known character types, and familiar aspects of Jewish life - in the synagogue, in the home, and on the streets. Klein was not limited, however, by his Jewish concerns, for he also wrote social and political satire and parodies of the detective story and of literary debates. His pervasive sense of humour is often closely associated with his feeling for the macabre, producing a quality of black comedy that is distinctly Kleinian. The stories in this volume are an invaluable addition to the canon of Klein's works and their publication will extend and reinforce his already considerable reputation.
