IFWG is very pleased to announce the acquisition of a collection of short fiction by Leanbh Pearson titled Three Curses and Other Dark Tales. “We have had a long standing admiration of Pearson’s work, both as a writer and an active member of the speculative fiction scene in Australia,” said Gerry Huntman, Managing Director of IFWG, “and it was a delight to have received her manuscript, and discover a fine collection knitted so well together with common themes. We know readers of dark fiction will be delighted with this.”
This title will be released world-wide in the second quarter of 2024.
Three Curses and Other Dark Tales is a world tour of dark folklore with uncanny beings reimagined into new tales, where wits, heroism and truth meet trickery, bargains and curses.
