IFWG is very pleased to announce the acquisition of a dark fantasy short fiction anthology titled Cursed Shards: Tales Inspired by Dark Folklore, edited by Leanbh Pearson.
“This is an announcement quite long in the coming,” said Gerry Huntman, Managing Director of IFWG, “but well worth the wait. For some time we wanted to add more fantasy genre material to our mix of speculative fiction, and Pearson’s themed curation of wonderful stories delivers. We particularly like that the majority of the contents are good sized tales, bordering on long fiction.”
The Table of Contents is:
THE CURSED HUNT – Leanbh Pearson (Australia)
TATTERMOG – Louise Pieper (Australia)
THE WITHERED – Mendel Mire (Australia)
THE PHANTOM QUEEN – K. B. Elijah (Australia)
LADY MARIAN’S GAMBIT – Clare Rhoden (Australia)
THE STRENGTH OF BONES – McKenzie Richardson (USA)
ONCE UPON AN AUTOMATON – Nikky Lee (New Zealand)
DESTINY – Kimberly Rei (USA)
THE WRAITH OF MURKDRES – Stephen Herczeg (Australia)
CHILDREN OF THE WOODS – Amber M. Simpson (USA)
THE LADY OF STRANGENESSE – Leife Shallcross (Australia)
Cursed Shards: Tales Inspired by Dark Folklore will be released world-wide in the first quarter of 2024.
