Genre:Fantasy, Fairy Tales
Synopsis:While most writers of fairy tales cater to children, some offer up darker and slightly more twisted fare, such as this curious concoction intended for adults. Chock full of deliciously dark and often grimly humorous tales and poems, this singular literary feast is sure to satisfy the cravings of any reader with an appetite for the unusual. Containing three original works of short fiction, four original works of flash fiction, and six original works of poetry, the collection gets off to a playfully mischievous start with a spicy combo of gruesome terror and wry humor in "Troll Stew", a rather macabre nursery rhyme which lends its title to this delightfully strange and eclectic brew.
AUTHOR’S NOTE: In light of the cut to SNAP benefits (Food Stamps) beginning Nov 1, 2013, which will affect low-income families across the U.S. (including an estimated 22 million children), I have decided that a tithe (10%) of all royalties I receive from the sale of this book will henceforth be donated to the local food pantry, without which there were many times I would have gone hungry.

Christopher Courtley lives in the vast, ancient, crumbling haunted house of his own imagination, perched precariously upon the windswept edges of the cliffs of insanity. There he spends his absinthe-fueled nights writing feverishly, whilst Nightgaunts dog his every step into the deepest regions of the netherworld of his darkest dreams and naked succubi call to him with lurid siren songs that would wake the dead. By day he serves fish in a supermarket.
