Read full description of the books:
This collection is a too-brief collection of the latest Tanith Lee short fiction that encompasses her unique take on dark fantasy. She is one of the best living (and under-rated) practitioners of the the modern Weird Tale.
CLOCKATRICE: Worth the price of the book, this is a rich, weird wild ride of a story that mixes seamlessly, high fantasy and modern life. One of Tanith's best.
MALICIOUS SPRINGS: This is a contemporary horror story with an unexpectedly warm heart at the center.
THE GREYVE: A contemporary Kafka-esque fable.
THE HEART OF ICE: Fairy-tale fantasy, very reminiscent of Hans Christian Anderson and written in the high style
CALINNEN: Almost Arthurian fantasy, gently disquieting
EN FORET NOIRE: Another dark fairy tale about the Forest Primeval.
FR'EULOGY: Vignette. (So no spoilers)!
THE GOD OKREM: Very Clark Ashton Smith: what they call "hothouse fantasy."
IN THE COUNTRY OF THE BLIND: Vignette/fable (so no spoilers!)
MY HEART: A STONE: A novelette; mash-up of Dickensian historical fiction and the weird tale.
KILLING HER: Black comedy
