IT'LL SOON BE DARK
Eighteen dark faerie tales lie within these pages.
Like the originals, they are. Like those that came before, those that warned of the darkness. Not like modern tales, no. No happy endings in sight.
These stories are all new (not re-tellings of old tales) and inspired from folklore from all around the world. They are filled with equal measures of fright and fancy.
You see, the fey are different from you and me. They don’t think like us. They don't take kindly to our definitions and ideals. They are more than just the tricksters of legend. They are complicated. And they are everywhere and in wide variety. Call them fairies, spirits, yokai, peri—you will never forget them. We are insignificant in the face of that uncaring, alien intelligence. Until we catch their eye, that is.
And now, we’re unleashing that overwhelming tide of fae on you. To be clear, we aren’t trying to teach you anything—we just want to play with your head for a bit.
