The Giant’s Wife (2004)


When he reached the Coldlands, he had crossed a thousand miles knowing only that his search was for an end – and for his wife.

Don’t look for tales of love’s sweet harmony in these stories. They speak of the dark side of love, where an anti-Cupid aims poisoned arrows and where love songs are jarringly out of tune. Contributing twenty-two exclusive new tales to this book are twenty-one masters of the short story art from continental USA, Hawaii, Canada, UK, continental Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
