Description

Nominated for a World Fantasy Award, Bluegrass Symphony is Lisa L. Hannett's debut collection. In these twelve stories, shapeshifting is both a bootlegger's skill and a twig-wife's cruel punishment. Desperate deals are brokered between woodsmen and minotaurs, fae creatures and midwives, soul-smoking mayors and pegasus-riding delivery girls--for safety, as well as selfishness. These are tales of the superstitions, dreams, nightmares and realities of life in harsh prairie country, trailer parks, and deep woods teeming with wolves. They tell of revenants and cowboys, pageant queens and rednecks, soothsaying fowl and talking squirrels--and the magic that draws such strange folk together.
