Shadows on the Water Short Stories

Foreword by Steve Mentz
Created by Flame Tree Studio (Literature and Science)

A wonderful new book with short stories from open submissions and a curated selection of ancient myths and folk tales from Polynesia, Scotland, the Ancient Greeks and tales from the high sea. The mysteries of the rivers, the secrets of the lochs, the whispers across the vast stretches of the ocean, there are so many stories from the beginnings of civilisation, through myth and folklore, to the dark fantasies, and supernatural tales of the modern storyteller. The treasures under the sea, the siren call of the mermaid, the liberating spirits of the fountains and waterfalls, all feature here alongside iconic stories of creation, ancestor worship and the seductive shadows across the waters of life.

New, contemporary and notable writers featured are: Gustavo Bondoni, Melinda Brasher, Ramsey Campbell, Lyndsey Croal, Jess Gofton, J.E. Hannaford, M.K. Hardy, Derek Heath, R.J. Howell, Mackenzie Hurlbert, Rachael K. Jones, Amanda Cecelia Lang, Frazer Lee, Samara Lo, J.M. Merryt, Wendy Nikel, Jessica Peter, Marisca Pichette, D.S. Ravenhurst, Y.M. Resnik, Abhijeet Sathe, Amal Singh, and Lucy Zhang. These appear alongside classic work by Homer, Victor Hugo, Jack London, Herman Melville, Robert Louis Stevenson and more, including folklore and myths from around the world.

The gorgeous editions of Flame Tree Gothic Fantasy, Classic Stories and Epic Tales collections bring together the entire range of myth, folklore and modern short fiction. Highlighting the roots of suspense, supernatural, science fiction and mystery stories, the books in Flame Tree Collections series are beautifully presented, perfect as a gift and offer a lifetime of reading pleasure.
