About the Book
Five short stories of love and the supernatural, with original illustrations throughout by the author. Let me tell you a story about love; but when I do, beware— because love may be beguiled or betrayed, and there are dark, uncanny figures moving among the trees who sometimes twist the fate of lovers to ends you might not expect. Among these tales of human desire and supernatural design you will hear of a besotted man who unwittingly strikes a terrible bargain to secure the woman he adores; of a couple who find that their romance has already been foretold, long ago; and of a lonely girl who longs to find love, but does not reckon on the dreadful consequences when love finds her first. Let me tell you a story that's true— or as true as you believe it to be— because although you may hear nothing new, you might hear something as old as the hills that surprises you.
