Praise for the book
“Morden crafts an enchanting labyrinth of tales that feel ancient and timeless both. Each artfully written story feels beautifully balanced, with language both evocative and restrained. A stunning addition to any bookcase.” Gabriela Houston
“A collection of tales like no other, with stories so wickedly funny and deliciously dark, I found myself longing for more of the magic captured within the pages, which prompted another read-through, and then another. From cunning spellcasters, glittering moon queens, and vengeful fairies, I was captivated by each of their lives and the worlds they inhabited. The masterful storytelling weaves a spell that seizes your imagination, making each story an unforgettable journey into realms beyond your wildest dreams.” Damaris Young

“So find yourself a fireside chair, steel yourself for some dark reading and prepare to be unsettled. They’re not called Strange Tales for nothing.” Jon Gower
