This edition limited to 400 copies. “Stories of magic and myth, folklore and fairy traditions, the occult and the outré, inspired by the rich mystical world of Ireland’s greatest poet, W. B. Yeats. We invited ten contemporary writers to celebrate Yeats’s contributions to the history of the fantastic and supernatural in literature, drawing on his work for their own new and original tales. Each has chosen a phrase from his poems, plays, stories, or essays to herald their own explorations in the esoteric. Alongside their own powerful qualities, the pieces here testify to the continuing resonance of Yeats’s vision in our own time, that deep understanding of the meshing of two worlds and the talismans of old magic.” New stories by Ron Weighell, D.P. Watt, Rosanne Rabinowitz, Caitrionia Lally, John Howard, Timothy Jarvis, Derek John, Lynda Rucker, Reggie Oliver and Nina Antonia. Cool idea. Groovy lineup. Nifty package. #64863
