about

Things that never were, things that might be, and things that may yet come to pass…

A monster under the bed. A Rock God in deep space. A haunted castle in post-war Germany. A dark secret in Harlan County, Kentucky. The birth of an angel and a demon. A garage band composed of misfit teen weres. Babes and bayous, jealousy and jack o’lanterns.

Within these pages, New York Times bestselling author Alethea Kontis creates worlds of delight and despair, whimsy and wickedness. The colorful menagerie of stories and poems in this collection will transport you to the magical and dangerous places you always knew might exist—somewhere, somehow—once upon a time.
