With 13 stories of the uncanny, the inexplicable, the extrapolative, and the absurd, there is something for every taste and fantasy. From an innovative hard science take on time travel to a magical realist story that reveals the primitive impulses beneath our civilized facades. From a wry subversion of the classic fairy tale quest, at one end of the spectrum, there are also stories set on alien worlds, in nanospace, and even in a Newfoundland pub. Within these pages is a disturbing look at extraterrestrial cookery, an updated Andersen fairy tale, a science fiction version of the Christmas story, and even an unlikely romance of a man and a wooden bridge.

'Here is an anthology that suggests the infinite variety of themes from which Canadian fantasists draw their inspiration.' - Eileen Kernaghan, shortlisted for a 2009 Sunburst Award for her novel 'Wild Talent'.
