While most writers of fairy tales cater to children, some offer up darker and slightly more twisted fare, such as this curious concoction intended for adults. Chock full of deliciously dark and often grimly humorous tales and poems, this singular literary feast is sure to satisfy the cravings of any reader with an appetite for the unusual. Containing three original works of short fiction, four original works of flash fiction, and six original works of poetry, the collection gets off to a playfully mischievous start with a spicy combo of gruesome terror and wry humor in "Troll Stew", a rather macabre nursery rhyme which lends its title to this delightfully strange and eclectic brew.

About Christopher Courtley

See more books from this Author
Christopher Courtley has been spinning tales for nearly four decades. He wrote his first poem when he was around eight, but it wasn't until his late teens that he became a prolific poet. Born and raised in the slums of New York City, he has come to appreciate the finer things in life, such as cutlery, napkins, music made with real instruments, sophisticated women, and good manners. When he is not languishing in an absinthe-soaked torpor, or wandering between the worlds, or being irritatingly distracted by the vicissitudes of earthly life, he spends his nights writing furiously, occasionally remembering to shave, bathe, and eat.
