The fantastic, strange, and hauntingly beautiful come together in the short stories of authors Amber Sparks and A. A. Balaskovits. Praised by The Washington Post as “a masterful work of speculative fiction,” Sparks’s collection The Unfinished World features a wide cast of characters–from time travelers to orphaned taxidermists–rendered in lyrical prose. Winner of the 2015 Santa Fe Writers Project Awards, Balaskovit’s debut collection Magic for Unlucky Girls transforms fairy tales, twisting and turning familiar tropes into stories that are refreshing and unique.
