Mischief, magic, love and war.

These are the stories Shakespeare never told. Five of the most exciting names in genre fiction today – Jonathan Barnes, Adrian Tchaikovsky, Emma Newman, Foz Meadows and Kate Heartfield – delve into the world the Bard created to weave together a story of courage, transformation and magic.

Including an afterword by Dr. John Lavagnino, The London Shakespeare Centre, King’s College London

 

My Review

Absolutely loved this collection of short stories; they were entertaining and a lovely way to take Shakespeare’s characters beyond the confines of his plays. The stories are very well written and enjoyable. It does help if you have a vague understanding of the plays but I think you could probably enjoy them without it.

5/5 A must for any Bard aficionado.
