by Jane Yolen
Release date: October 1, 2020
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy, short stories

In her newest short fiction collection, beloved fantasy author Jane Yolen’s dark side has fully emerged. Her vivid, startling, and thrilling tales and poems of the supernatural ― from icy-hearted witches to sometimes-innocent shapeshifters ― reveal a classic storyteller at the height of her powers.

“Jane Yolen is the Hans Christian Andersen of America” ―The New York Times

Welcome to the Midnight Circus ― and watch your step. The dark imaginings of fantasy icon Jane Yolen are not for the faint of heart. In these sixteen brilliantly unnerving tales and poems, Central Park becomes a carnival where you can ― but probably should not ― transform into a wild beast. The Red Sea will be deadly to cross due to a plague of voracious angels. Meanwhile, the South Pole is no place for even a good man, regardless of whether he is living or dead.

Wicked, solemn, chilling, and droll, the circus is ready for your visit ― you just really won’t want to arrive late.
