Table of Contents – Eurasian Monsters
We are proud to reveal the table of contents for our last volume in Fox Spirit Books of Monsters: Eurasian Monsters!
The series, edited by Margrét Helgadóttir, has dark fiction and art about scary monsters and dark creatures from around the world, seven volumes between 2014 and 2020. The series is our grand world tour and we have so far been to Europe, Africa, Asia, the Pacific region, and Central, South and North America.
A number of the stories have been award winners individually across the series, many more have picked up nominations, and our editor won the very first Brave New Words award for her work on Pacific Monsters. These are beautiful books full of incredible tales and monstrous images.
It’s been a hell of journey so far. Sadly, all travels must have an end, and now this series will close with Eurasian Monsters. This December we bring you 17 dark tales from the vast region stretching from the Chinese border (but not including China) to Eastern parts of East Europe. We are proud to tell that we have stories from all over Russia, from Ukraine, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Moldova, Poland, Hungary, and Bulgaria.
We have as many as seven translated stories, six are translated exclusively for this book. You will not want to miss this – we have stories from authors who’s never been translated to English before!
