The Curiosities- A Collection of Stories
NYT bestselling author of SHIVER Maggie Stiefvater, Brenna Yovanoff and Tessa Gratton's collection of stories - as well as conversations about where these stories come from - taken from their popular blog The Merry Sisters of Fate (http://community.livejournal.com/merry_fates).
From flesh-eating faeries and demons in love to unearthly magicians and alternate histories, a collection of mesmerizing stories from three extraordinarily imaginative authors – Maggie Stiefvater, Brenna Yovanoff and Tessa Gratton.
Maggie Stiefvater is the New York Times best-selling author of SHIVER, Brenna Yovanoff’s THE REPLACEMENT published in Fall 2010 (Razorbill) and was one of Booklist’s Top 10 picks of ‘the best debut novels for youth published in the last year’ and picked up two starred reviews pre-publication. THE SPACE BETWEEN followed in Fall 2011 to rave reviews. Tessa Gratton’s BLOOD MAGIC published as a major lead title in Fall 2011 (Random House).
The stories are taken from the Sisters’ popular blog, The Merry Sisters of Fate (http://community.livejournal.com/merry_fates) but also includes one original story from each author as well as doodles and conversations (whether email, Twitter, or IM) about the process of writing and where the stories come from.
