‘Cursed’, an anthology of dark fairytales is set for release on 3rd March 2020 from Titan Books.
Twenty curses from some of the genre’s finest purveyors of the magical, the twisted and the enchanting.
It’s the prick of blood, the bite of an apple, the evil eye, a wedding ring or a pair of red shoes. Curses come in all shapes and sizes, and when you least expect them…
Editors Marie O’Regan and Paul Kane present an anthology of unique twists on the fairy tale conceit of the curse from an exciting line-up of bestselling and award-winning authors. From the traditional to the modern, Cursed gives us brand new mythologies as well as new approaches to well-loved fables from a carefully cultivated selection of brand-new stories, folk-horror poetry, and modern classic tales. Some might shock you, some might make you laugh, and they will all impress you with their originality. But take caution as you read them, and be careful what you wish for.

CAREY, CHARLIE JANE ANDERS, KAREN JOY FOWLER, JANE YOLEN & ADAM STEMPLE, CATRIONA WARD, JEN WILLIAMS, JAMES BROGDEN, MAURA MCHUGH, CHRISTOPHER GOLDEN, MICHAEL MARSHALL SMITH, ANGELA SLATTER, LILITH SAINTCROW, CHRISTOPHER FOWLER, ALISON LITTLEWOOD, TIM LEBBON and MARGO LANAGAN.
