"A cursed village whose people would rather go blind than see their truths. A mysterious prophet whose promise of total equality does not end as foretold. A little girl who learns the true cost of plucking a rose. These tales and more are gathered in this satirical collection by Belanger. At turns charming, sarcastic, and incisive, these fractured fairytales explore our "what if's" and "how can we do better's?" Originally published by Shadowfox Publications in 1996. Released for the first time in a digital format."
