Here be dragons and sorcery, time travel and sorrow.
Vicious garden gnomes. A grounded phoenix rider. A new mother consumed with vengeance. A dying god. Soul magic. These stories wrestle with the experience of loss—of loved ones, of relationships, of a sense of self, of health—and forge a path to hope as characters fight their way forward.
From bestsellers and SPFBO finalists to rising voices, 13 exceptionally talented authors explore the many facets of grief and healing through the lens of fantasy and sci-fi. In these difficult times, they transform their individual experiences into stories that resonate with audiences who are looking for a touch of magic in their pain.
“From confronting dragons, witches, or monsters, The Alchemy of Sorrow may help fight one’s inner demons.” – Manhattan Book Review
