Cover Reveal: The Air Anthology

Have you been enjoying my short stories about superhero women in WW2 United Kingdom? I’ve got good news!

You’ve read Fire: Dragons, Demons, & Djinns. You’ve read Earth: Giants, Golems, & Gargoyles. And now you can have Air: Sylphs, Spirits, & Swan Maidens.

Presenting the cover of the latest elemental anthology and its glistening table of contents!

Air Sylphs Spirits and Swan Maidens

Whimsical, Inquisitive, Quick-Witted

Air is essential for life. The need for air is so important that breathing is instinctual. Yet Air is unstable and capricious, blowing gently as a summer breeze in one moment and blasting with the fury of a tornado in the next. No wonder that tricksters, fairies, and spirits belong to Air just as much as winged creatures. Elusive and ethereal, Air’s denizens are difficult to find and harder to capture.

Brave the ever-changing world of Air with these twenty-one stories and poems, featuring: Rose Strickman; Davian Aw; Mark Bruce; Alexandra Seidel; Damascus Mincemeyer; Cherry Potts; Ellen Huang; Giselle Leeb; Bronwynn Erskine; Kevin Cockle; Elizabeth R. McClellan; Chadwick Ginther; Christa Hogan; Rowena McGowan; Laura VanArendonk Baugh; Alyson Faye; Mara Malins; Sara C. Walker; Elise Forier Edie; Oliver Smith; and Sarah Van Goethem.
