The Midnight Circus

Author(s): Jane Yolen; Theodora Goss (Introduction by)


In the newest volume of her World Fantasy Award-winning short story collections, beloved author Jane Yolen's dark side has fully emerged. Her vivid, startling, and thrilling tales and poems of the supernatural--from icy-hearted witches to sometimes-innocent shapeshifters--reveal a classic storyteller at the height of her powers.


"Look this way, look that; blazing her consummate imagination against the shadows of human sorrow, Jane Yolen has done it again."--Gregory Maguire, author of Wicked


Jane Yolen is the Hans Christian Andersen of America" --The New York Times


Welcome to the Midnight Circus--and watch your step. The dark imaginings of fantasy icon Jane Yolen are not for the faint of heart. In these sixteen brilliantly unnerving tales and poems, Central Park becomes a carnival where you can--but probably shouldn't--transform into a wild beast. The Red Sea will be deadly to cross due to a plague of voracious angels. Meanwhile, the South Pole is no place for even a good man, regardless of whether he is living or dead.


Wicked, solemn, and chilling, the circus is ready for your visit--just don't arrive late.
