YOU'VE TAKEN UP WITH DISTURBING COMPANIONS

There's a fairy in the garden,
A monster in the closet,
An alien in the back yard,
And a ghost by the refrigerator...

One mirror lies,
One dragon makes an ally,
One ring bites...

And they don't make genies like they used to,

YOU'VE TAKEN UP WITH DISTURBING COMPANIONS

There's a fairy in the garden,
A monster in the closet,
An alien in the back yard,
And a ghost by the refrigerator...

One dragon makes an ally,
One ring bites...

And they don't make genies like they used to,
Or gorgeous models...
Or even princesses.

Ten short, startling fantasy tales from Holly Lisle, author of Talyn, Hunting the Corrigan's Blood, Warpaint, Fire in the Mist, and much more.

Meet the Author

I’VE BEEN WRITING FICTION PROFESSIONALLY since 1991, when I sold Fire In The Mist, the novel that won me the Compton Crook Award for best first novel. I have to date commercially published more than thirty novels and am indie-publishing my backlist, plus my new fiction, as well as a stack of comprehensive writing courses. I’m currently prepping to write (simultaneously) the Expansion to my How To Write A Series course, and the six-novella series The Longview, set in my Settled Space universe, which is also Cadence Drake’s home. (Hunting the Corrigan’s Blood, Warpaint, and more coming.)
I had an ideal childhood for a writer...which is to say, it was filled with foreign countries and exotic terrains, alien cultures, new languages, the occasional earthquake, flood, or civil war, and one story about a bear, which you can read here:

Delightfully well done! Kudos to Miss Lisle. The stories are short, pointed and sometimes sweet...in the sense of.. perhaps, and Indian dish, fiery, different and surprise!, really really good! Makes you want more!  I've always enjoyed Miss Lisles' books, this one was great! Give it a try, but beware, they're like chocolate, you're going to want more!
