What if the fae were still here, living among us? Perhaps living in secret, doing their best to pass for human? Or perhaps their existence is acknowledged, but they're still struggling to fit in. How have they survived? Are they outcasts clinging to the edges of society, or do their powers ensure success in the mortal realm? Here are fourteen fabulous tales—ranging from humor to dark fantasy—that explore how the creatures of fae are fitting into the modern world.

From a mortal who offers to do internet marketing for a woman bent on reclaiming her baby from the Queen of the a dryad grove menaced by urban a Selkie in need of a new home and career...these are original looks at how the world of the imagination can survive and perhaps even thrive in the everyday mortal lands.

Another solid anthology by Joshua Palmatier and Patricia Bray!  The stories in this collection run from the light-hearted to the downright creepy!  This anthology had me enthralled from beginning to end, with stories from Seannan McGuire, Anton Strout, Elizabeth Bear and Jean-Marie Ward.  Do yourself a favor and read this anthology.  Perfect for a summer time read.
