The Night Bazaar is a secret marketplace of the rare, strange, occult, and dangerous. Its curious vendors specialize in services or objects which simply cannot be had elsewhere, for any price. This forbidden market has operated throughout history at various locales - but only for one week. It cannot simply be stumbled upon; you must be Invited. But how did it begin? This collection of thirteen eerie, fantastic, and magical works by various authors recounts the origin story of the Bazaar's first appearance, in St. Mark's Square, Venice, in the plague year of 1348. Some take place in those medieval days of fear, witchcraft, and murder. Other, more contemporary tales center on objects from that first bazaar - inherited, found, purchased, or stolen during the dark centuries since by the unsuspecting, foolish, and greedy (though seldom the completely innocent.) Together the linked stories take readers on a fantastical journey into astonishment, dread, and dark delight.
