Kerry E.B. Black corralled these untameable beasts for your pleasure.

Some nightmares possess panache, tripping into a subconscious with surprising delicacy
to first creep into the dreamer’s trust.
Others pound their splintered hooves through memories, scattering fear with every thundering footfall.
Fairy Herds & Mythscapes
A 3rd collection of short horror by Kerry E.B. Black,
author of 2020 TAZ award-winning short story collection Herd of Nightmares.
This latest volume of short stories stampedes into the realm of tales inspired by global fairy tales and myths.
To survive a trip through the vale of the fair folk, you must know the rules. Be polite, but don't say thank you. Iron brings death to the fey, so if you carry it, be prepared for aggression. Stick to the path, keep your word, and be industrious. And NEVER eat goblin food.
(There are many more. They can be fun.)
