The Ogre's Wife: Fairy Tales for Grownups

313 pages4 hours


A World Fantasy Award finalist in its print edition, THE OGRE'S WIFE is the first story collection by Richard Parks. The introduction was written by award-winning master fantasist Parke Godwin, who has followed the author's career from first bloom until today. All but one of the stories have been previously published in either magazines (mostly Realms of Fantasy) or anthologies. That one, Doing Time in the Wild Hunt, is original to the collection. Also included in this electronic edition is an appendix containing the author's notes on each story.

"[It] is an absolute treasure of a collection, one that I know I will return to again and again." -- Charles De Lint in Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, July, 2002
