Adrian is the author of Tales from the Wood, and many other fairy tale-inspired short stories.
With fifty-eight stories published across three volumes there is no sign of the well drying up and new tales keep popping up, unbidden. Some are reworkings of well-known stories familiar to us from our childhoods, but with different perspectives; others tales were inspired by all manner of sources from Chinese folktales to obscure collections made in the nineteenth century; and some of the stories are completely original sharing only an atmosphere and archetypes with the old fairy stories.
I’ll be talking to Adrian about all the different types of writing that he juggles, including his own take on traditional fairy tales. And, of course, he’ll be sharing his selections for this week’s Apocalypse Books.
