You've found the right place for the dark, the weird, and the disturbingly beautiful. From flesh-eating faeries and demons in love, to unearthly magicians and alternate histories, the Merry Fates explore the creepy shadows where monsters and magic touch our world. Sometimes contemporary and humorous, at other times tormented, romantic, or drawing heavily from fairy tales, there’s something for everyone in the short stories.
Every month, the we offer three original short stories. Tessa tends toward the mythical and bloody, Maggie prefers her monsters with a heavy dose of angst and sarcasm, and Brenna lures readers in with delicate and dangerous sense of the macabre.
Recently, we sold a collection of stories to Andrew Karre at Carolrhoda Lab for publication in 2012. The project will explore the way we write and edit our stories, including chats, emails, and commentary from readers. We're very excited about it! For more information, click here!
The name Merry Sisters of Fate comes from a traditional Irish reel. Listen to a version by Altan.
