Publisher Description

What if… anything was possible?

What really lurks beneath the humdrum and the mundane, the ubiquitous and the familiar? And what if you came face to face with it?

Enter a world where goddesses descend to earth, mythical creatures materialise out of thin air, ghosts mean well, and limbs have minds of their own. In a series of tales that explore the fantastical and the surreal, the lives of ordinary people are upturned by bizarre incidents and mysterious happenings.

Gloriously imagined, deliciously crafted and wickedly entertaining, Eight takes you on a fabulous romp around multiple countries and cultures of the world, with just a wee bit of something extra in the mix.

Sit back, relax and get ready to savour a slice of some delectably fantastical cake!

Netgalley reviews:

"Delightful light confection that goes around the globe with short fantasy stories. From Argentina to somewhere in the air Hitting Germany, France, Egypt, Korea, China, India in-between. Little quick tastes of a dot of sweet, sour, spicy, hot & cold tidbits to make you smile or think. Most poignant I thought was the German & the rabbit but they were all tasty fare."

"One of the reasons I love Gabriel Garcia Marquez is because of the magic realism.These 8 short stories take place in different countries and while dealing with very serious subjects(disability,addiction,loss, loneliness...)each of them has a touch of magic realism that make it very easy to get immersed in them."

"This was such a magical book I thoroughly enjoyed every second of reading it. It was well written with such brilliant imagery. A great read."

"I'll be honest straight away and say I have a hate/hate relationship with short stories and all my previous reviews will attest to that. No matter how many I read, I just don't enjoy them. They're not for me and never seem to grab me or keep me interested. But I think I've finally found the one collection that has shown me what a good short story can be. They're whimsical and magical and almost fairytale like but steeped in realism with an important life lesson at the end, but by approaching it in this way, they don't become corny or preachy or over the top."
