Make Believe: Stories
AltmetricsView Usage Statistics
Collected here are eleven short stories of magic, distant worlds, survival, transformation, and healing. A war orphan fights for the chance to be a queen. A young Polish girl on her way to America finds solace and courage in her Babcia’s fairytale. A modern-day pact with a demon provides respite for a young woman’s chronic pain. A closeted monk remembers what he has given up after a sip of magic beer—and more. Each story provides a new perspective on how magic can awaken us to ourselves—and to the beauty of being alive.
