A murder, a troubled marriage, a mysterious benefactor, and a Russian fairy tale add up to terror and redemption in the sewers of Paris. Read “Commanding the Stones” by Laurel Anne Hill in the ONCE UPON A SCREAM Anthology.
…there was a tradition of telling tales with elements of the fantastic along with the frightful. Adults and children alike took heed not to go into the deep, dark woods, treat a stranger poorly, or make a deal with someone—or something—without regard for the consequences. Be careful of what you wish for, you just might get it.
From wish-granting trolls, to plague curses, and evil enchantresses, these tales will have you hiding under the covers in hopes they don’t find you. So lock you doors, shutter your windows, and get ready to SCREAM.
