Fantasy Authors Pen 15 New Stories in Anthology for Teens

Fifteen best-selling and acclaimed fantasy authors conjure up a witches' brew of magical new short stories for teens in Magic in the Mirrorstone, an anthology to be published by Mirrorstone(TM) in February 2008. Dragons, ghosts, unicorns, and a generous helping of evil and mysterious creatures pepper this enthralling book, filled with tasty tales of imagination that readers ages 13-17 will devour like vampires at sundown.

The stories encompass many fantasy genres. Some are set in the contemporary adolescent world of high school cliques and crushes, while others conjure up fantasy worlds replete with goblins, mages, and fairy tale treasure. Wielding their pens like magic wands, the authors explore the many faces of teenage alienation. "Virgin," by Holly Black, author of the New York Times bestselling Spiderwick Chronicles, tells the edgy story of a homeless runaway. In "Blackwater Baby," Tiffany Trent, author of the first two books in Mirrorstone's "Hallowmere(TM)" series, serves up a chilling historical fantasy about a priest who steals the Marsh King's daughter.

Other contributors include former MTV producer and current DC Comics writer Cecil Castellucci, author of the acclaimed young adult novel Boy Proof; Cassandra Clare, author of the New York Times bestseller City of Bones; award- winning fantasy and science fiction author Nina Kiriki Hoffman; and many more.
