Never Fear – The Tarot
A compendium of horror short stories based on the Tarot
13Thirty Books asked twenty-six authors to agree to write stories based on the Tarot, with the cards determining which stories the authors would write. Over the course of several months we reached out to some of the best genre authors and proposed our idea. Once we had our authors, we took a tarot deck and a list of all twenty-six names. We would read the author’s name, shuffle the deck, and draw a card. That tarot card and its traits were all the authors had to go on. The card was removed, the deck was reshuffled, and the next name was read off. This anthology contains twenty-six stories based on the twenty-two cards of the Major Arcana and the four cards of the Minor Arcana. Award-winning and New York Times bestselling authors combine their talents to deal out twenty-six dark tales influenced by the Tarot.
The anthology features C.L. Wilson’s first return to the Fading Lands since the conclusion of the Tairen Soul series, a short story about Shannisorran vel Celay. Based on the Ace of Swords, the short story, A Good Day to Die, finds Shan setting out on what he intends to be his last battle as he leads his men into the hive of a powerful Drogon Blood Lord.
