The Wilful Eye
Tales from the Tower
edited by Isabelle Carmody and Nan McNab

Margo Lanagan (Tender Morsels), Rosie Borella, Isobelle Carmody, Richard Harland (Worldshaker), Margaret Mahy (The Seven Chinese Brothers), and Martine Murray (Henrietta There's No One Better) have taken inspiration from stories that have shaped us all, tales like "Beauty and the Beast," "The Steadfast Tin Soldier," and "The Snow Queen."

This collection carries universal themes of envy and desire, deception and abandonment, courage and sacrifice.

Characters are enchanted, they transgress, they yearn, they hunger, they hate, and, sometimes, they kill.
Some of the stories inhabit a traditional fairytale world, while others are set in the distant future.

Some are set in the present and some in an alternative present. The stories offer no prescription for living or moral advice and none belong in a nursery.
