Fractured Fairy tales meets The Twilight Zone in this short story collection of four uniquely captivating, edgy, fantastical tales, each with a powerful message that lingers long after the reads... 
1. In Finnegus Boggs, Confessions of a Marid, Djinn, the genie grants two Oakland punks a chance to save the other's life. 
2. Hawk and Megan learn a valuable life lesson about love in Bird's Eye View. 
3. The Activation is a cautionary tale for bickering children, and the parents who fail to silence them. 
4. Sylverster McCain travels a sliver of light to reset Faith's path in life in The Morality Police.

Fractured Fairy Tales of the Twilight Zone is a collection of four short stories, each with a supernatural element. Each story was quite engaging, some of them kind of creepy, but they all had a thought-provoking moral. All are set in the present-day, with no fairies in sight!

As with many self-published stories, these may have been better with slightly tighter editing – one or two of them felt a bit long to me and there were some other small errors, but my editing concerns aside I thought these stories were very imaginative and certainly worth a quick read.

Anni lives in Brisbane, Australia with her young family. She loves everything fantasy and science fiction and believes sleep is really very underrated.
