If an experiment in time-travel goes awry, did it ever happen?
How long will a vendetta continue if the antagonists are infinite in number?
What horrors lurk in a fairy tale ending?
In this collection of loosely linked short stories, centuries-old conspiracies, hoaxes and confessions are uncovered, historiography is censored at its birth, and boundaries of form and style are broken to intrigue the reader with philosophical diversions and alternative readings of the past.
Whether joining mariners as they navigate between the worlds of the mythic and the real, reflecting Renaissance art in the video-blogging tourists of modern Rome, or seeing the pragmatism of a victorious samurai in the passing of an age of heroes, these Fables span ancient and modern, in ways that are new and thought-provoking, while remaining engaging tales of human experience.
