About the Book

Short stories are but a slice of life, yet they are complete, even in few words. Although the endings are not always happy, they are indeed endings. These slices of life take us to many times and places, where we meet people with a distinct set of problems—and sometimes, if they are very lucky, solutions. A Lover’s Potion is an imaginative walk through fantasy and fiction. In these collected stories, we visit a small shire where witchcraft mania runs wild. A peasant girl becomes pregnant with her aristocratic lover, who presents her with a gift of jewellery, confounding a team of modern archaeologists. There is even a girl with incredibly long hair, locked in a tower, but she is not what she seems. Each story focuses on people and their fascination with one another. All human beings share desires, endeavors, and loyalties. Through actions, we reveal ourselves. The characters in these stories each long for something—and in some cases, the characters aren’t human at all. Read of compassion, romance, and revenge in this riveting collection of wiles and whimsy.
