A fierce host rides across the winter sky at night
In wild pursuit of whoever crosses their path
Peals of thunder follow the horses as they gallop through the clouds
Fire flashing from their hooves
The baying of the hounds echoes across the sky
Their sharp teeth glinting in the light of the moon
The Huntsman blows his horn, and the Fae ride behind him
Their faces both beautiful and terrible to behold
When the nights are long and the winter winds howl, stay inside
Lest you cross the path of the Hunt...and become their prey
The Wild Hunt contains thirteen stories based on the wide and varied folklore of the Wild Hunt. In some tales, the leader of the hunt is Odin; in others it’s King Arthur, Herodias, or Herne the Hunter. Sometimes the riders are Fae; sometimes they are specters, or skeletons, or strange beasts never before seen by mortal eyes.
But no matter who the hunters are, you definitely don’t want to be the one they’re after...

Jump into the waves, and enter the world of Faerie!
On a rock by the shore sits a mermaid fair
Dreaming of her lost lover as she combs her hair
Kelpies, and selkies, and the great snakes of the sea
All stop and listen as she sings of a love never to be
For the sailor she saved from those dark, storm-tossed waves
Got back on his ship, and sailed away
Now the mermaid's alone, with broken-hearted dreams
And far, far away the sailor stares out at the sea

What if you followed a path through a city park, and found yourself in another land? What if the archway you just passed is really a portal to Faerie? What if the guardian of an opening into our world has perished, and left the doorway unattended?
If you catch a glimpse of the Faery Queen
Consider whether you should remain unseen
If you come across a faery ring
Listen to the wind laugh, and murmur and sing
But beware, for if you enter the world of the Fae
You may have no choice but to stay...

Reviews for other WCPNW Anthologies:
★★★★★ "What I really enjoyed about this book is how all the stories felt as if they were another continuation of the previous story. Part of but separate. Truly enjoyable. Looking forward to ready the next book."
★★★★★ "Old fashioned spooky fun! Recommend especially for young adults."
★★★★★ "I enjoyed the variety of stories, and that none were hideously gory. Don't let the "about the town" intro dissuade you! I hadn't expected humor or a sexy edge, which some of them had, so that was fun, too."
A little jaunt through town. Enjoy delicacies at our Centennial Fest. Play in our woods. There's just something about Mirror Point and Way's End that grabs at your soul.
Dive deep into Spirit Lake. Let your feet dangle and allow the cool water to kiss the underside of your neck, if you dare. Volume 2 brings the chills! Jump right in and have a monstrously good time!
Buy Tasting Evil: Volume Two for that special Pacific Northwest experience.
