Children can have a cruel, absolute sense of justice. Children can kill a monster and feel quite proud of them. A girl can look at her brother and believe they’re destined to be a knight and a bard who battle evil. She can believe she’s found the thing she’s been made for. Hazel lives with her brother, Ben, in the strange town of Fairfold where humans and fae exist side by side. The faeries’ seemingly harmless magic attracts tourists, but Hazel knows how dangerous they can be, and she knows how to stop them. Or she did, once. At the centre of it all, there is a glass coffin in the woods. It rests right on the ground and in it sleeps a boy with horns on his head and ears as pointy as knives. Hazel and Ben were both in love with him as children. The boy has slept there for generations, never waking. Until one day, he does… As the world turns upside down and a hero is needed to save them all, Hazel tries to remember her years spent pretending to be a knight. But swept up in new love, shifting loyalties, and the fresh sting of betrayal, will it be enough?

This collection of short stories features science fiction tales about the future. DOCTOR-PATIENT CONFIDENTIALITY: A young woman wakes up in a cryomed ward of a hospital. As she recalls what led to her confinement, she starts to realise just what the consequences of her actions were, and how much time has passed since she was injured.

(*Note*: this story was previously published in the Soothe the Savage Beast anthology.) THE GIRL AND THE MACHINE: A man has limited abilities to travel through time, but a cute girl pops up in his life, informing him that her time machine can open the door to far greater powers. But there’s something ominous about it… (*Note*: This story is available as an individual short.) LAG: A reporter had been chasing down a lead…but after a malfunction in the teleporter she used, she’s forgotten what the lead was. Now she’s searching for clues in her own life to discover what it was she’s missing. THE TURING TEST: A college student participates in a turing test to see if she can distinguish which of the two subjects is human and which is an android. (*Note:* A version of this story is a part of the Special Edition of The Body Electric novel and was previously published in Lightspeed Magazine.) AS THEY SLIP AWAY: A group of artists on a generation space ship that reviles art is given a unique assignment, one that draws one young lady far too close to a possessive man protected by the ship’s government. (*Note:* This short story is available free online and is linked to the Across the Universe world.) Also included in this collection are end notes, describing the inspiration behind each short story and hidden clues and allusions to sci fi classics. The collection concludes with two sample chapters from Beth’s latest book, The Body Electric.
