What Happens at the Tavern Stays at the Tavern:
Since Tolkien's time, many authors have taken readers along on elaborate treks through fantastic worlds. In What Happens at the Tavern Stays at the Tavern, we asked writers to tackle the pauses and interstices in a fantasy quest. What kinds of steamy adventures happen behind the scenes, when our heroes and heroines are trekking along their journey?
The word "fantasy" evokes many different responses in people, but the epic fantasy quest is the heart of the genre. Heroes and heroines set off to defeat evil. Haven't you ever wondered what happens behind the scenes, during the downtime the authors gloss over? "What Happens at the Tavern Stays at the Tavern" gives us the peek behind the curtains we've all been waiting for (some of us since the "teaser" excerpt in the Harvard Lampoon's "Bored of the Rings"…).
In her latest anthology, editor Jennifer Levine invites you to escape into a world of fantasy, one where you get magic, warriors, fantasy worlds, and sex.Available at:
