Summary (From the publisher):

This superb collection of twenty short stories is drawn from the wide range of a writer hailed as "the Scheherazade of our time." Tanith Lee's powerful and disturbing fictions explore the forests of the imagination and the creatures that dwell there: the wolves and vampires: tigers and unicorns: dwarves, demons and enchanters.

Set in locations as exotic and diverse as India, the Greek islands, Paris, London, the future and the Flat Earth, these stories present us with a rich feast which, even as it delights and entertains us will cunningly reveal the old, dark bones of humankind.

The stories for the collection have been selected by the author, and illustrate the remarkable scope, versatility and artistry of her work. Forests of the Night includes award-winning tales like The Gorgon and Elle est trois la Mort, eight new, unpublished stories, and the highly-acclaimed Crying in the Rain, inspired by the Tchernobyl disaster.

Each story is prefaced with a short introduction by the author which offers fascinating and tantalising glimpses into a writer's world.
