I have a new hardback copy of The Coyote Road: Trickster Tales edited by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling to give out to one lucky winner.
This is a fantastic anthology that asked 26 authors to explore the myth of the trickster.
Here is the synopsis for the book:
Coyote. Ansani. Brer Rabbit. Trickster character have long been a staple of folk literature-and are a natural choice for the overarching subject of acclaimed editors Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling's third mythic anthology. The Coyote Road features a remarkable range of authors, each with his or her fictional look at a trickster character.
These authors, including Holly Black (The Spiderwick Chronicles), Charles de Lint (The Blue Girl), Ellen Klages (The Green Glass Sea), Kelly Link (Magic for Beginners), Patricia A. McKillip (Ombria in Shadow), and Jane Yolen, have crafted stories and poems drawing from cultures and traditions all over the world-each surprising, engrossing, and though-provoking. Terri Windling provides a comprehensive introduction to the trickster myths of the world, and the entire book is highlighted by the remarkable decorations of Charles Vess.
