Mythical shape changers fill the pages of “The Beastly Bride,” an anthology edited by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling.
More than 20 authors have contributed to this collection, the fourth mythic anthology from Datlow and Windling, including Ellen Kushner, Peter S. Beagle and Jane Yolen.
Shape changers aren’t limited to werewolves and that alien bounty hunter on later seasons of “The X-Files” (yes, I just seriously made that reference), but a whole host of creatures from myth: vampires, mermaids and, yes, were-creatures.
The short stories take readers around the globe to places like Finland, Japan and the Middle East to the middle of Ohio and the American Southwest. “Jenny Coon Peterson
