"For the Love of Strangers by Jacqueline Horsfall provides an excellent foundation for Fantasy studies.

[T]his revision raises the bar for For the Love of Strangers's high standard of excellence, making sure that it stays one of the foremost Fantasy studies textbooks."
Horsfall's combination of fantasy and reality, along with her grasp of Russian mythology's deer goddess, make this a strong book for those who wish to learn more about fantasy writing. Shortlisted for the NY State Reading Association's Charlotte Award, For the Love of Strangers, is a well-crafted story that will linger in the minds and hearts of readers long after the book is put down.
