From ecstasy to tragedy, with love blossoming shyly, love at first sight, and even love borne of practical necessity—beloved fantasist Jane Yolen's newest collection denies the very notion of simple love stories. This bewitching assemblage of passion and adventure by a legendary, World Fantasy Award-winning author, is a delightful read for absolutely anyone who appreciates witty, compelling and cleverly-wrought romance.

“Jane Yolen is, simply, a legend.”
Catherynne M. Valente, author of The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own

A ship at sea encounters a mysterious merman they must learn to communicate with. A fairy rake meets the real Juliet behind Shakespeare's famous tragedy. A jewelry artist falls into the past to meet the man who will establish a long-running silversmithy. And more than one ignored princess finds their match in the most unlikely men.

Following the acclaimed collections The Emerald Circus and The Midnight Circus, The Scarlet Circus brings you the many treasures and transformations that only love can bring.
