The daughter of a beloved children's author becomes entangled in a classic tale; a dedicated club of gourmands pursues the strangest and most exotic meal ever; the Ferryman on the river Styx takes a boatman's holiday; some kids at camp tell scary stories of a monster just beyond the reach of the campfire's light; and, after nearly forty years, Peter S. Beagle continues the beloved adventures of a magician and a girl who once met a unicorn.
