Where to buy it


Like 16 medieval B-movies, this collection offers compelling characters and obscure imagery, from insane doctors and supernatural dogs to dead men and a real ninja turtle. Believing that there is a shape that both fact and fiction seek, these intriguing tales are narratives occurring in defiance of the things they harbor.
