The most capricious of elements, air is the domain of all winged creatures, but also of tricksters, spirits, elves and fairies. This ethereal element is as difficult to pin down as the wind so for this anthology, especially, I am open to stories whose genres also transcend usual definitions. I want stories which are light as a summer breeze, and also those which rage with the drama of a tornado. I want action, ideas and movement but also whimsy and transformation. Grand, high-adventure and cozy close-to-home conflicts.
I want to fit as many airy creatures into this anthology as possible, so in addition to sylphs, spirits and swan maidens I want air dragons, fae, griffins, sirens, rocs, Thunderbird, Pegasus… and because I’m open to combining aether with air in this situation why not also hit me with your angels, phantoms, Yōkai and nymphs too!
