Cast the Cards
For over 250 years, the use of the tarot for divination has been a mainstay of mystical and occult practices. The themes and forces represented by the cards are said to govern our lives and our destinies. Whether you believe that or not, the story of the cards is nevertheless the story of our lives – the accomplishments and the pitfalls, the path from soaring joy to crushing defeat and back again. Cast the Cards is a collection of six all-new short stories that explore snapshots of some remarkable individuals trying to make their way along that path.
Edith, a woman who has been burned too many times to play the Fool again. Jason, a young man whose bisexuality has made him feel like a Hermit. Sjofn the witch, on a quest to free herself from the control of the Hanged Man. Aaron, a dominant soul stuck in an ivory Tower. Bea, a mind reader weary of battle, but still with the Star in her eyes. Caleb, courted by a god beneath a dream of the Moon.
The path the tarot set before us is never easy, but by facing it with strength and determination, the rewards it promises are worth the risk.
