Terry's cautionary tale is appropriately enough number 13 in Clive's ShadowGrimm series...
Have you ever wondered why some of the most gifted people seem doomed to ultimate failure. Terry's story shows how thin is the line between success and disappointment.
Clive Gilson's ShadowGrimm series of tales have in various degrees been published in magazines and online over the last seven or eight years, with a number also appearing in short story anthologies in the UK.
In his ShadowGrimm world of make-believe Clive first developed his love of traditional story-telling, and has taken a number of established tales from Andersen, the Brothers Grimm, Perrault et al, and twisted them into modern tales of magical realism and fantasy - very much in the tradition of Angela Carter and Frank Baum.
This new collection, published for the first time under the name ShadowGrimm, finally brings Clive's many and varied earlier tales together for the very first time.

Good story, a fun tale with a sad though predictable ending. Thanks for the free read!
