The Television Bride is story #19 in Clive's ShadowGrimm series of modern fairy and folk tales.
It's all about "Dropped on your head" television - where ordinary folk are desperate to get in on the act...
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.

Interesting unique short story, paralleling real life in a way. Kind of a weird twist at the end. Thanks for the free read!
