Desire. Wanting. Longing. They’re the "Pandora's Box" of human emotion, capable of inspiring us to great heights and yet also commonly responsible for our undoing. And when a master storyteller like Joan VanderPutten turns her keen eye and delightfully-twisted mind on the subject, the resulting stories are downright addictive themselves.

These ten short stories and twisted fairytales all deal with the theme of love, in its many different facets, whether pure or tainted. See Snow White and Rapunzel in a whole new light, ponder love from a very different viewpoint, see the world through the eyes of one who doesn't know what love is. These tales will bring smiles as well as tears, but offer no gurantee of a happy ending.

Devotion to a lost partner is one thing, devotion to the long dead quite another, and an orang-utan with a sweet tooth can be more appreciative than the family everything has been sacrificed for.
