The ability for people to control (to some extent at
least) fire has long been held as one of the major events that contributed to
human evolution, but when fire eludes or escapes our control it is also one of
the most destructive forces on earth. Associated with passion, power, transformation
and purification, fire is a ferocious element with an unquenchable appetite.
We want to explore the many facets of this
beautifully furious element and the creatures associated with it so Fire: Demons, Dragons and Djinns will be
filled with stories about every kind of fiery creature you can imagine, not
only those listed in the subtitle. We’re looking for phoenixes, ifrits,
salamanders, lava monsters and fiery beasts no one has ever heard of before. And
of course this anthology will not be complete without at least one demon,
dragon and djinn!
