Product description

Review

"Food for thought and refreshing new perspectives on how the messages of the original stories can be applied to modern times...especially recommended for those who would view the original classics with a new eye to their lasting relevance." - Midwest Book Review "Inventive author Clive Johnson brings to life [the age-old cultural icons] once again-with a cool modern twist." - BlueInk Review "It's a clever idea, handsomely executed in impeccable prose." - BlueInk Review "All in all, this is a delightful collection." - BlueInk Review "[Johnson's] passion for these stories, as well as the modern retellings, comes through clearly and it drew me in. Seven stories featuring everyday people dealing with astonishing circumstances." - N. N. Light "If you loved reading about Sinbad the Sailor or Aladdin as a kid, you'll love these retellings as an adult. A great way to escape for a few hours and a must read!" - N. N. Light "The narrative throughout the book flows effortlessly." - San Francisco Book Review "A worthy literary endeavor." - San Francisco Book Review

About the Author

Clive Johnson is a student and follower of the perennial tradition, the belief that many myths, fairy stories and faith traditions point to common truths at their heart. Clive is an interfaith minis-ter ordained by the One Spirit Interfaith Founda-tion, as well as a teacher, storyteller and retreat host. He has had a lifelong interest in the power of myth and the oral tradition of story telling. Being autistic, a would-be mystic and not approaching his reflections from an academic standpoint, he approaches his writing with an open heart and a keen curiosity. He has no fixed home, pursuing a nomadic lifestyle that allows him to follow his heart. This is his seventh book. Clive may be reached via his website, www.interfaithministry.co.uk.
