Deep in the dark forest, in a cottage that spins on birds' legs behind a fence topped with human skulls, lives the Baba Yaga.
A guardian of the water of life, she lives with her sisters and takes to the skies in a giant mortar and pestle, creating tempests as she goes. Those who come across the Baba Yaga may find help, or hindrance, or horror. She is wild, she is woman, she is witch - and these are her tales.

"Perfect for horror fans who can't get enough of folklore and fairy-tale retellings that veer in unexpected directions."
- Booklist Starred Review

"Fans of folklore retellings will find plenty to enjoy."
- Publishers Weekly

"A powerful literary reflection..."
- Midwest book review

"Into the Forest explores the folklore of Baba Yaga through new tales, filled with transformation and retribution, from a masterful group of authors. We travel back and forth in time, from Europe to the American South as violence and madness drive the used, abused, and betrayed into dense stretches of trees. There we find a path to strenght and power, to unearthing or becoming the otherworldly Maiden, Mother, Crone."
- Linda D. Addison, award-winning author, HWA Lifetime Achievement Award recipient and SFPA Grand Master
