Philip Terry asked a number of contemporary writers to take a story from Ovid as their starting point and to set their imaginations free. The results are varied, startling, scary, sexy, endlessly illuminating and suggestive, often changing the shape of the modern short story itself. Contributors include Margaret Atwood, A.S. Byatt, M.J. Fitzgerald, Paul Griffiths, Sunit Namjoshi, Joyce Carol Oates, Michele Roberts, Marina Warner, Paul West and others.
