Have you ever read a story or watched or movie or listened to a song and thought, “I wish that the writer had done x”?
That’s what 3-4-1: Three Tales Told Nine Ways is. The three authors involved each wrote a main story. Then they swapped those around and asked each other to take whatever part of the story inspired them and write their own version. So some of the tales are thematic copies with a change of scenery and some take just a few words and spin out an entirely new story.
Within these pages you’ll find stories about dijnns, aging superheroes, questioning artists, mad scientists, existence, irritated candy shop owners, identity, nameless gods and multi-dimensional travelers. There is a story for everyone spanning a wide variety of genres and themes.
On top of that, three artists came on board to mirror the writers’ efforts in the visual sense. So each artist illustrated one main story and then created two more pieces of art based of the art or style of the other artists and their interpretations of their writer’s story.
So pull up a chair, open the book and see which tale is right for you.
