When the world isn’t so great (okay, when it’s a dumpster fire) and you don’t have the time or perhaps the mental capacity to read, a movie with a guaranteed happily ever after can be a great solution.

I, like millions of people, struggle with depression and anxiety. I know that I’m not alone in this…but that is extremely difficult to remember when the clouds come rolling in. I deal with depression, anxiety, and multiple chronic health issues and I find myself struggling on a regular basis.

And there’s such a huge stigma about mental health in the media, and our society in general, that it can feel suffocating and almost dangerous to say it out loud. And for anyone who isn't white, cis, het, able, etc… it’s so much right now.

Anthologies always have a theme, whether it's a setting, a trope, or a cause. By giving each author a different season, the theme of the upcoming Seasons of Sorcery anthology allows four talented fantasy authors to pool their talents but retain some of the signature elements of the worlds their readers love.
