Rhonda Parrish

Author Rhonda Parrishabout this anthology: "Rhonda Parrish delivered tales of character that were "evil, doomed or both." The scale and range in Scarecrow kept me turning pages, seeking the promised huge variety of story and the authors delivered. A fantastic partner to Corvidae with something again that unique. This truly has been yet another amazing group of stories!" Eric Kimminau, Reviewer for Tangent Online

Hay-men, mommets, tattie bogles, kakashi, tao-tao—whether formed of straw or other materials, the tradition of scarecrows is pervasive in farming cultures around the world. The scarecrow serves as decoy, proxy, and effigy—human but not human. We create them in our image and ask them to protect our crops and by extension our very survival, but we refrain from giving them the things a creation might crave—souls, brains, free-will, love.

Within these pages, ancient enemies join together to destroy a mad mommet, a scarecrow who is a crow protects solar fields and stores long-lost family secrets, a woman falls in love with a scarecrow, and another becomes one. Encounter scarecrows made of straw, imagination, memory, and robotics while being spirited to Oz, mythological Japan, other planets, and a neighbor's back garden. After experiencing this book, you'll never look at a hay-man the same.

Featuring all new work by Jane Yolen, Andrew Bud Adams, Laura Blackwood, Amanda Block, Scott Burtness, Amanda C. Davis, Megan Fennell, Kim Goldberg, Katherine Marzinsky, Craig Pay, Sara Puls, Holly Schofield, Virginia Carraway Stark, Laura VanArendonk Baugh, and Kristina Wojtaszek.

I have edited a fair number of anthologies over the past few years but I am extra proud of the degree of diversity and high-quality stories contained within SCARECROW.
