Once Upon a Time…

AMERICAN FABLES is a collection of pieces authored by Zachary D. Turner. Here you can find The Escapists series, reviews, and other assorted works of fiction.


Also, a sincere thanks from the author who has lived a composite life built on the work of all the magnificent characters he ever had the pleasure of knowing.

Thank you Charlotte Costenoble, who did the site logo and other charcoal illustrations for the site. (if you’re interested in working with her, she can be reached at ch.costenoble@gmail.com)

And also a thanks to my sister and editor who is always very honest and reads whatever I send her, no matter how weird it is.
