Synopsis of Weird Tales from Shakespeare:

Twenty-three original and imaginative stories by popular science fiction and fantasy authors explore the life and works of Shakespeare. From Barbara Denz’s behind-the-scenes look at the real story behind the “second best bed” (“The Will”) to Kate Daniel’s revised version of a famous tragedy (“The Tragedy of Gertrude, Queen of Denmark”), the 23 stories in this standout collection pay tribute to the life and work of William Shakespeare.
