Village of One Thousand Cranes

Village of One Thousand Cranes

There is a Japanese legend that says whoever folds a thousand cranes will be granted a wish. Papaveria Press presents a moving and perhaps timely short story by Danny Adams: Village of One Thousand Cranes. It is the tale of a young Japanese-American girl who, while living in an internment camp, comes to understand how wishes can change the world.

The book is case bound with a reinforced spine including headbands. It is covered in a red cloth patterned with cherry blossoms and inside it is lined with thick, red endpapers.

This title is sold out.

Danny Adams is the co-author, with Philip Jose Farmer, of the short science fiction novel The City Beyond Play, forthcoming from PS Publishing at the end of 2006. He is a member of the Science Fiction Poetry Association and has far too many publishing credits to list here.
