    'We all wear masks. Human beings mask their faces with paint, with wood, with the faces of others. Others mask as humans. Some masks hide tragedy – some bring joy.

    What is our place in the masqued dance? How does the face-changing, shape-changing moment touch us or transform our lives? Thirty exciting writers use fantasy, science fiction and horror to take us on a dangerous journey through the many masks of Masques' (CFSG website).
