Author (group) note: The Fellowship of Fantasy was put together by a group of Fantasy authors who wanted to find a creative way to reach genre-specific readers. I can’t remember which of our members first floated the idea of doing a short story anthology, but it gained popularity as a concept within the group some time last spring. We started running with it, and the pieces slowly snapped into place. We chose the theme of Fantastic Creatures partially because we knew our release would coincide with the release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and we wanted to take advantage of that audience.
