Tales from Derian

Here are eight well-known folktales from Derian, the setting of Kulebra. In Derian, festivals and holidays are times for stories, times to pass the mythology of their world and origins on to their children. Alongside three Anansi retellings are five new short stories where readers discover Derian’s mythology of the history of the world, the balance between good and evil, and the origins of Chuioke’s powers. Settle in, enjoy, and gain a bit more insight into the world of Kulebra.
