Tarot card decks have twenty-two major arcana, filled with symbolism and imbued with meaning. Explore the greater secrets and ideas behind those cards with the stories and poems of Arcana. Discovery awaits in tales such as a grasping king struggling with his legacy, an alchemist setting a golem out on a mission of revenge and a woman finding what she didn’t know she was looking for.
Each story is like drawing a card from the deck–you never know what it might reveal.

“A brilliant anthology by Rhonda Parrish. The stories are short but each is about the meaning of one of the major arcana cards in the tarot. Very well written stories for each card. Loved reading this.”
“It’s clear that Arcana is a labor of love for editor Rhonda Parrish. The stories and poem in the anthology are inspired by the cards of tarot’s major arcana, and from those roots a lush garden grows.”
“This collection is an unusual one. Some stories are heart warming, like “Finders and Keepers” and others are just plain strange… If you like the strange and weird, this is for you.”
