Selections  from a series of illustrated short story pamphlets which I edited for Scout Books. Released in themed trios including Fantastic Tales I & II, Forever Modern, War Stories, and the History of Mystery, each individual title paired one or more stories by a classic author with new drawings by a contemporary illustrator. My work on the project as series editor included selecting the stories and artists, typesetting, design of the cover trade dress and interiors, and giving feedback to artists. Incredible support and assistance from Laura and Austin Whipple and Taryn Cowart.
