Arranged from light to meaty fare, the antrollogy’s “menu” offers up fanciful and farcical stories, family-oriented tales, romance, mystery, high peak adventure, even magically surreal literary stories—starring all sorts of trolls, from the all-too-real Internet variety to the mythical mountain and bridge-dwelling trolls of legend.
Readers will laugh nervously at Humphrey the half-breed’s unfortunate beginnings, and bite their nails on behalf of Fergus Underbridge, hard-boiled troll detective. They’ll cheer a not-so-ordinary troll-fighting girl and want to hug—or slap—a woman lost in her own neighborhood. And whatever should be done about the boy with the head of a dragon…?

“When we launched in 1992, we had a deep conviction that we could and must act against the violation of women’s rights around the world. We had a small dedicated group of volunteer activists in a few countries, and only on-the-street t-shirt sales to help with startup costs….we now have offices in New York, Nairobi and London as well as a presence in Amman, Jordan and Washington, DC. Our Action Network has grown to more than 35,000 members in 160 countries. Equality Now has become a standard for activism on the ground where we try to translate women’s needs into national, regional and international law, policy and practice including through regional and thematic coalitions that raise awareness and move the agenda forward.”
