The Hollow Prince is the second act of Mark Teppo's first collection, The Court of Lies. These six stories wander into strange cities—urban spaces where wolves live, where the sky bends back on itself, and where the back alleys hide dangerous remnants of old dreams. These are stories of liars, heartbreakers, and fabulists; the way they see the world is undoubtedly the way it truly is. Welcome back to the Court of Lies. The Hollow Prince is your guide, and you should not trust his disarming smile . . .
