“Once upon a time in a faraway land, a princess was born who was so beautiful that nobody was allowed to look at her for fear that they would be so jealous that they would try to harm her…. no mirrors could be hung in the palace because they would shatter into a hundred thousand pieces if she were to look into them…”

Fiona loved this fairytale, because she led a similar life. There were no mirrors in her house. She lived only with Mummy, who protected her little daughter from jealous eyes, and never let Fiona out of the house and patio.

Graham Masterton, giant of horror, as always ruthlessly uncovers the darkest nooks and crannies of the human mind and soul. Just like a fairytale, this short story contains psychological depth and wisdom, showing us where the attitudes that we consider “normal” can lead us.
