BANISHED CREATURES - three translated stories

Many people ask me: Are the books of Serbian mythology available in English? I must say – not yet, unfortunately... BUT, we have translated three stories from Banished Creatures book, as the examples that we used to find potential publishers outside our country. We have two interested publishers, for now - one from Germany and another from France. I hope that in a future time we find a publisher from England or America, who would be willing to publish this books of Serbian mythology. Until that happens, you have the opportunity to read three stories in English.
