Original post dated September 3, 2020:
Those who have already read through the latest WoW novel "Rise of the Shadows" and internalized the prequel to the upcoming Shadowlands expansion will soon get reading supplies: as Wowhead reports, Blizzard is namely planning to publish a new anthology called "Folk & Fairy Tales of Azeroth", which will contain a total of twelve short stories by various authors.

These short stories do not revolve around central characters of the Azerothian present, but rather around folkloric and fairy tales represented throughout Azeroth. Blizzard writes in an official Bluepost (translation by us):

"Monsters, mystery, and magic abound
