Five essential books of tarot fiction

Tarot is a site of transference between art and literature. The images in many tarot cards represent various mythological and religious stories.

I’ve drawn upon Corinne Kenner’s Tarot for Writers as well as created original spreads when designing my tarot writing workshops. I’ve compiled a list of essential books to begin--or continue--your journey into tarot fiction:
