This introduction to the edited volume sets out the idea of experimenting with alternative literary forms as lenses through which to look anew at international law and to find what doors this may open. It loosely situates the endeavor within the burgeoning fields of international law and literature or aesthetics. It moreover outlines how the stories collected in the volume -a set of surprisingly dark essays- inquire into who the storytellers of international law are, where the stages on which they tell their stories are found, and who are absent from these tales.
