Fantasy


Fantasy is a genre of fiction that commonly uses magic and other supernatural phenomena as a primary element of plot, theme, or setting. Many works within the genre take place in imaginary worlds where magic is common. Fantasy is generally distinguished from the genre of science fiction by the expectation that it steers clear of scientific themes, though there is a great deal of overlap between the two.

Moj Rimbaud

By: Aleks Z Izpovedi

SLOVENIAN: Antoni sreča pesnika Arthurja Rimbauda v Parizu 1973... ENGLISH: Antoni meets the poet Arthur Rimbaud in Paris in 1871 ...

SLOVENIAN: Povej mi nekaj… Si srečen s Paulom? Srečen? Pogledal me je, kot bi začel nenadoma govoriti slovensko. Skomignil je z rameni: Ne vem. O tem se ne sprašujem. To ni pomembno. Razmišljam o čutih. Na novo moram izumiti ljubezen, doseči neznano z razdiranjem vseh čutov, biti videc, če hočem biti največji pesnik. Ali pa gre pot… čisto drugam? Samo poezija je važna. Saj to veš. Antoni, je dodal, kot bi me hotel prijazno okrcati. Misliš, da bi te lahko kaj odvrnil...

.“Yes. Maybe I will dare.” Timothy cheered. “And I dare you Mr. Cavalier, if you have the courage?” “Sometimes Mr. Mundanie, What looks like courage is stupidity. However, if you chose to be stupid then I must follow and try to keep you from something totally disastrous.” The midnight trumpets sounded and suddenly the streets were abandoned and silent, almost silent.

The Mystery Of Piper's Harbour : Introduction: Introduction

By: Donald Harry Roberts; Donald Roberts

Beyond the old tales of the pied piper, into a realm that only great thinkers of the imagination rises an alternate world of compatibility until an evil nemesis comes to destroy it.

Long ago, far across the sea in the medieval town of Weymouth another story arose in the midst, near its end, of the great and notorious Black Plague that somehow was misplaced in the passage of time, but not lost. It was a grim reflection and much darker, of a tale that happened sixty five years before in the village of Hamelin. It is a tale in fact that marked the end of the plague, perhaps in a way historians over looked or hid, since magic was even then frowned up...

VUTE 2020

By: Dr. Rolando Alberto Alvarado Anchisi

El nombre de la obra es una mezcla de letras provenientes de las palabras “Vida” y “Muerte”. Curiosamente, entre ambas palabras se genera la palabra “Mierda”, hallazgo que me ocasionó gracia porque la vida o la muerte pueden ser una mierda en algunos aspectos. La otra palabra que se genera es “Vute”, que no tiene ningún significado en castellano.

Toda la vida es preciada, pero vivirmos en un mundo que parece ponerle cifras monetarias a cada aspecto de nuestras vidas. Alguien decide cuánto valemos y todos cargamos una etiqueta con nuestro valor. No estoy de acuerdo con eso,aún cuando puedo entender esta postura. Sin embargo, creo que ambos, yo como escritor y tu como lector, podemos empezar a cambiar el mundo que nos rodea con algo de pasión y mucho esfuerzo.

In Solstice and in Peril

By: Kevin Wade Johnson

Becoming a mercenary soldier is a good first step, but does he want to follow orders his whole life? Or give them? When Bear meets the mysterious youth called Mouse, he realizes that the two of them together might be able to call their own shots, and live an independent life. ...

We trudged up to the border post in a steady drizzle. Nothing but a dry-stack stone hut beside the road, the post held a single guard, grizzled-looking but tough. She stepped up to the doorway, but not out into the wet. "Welcome to the Barony of Rain," she said. "State your business." She didn't just look tough, she was tough. One guard, facing me and Mouse? Especially when she's closer to Mouse's size than mine? Okay, Mouse doesn't look like much unless you've b...

US Gummint Cunning Man : Volume 1

By: Kevin Wade Johnson

Shade mammoths, iron buffalo, and dodos; honeyberries, lightning pines, and mistle… It's 1840 in the United States, but a different country from the one we live in. Magic has been known for tens of thousands of years, and the only reason the colonies freed themselves from British domination is that Pennsylvania Rifles outrange the tyrannical power of Mastery. The colonies haven't gotten far into the interior yet; a different man from Thomas Jefferson was born in t...

I stepped into a world o' gold, gold and yellow and orange and all the colors 'twixt 'em, with a hint o' red too. I didn't see no underbrush, nor the scrubbier trees, leavin' only the giants, 'cept they rose on up even higher here, no leaves or branches till hunnerds o' feet up. I could see the stream a mile or so t' the north, same as the world back home, the other burblin' along t' the east, and t' the south the ridge risin' slowly up, all reddish, till it topped out...

By: Donald Harry Roberts; Donald Harry

A fantasy that is for kids, especially those who spent some time being an adult.

He decided long ago that growing up that much could wait until he was ... older, much older than his fifteen years, at least twenty. One of Buck’s fav...
