Fantasy (62 Books)


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.

The Stone

By: Donald Harry Roberts

A time when a boy faces himself in alternate realities

The boy walked along the river bank quietly, watching the fish labour up river against the current. He wondered why nature had made them work so hard to spawn, while other animals mated without more than minor rituals, especially humans. As he moved further down steam he spied many fish who had died on the journey but there was one that was caught among the rocks and struggling to get free. The boy waded into the shallow water to free the fish but when it turned over th...

Skeins of Gold: Rumpelstiltkin Retold

By: Ms. Holly Bargo

This new version of the Rumpelstiltskin fairy tale addresses some dangling questions not answered in the original story and is told from the perspective of the miller's daughter.

It’s the lot of women to suffer the stupidity of men. I looked out the window of the grand carriage painted and gilded with the king’s family crest as it carried me from the hovel of my home to the castle where I somehow had to make good on my father’s nonsensical boast that I could spin straw into gold. Had my father not soaked his brain in cheap ale to bolster his courage, he would have realized that, if his boast were true, our family would not live in a hovel and...

Exodus Tales of Prophet Moses (Musa) & Prophet Haron (Aaron)

By: Muhammad Vandestra

Islam Folklore Prophet Jesus (Isa) Son of Mary & The Bird from Clay

By: Muhammad Vandestra

In the beginning I was clay then I became a bird by Allah's leave. From motionless clay to a soaring bird. I was something that was not able to move by itself and then I could fly in the sky.

Allah (Exalted and Glorified be He) introduced me in the last of His Books saying, "(Remember) when Allah will say (on the Day of Resurrection), 'O 'Isa (Jesus), son of Mary am (Mary)! Remember My Favor to you and t...

Evanghelia Neagră

By: Marcu Jura

”Evanghelia neagră” e un micro-roman despre lume ca rețea, ca pânză de paianjen; despre desprindere din ”matrix”; despre malefic; despre om ca Ales; despre lupta între păianjeni și transcendent.

Bine și rău, vină, căință, mizerie… cum poate urca omul spre zei când stă în ghenunchi cu fruntea‐n țărână? Dumnezeu bun, Diavol rău. Dumnezeu te pedepsește pentru că e bun, Diavolul îți oferă plăcere fiindcă e rău. A naibii logică a paradoxului. Logica credinței, credința logică. Abureli. Astfel mi se învălmășeau în cap, într‐un du‐te‐vino haotic, idei și imagini pe care nu puteam să le ordonez, să le storc, să extrag din ele Ideea. N‐am reușit decât să pricep că, omene...

Pigs Don't Wear Diamonds

By: Margaret Medici

Hahn reflects on the world as it existed in 2076, before the war, and how the devastation unleashed by the war shaped the lives of the survivors. Hahn is keen that the school boy, Eugene, grasps that, while there were huge changes in technology before and after the war, the most important change was in people, and their attitude towards each other and the planet on which they lived.

Eugene’s brow furrowed. ‘You mean you could choose who died?’ ‘Oh yes.’ Hahn’s tone was matter of fact. ‘But now I venture onto the territory of state secrets! Not only were we implanted with health chips, those of us who thought we were important were implanted with tags that identified our status. This was updated in real time. So if my car was in an accident with another, and there was a possibility that one car would be so badly damaged its passengers would die, one...

By: Voyen Koreis; Voyen Koreis, Illustrator

A fantasy fiction, based on the legend about dr. Faust.

THE SONNET Give those Immortals who’ve become swollen With pride, the benefit of the doubt, ‘Twas through their doings that they have fallen, This is what their sojourn was e’er about. Yearnings of going back to their own sphere, Within themselves intensely they’ve carried, Ad infinitum bound to interfere, In human affairs for’er stay buried. Tho’ longing for their abode o’er cloud nine, Anacamptic sound of harps in their hearts, They can’t evade it, but...
