Description de l’éditeur
Imaginative and witty fantasy stories
"It's a while since I read these stories but I do remember enjoying them immensely. In a way, they reminded me of Ray Bradbury, which I consider to be high praise. The stories do not go where you think they will, but have, to my taste, satisfactory conclusions." Amazon.co.uk Reviewer
