Summary Excerpt Comments

Fantastical Visions III contains fourteen illustrated tales of fantasy and wonder. From heroic to tragic, light to dark, fanciful to painfully real, these stories explore the many facets of the genre.

An aging wizardess learns more than she expected as she hunts down the last dragon in “The Signing Dragon,” while a woman gets more than she expected from a mysterious plant in “Always Greener on the Other Side.” A demoness who has seen the error of her ways must still pay the price in “Blood of the Blade,” and a boy's coping mechanism comes to chilling life in “Paper Shadows.”

A surgeon takes on a disease of mythic proportions in “Affliction,” while an elven thief takes on the forces of darkness in “Thick as Thieves.” A dwarf fights for his place in the world and seeks revenge in “No One Marks My Passage,” and a crusader travels to home and wife with the help of a mysterious spirit in “Black is the Color of My True Love's Hair.”

A young knight must brave an ogre's cave in order to save his love in “Red Silk, Silver Dagger,” while two sisters must work their magic together in order to survive being stranded in a forbidden forest in “The Mordred Hour.” An exiled musician finds himself friendless and far from home in “The Pear Thief,” and an inmate in an Australian sanitarium finds the gifts of his elven blood to be useful to help a friend in “Happy Birthday, Pinko.”

An unappreciated scientist takes theatrical inspiration too far in “Cuts and Folds,” while a businessman complicates his love life with the purchase of a mysterious book in “Calico.”
