Strange Fantasies


From Psychology Today: “Fantasies are not frivolous. They can be entertaining, distracting, frightening, even arousing, but they also allow for creativity and help us plan for the future.” Strange Fantasies

I’m doing a rare Saturday post because I’ve just released STRANGE FANTASIES—31 Short Tales of Mystery and Wonder.

Yes, the stories are available as individual posts; but, now you can have all 31 Strange Fantasies on your Kindle for 99 cents.

It took me 7 months of Fridays to write them and I worked hard to “bend” the Fantasy Genre.

Just in case you’ve never considered reading “fantasy”, perhaps because you feel it’s too frivolous, here are the root meanings of the word:

early 14c., “illusory appearance,” from Old French fantaisie (14c.) “vision, imagination,” from Latin phantasia, from Greek phantasia “appearance, image, perception, imagination,” from phantazesthai “picture to oneself,” from phantos “visible,” from phainesthai “appear,” in late Greek “to imagine, have visions,” related to phaos, phos “light,” phainein “to show, to bring to light“. Sense of “whimsical notion, illusion” is pre-1400, followed by that of “imagination,” which is first attested 1530s.”

So, read all 31 short fantasies on this blog or get the Kindle book, cheap :-)
