Stories are a form of magic. Through them we create worlds and people.

Within these pages you will find a variety of worlds and characters: heartbroken werewolves, Roman soldiers and dragons who seek immortality only to find the cost is more than they expected. Pirates seeking release from their eternal punishments. A fairy tale princess who learns the real reason for the curse is to prevent her from being used by others. A pair of ladies whose story is well known, but have you ever heard their side of the story. And many more.

Werewolves, dragons, unicorns and other magical creatures inhabit the worlds contained within. Various gods walk these realms as do spirits both pleasant and vengeful.

Carol Hightshoe invites you to enter these worlds and visit with the characters she has created in 24 tales of science-fiction and fantasy. Here legends will be reborn.
