Fantasy Stories

If you enjoy movies like Lord of the Rings, Pan’s Labyrinth, 300, Back to the Future, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, The Mummy, Conan, Beowulf and Eragon then you’ll enjoy fantasy fiction.
Many of these movies were based on fantasy books/stories.

‘Hobgoblin Boots’ a Mocklore Story by Tansy Rayner Roberts
Published Scrybe Press

When I was thirteen years old, my mother ran away from home.  No one was surprised.  She had always been the flighty type.  I was old enough to take care of myself anyway, always running off somewhere on an adventure or a scrape.

Truth is, I was hardly home at all and when she left our village it is entirely possible that she just forgot about me.
Or maybe it was me she was running away from.   Read Tansy’s story Hobgoblin Boots

‘THE TALE OF TALES’ by Richard Harland
Published Kaleidotrope

Published Conversations, Vol 5 No.2 Summer 2005 Pandanus Books

“No,” he said.   Read Maxine’s story The Legacy of Master Li
