Stories

  1. Fantasyland XXIII

    The men stood in the dank tunnel simply staring at each other. “You still haven’t answered my question. What are you doing down here,” Ralph asked, John was looking at the walls. “You know it’s funny, when I was snooping around your laborato...

  2. Fantasyland XXII

    When Dodgy Ron finished tunnelling Ralph’s laboratory and charging him according to the Tunneler’s Payment Scale before adding the mandatory exponential factor of two, the serious work began. Ralph moved his tabletop experiment subterranean and tha...

  3. Fantasyland XXI

    “What you ‘ave ’ere me boy is a problem,” the builder kicked the passage wall, “you want to go big but you don’t ’ave the room, but ol’ Ron here can helps yah. For a price of course.” “Of course,” Ralph shot back, ...

  4. Fantasyland XX

    “I never realised how much I dislike the smell of garlic,” Ralph thought as he threw another loaf of garlic bread onto a pile of bread that had created its own pile beside a bin heaving with more bread. At first he had thought an experiment which ...

  5. Fantasyland XIX

    As a rule there are two things in life that you want to avoid, the first is to stay clear of the M4 on a public holiday weekend and the other is don’t go around scaring werewolves. Neither promote any kind of longevity in this world. The mysterious m...

  6. Fantasyland XVIII

    “I didn’t want to harp on about your werewolfness, that’s all,” Harold spluttered in his defence, “what kind of person do you think I am to jump on in and probe you about your now very obvious genealogical link to canines?” Mary loo...

  7. Fantasyland XVII

    It’s not every day you come across a former partner who now takes the form of a werewolf. The usual conversation topics normally associated with running into an ex-girlfriend down the street in the local convenience store don’t seem to quite cut i...

  8. Vengeance

    An elephant dancing on eggshells. An apt description of your sugar coated courting. You were neither understanding nor courteous. You tried to hide your indignity with a smile, it didn’t work. You tried to shield prying eyes from your mistake...

  9. Fantasyland XVI

    Harold’s werewolf problem had not eased, in fact it was worst. The pair were creeping about each other in a weird dance made more so by the fact that neither Harold nor the werewolf were good dancers. Every time the werewolf lunged, Harold moved....

  10. Fantasyland XV

    “You can’t just go around bringing garlic bread in and out of existence, it’s just not kosher,” the head wizard said to much baying from a group convened to discuss what had happened over night. “Or any kind of religious ...

  11. Fantasyland XIV

    Meanwhile in a cluttered room across town a wizard’s nerves got the better of him and he succumbed to a temporary eye twitch. His anxiety was warranted as he was soon about to discover whether he would cause the end of the world or start a new o...

  12. Fantasyland XIII

    “So let me get this straight,” Henry lifted his head to stare at the guard he had now taken a spot on a chair, “you will feed me, give me water, you WON’T beat me or torture me and all I do is hang here until I die?” ̶...

  13. Fantasyland XII

    Henry hated hanging around waiting for things to happen, he was a go-getter, which is why hanging around in the melancholic dungeon, surrounded by moaning bodies was insufferable. “Is this going to take long,” he asked while being shackled...

  14. Fantasyland XI

    “We’re clichés and not in a cute way but an unoriginal bad way,” the wizard, whose name happened to be Gary, said perusing the Inn. He was among four souls waiting for Gloria and Carl to arrive. “I know,” Emma, the group’s token h...

  15. Fantasyland X

    “A trek,” Gloria’s small button nose scrunched up flaring like a prize-winning stallion. “Yes,” Carl said as he strapped the long sword to his side giving the leather one last snap to make sure it was tight, “a trek.” “To the capital, a...

  16. Fantasyland IX

    Supreme Leader Steve entered his office locking the door before moving towards a large skeleton, its arm extended, a finger pointing as if to caution him. He unbuttoned the heavy robe and hung it from the finger along with a short sword before dragging...

  17. Fantasyland VIII

    “So we agree,” Supreme Leader Steve asked for the last time. “Yes,” 10 voices echoed in the grand hall from around the table while a single voice muttered “well.” That voice was Richard’s and he was never sure on anything. If it wasn

  18. Fantasyland VII

    The werewolf’s gaze flicked from Harold to the small child and back to Harold. The child had edged back so far he was pinned against the wall. “So what you offer me is a small mud coated morsel when I can have you, the main course,” the werewolf ...

  19. Fantasyland VI

    “Cap’n I know you said we’se weren’t allowed to complain but you’se think we’ll get the same respect on the streets wearing that,” Corporal Enid said pointing at an embarrassed Cpl Hollis. “Stop pointing at me,” Cpl Ho...

  20. Fantasyland V

    “Planning a revolution shoudn’t be this hard,” the cloaked man sighed from the head of the table. Henry decided, due to normal seating convention that person was the leader of this rabble and his name was Supreme Leader, or Steve. &#...

  21. Fantasyland IV

    Meanwhile across town a meeting, a supposedly very secret one, was taking place. The only thing was someone forgot to tell Henry. He heard about it at the Imps Grotto Inn from a slightly inebriated and incoherent troll, who had heard about it from a m...

  22. Fantasyland III

    Harold had few dealings with werewolves in the past, in fact he made it a point of it to avoid them and their undead brethren. There was something about the undead that caused Harold’s stomach to tie itself into knots before trying to escape via ...

  23. Fantasyland II

    Harold never wanted to be a knight, he wanted to be a wizard but his father had other ideas. “You’re not going to get around with those poncy wizards wearing those ridiculous silly pointy hats and those dresses with stars and moons on them,” his ...

  26. Fantasyland I

    “I thought knights were supposed to be honourable,” the boy was covered in mud and bits of straw, tufts of matted hair made his head look strangely oblique. “You’ve been reading too many Dragonlance novels kid,” the knight muffled through his...

  27. Excuses, Excused

    He looked over his shoulder to make sure no-one was around and leaned in, “I believe you buddy so let’s make a deal.”

  29. Fad of Life

    “It’s just a fad,” I whispered. For some reason my voice resonates when I am in church. “What is,” queried the woman looking confused and teary. “Life. “Life is not a fad,” her hackles snapped into action. “Yes. Yes it is. It comes an...
