Fantasy is a genre of fiction that commonly uses magic and other supernatural phenomena as a primary element of plot, theme, or setting. Many works within the genre take place in imaginary worlds where magic is common. Fantasy is generally distinguished from the genre of science fiction by the expectation that it steers clear of scientific themes, though there is a great deal of overlap between the two.
”Evanghelia neagră” e un micro-roman despre lume ca rețea, ca pânză de paianjen; despre desprindere din ”matrix”; despre malefic; despre om ca Ales; despre lupta între păianjeni și transcendent.
Bine și rău, vină, căință, mizerie… cum poate urca omul spre zei când stă în ghenunchi cu fruntea‐n țărână? Dumnezeu bun, Diavol rău. Dumnezeu te pedepsește pentru că e bun, Diavolul îți oferă plăcere fiindcă e rău. A naibii logică a paradoxului. Logica credinței, credința logică. Abureli. Astfel mi se învălmășeau în cap, într‐un du‐te‐vino haotic, idei și imagini pe care nu puteam să le ordonez, să le storc, să extrag din ele Ideea. N‐am reușit decât să pricep că, omene...
A man is lost in Antarctica.
A poetic look at life and death.
Hahn reflects on the world as it existed in 2076, before the war, and how the devastation unleashed by the war shaped the lives of the survivors. Hahn is keen that the school boy, Eugene, grasps that, while there were huge changes in technology before and after the war, the most important change was in people, and their attitude towards each other and the planet on which they lived.
Eugene’s brow furrowed. ‘You mean you could choose who died?’
‘Oh yes.’ Hahn’s tone was matter of fact. ‘But now I venture onto the territory of state secrets! Not only were we implanted with health chips, those of us who thought we were important were implanted with tags that identified our status. This was updated in real time. So if my car was in an accident with another, and there was a possibility that one car would be so badly damaged its passengers would die, one...

A fantasy fiction, based on the legend about dr. Faust.
Give those Immortals who’ve become swollen
With pride, the benefit of the doubt,
‘Twas through their doings that they have fallen,
This is what their sojourn was e’er about.
Yearnings of going back to their own sphere,
Within themselves intensely they’ve carried,
Ad infinitum bound to interfere,
In human affairs for’er stay buried.
Tho’ longing for their abode o’er cloud nine,
Anacamptic sound of harps in their hearts,
They can’t evade it, but...
A low-tech fantasy novel. Follows both a group of transgender idealists planning a revolution, and the guards of the government they are working to overthrow.
“Ah, the wood Bound,” Sileas said, with a nod to the painting Corliss stood in front of. She spun, startled by the noise. “I saw it once when I was much younger,” Sileas continued. “I've never seen anything so beautiful or odd again. I had it drawn from my description.”
The painting was delicately done in layers of richly pigmented oils. Not a brushstroke could be seen, and it glowed from within. A figure with emerald green skin slipped its way between trees. Its eye...

Danny learns that a simple card game, designed to pit the forces of the Lig...
"Oh," said Danny, pausing for a moment while thumbing the engraved symbol of Light upon the scabbard of the dagger, a solid white chain interlinked with a black chain of seeping dark flames. "What does the symbol of Light stand for?" he was mesmerized by the emblem.
Tyramear followed Danny's captivated gaze down to the small sheath. "At the core, the symbol is meant to represent a balance of a sort, a union between both good and evil." Glancing at the road and then a...

She had a vision of a being in existence before the universe was properly formed and the planets were just balls of boiling molten rock. The first scraps of life developed, galaxies collided and merged and later whole epochs rose and fell, and yet still he stood t...
A parody that mirrors the time-line of JK Rowling's Book: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Harry Potter Book 2). Though this book is a parody of book 2, it is the first book of this series.
Chapter 1 – The Sorting Hat
High above, on the side of a cliff, stood the largest castle I'd ever seen—ever imagined. The windows glowed with candlelight, as the last desperate rays of light silhouetted the castle against a gray sky. I knew Britain was famous for old crumbly buildings, but this place was ridiculous.
One of the teachers announced, "First years, wait here. In a moment, we'll enter the Great Hall where you'll be sorted into houses."
As we waited to en...
