Here's a collection of stories you probably won't find anywhere else. Inside Fun Tales of Fantasy & the Future are tales of a spooky mansion eager to be bought; a clever antiques dealer; disappointed model railroad denizens; and a doorknob that greets your hand, literally. Thrown in at no extra charge are con-men, cranks, and college-age aliens. This collection assembles 18 stories published between 1990 and 2008. There's a mix of humorous fantasy and science-fiction, plus some SF/F with a light touch. These stories have appeared publications such as Marion Zimmer Bradley's Fantasy Magazine, Tales of the Talisman, and Golden Visions. The stories in this collection are great for anyone looking for a smile with their spaceships and spell casting.
