Army of the Fantastic
John Marco, John Helfers
Penguin, 2007 - Fiction - 303 pages
13 original tales of fantastical battles for anyone who needs a dose of un-reality.
How might the course of World War II have changed if civilized dragons ran bombing missions for the Germans? Here are 13 tales of war in alternate worlds where magical creatures are real and often prove victorious. Human troops fight alongside gryphons, unicorns, and a sea serpent, who can give submarine warfare a whole new slant.
These are just a few of the stories gathered together in this all-original volume that opens the way to magical places in our own world where the armies of the fantastic are on the march, waging wars both vast and personal.
