Review of Realms of Fantasy June 2010

  I have a subscription to Realms if Fantasy. It’s pretty much my favorite magazine.  I was very happy when it failed to die last year, and I am always glad when I get a new issue in my mailbox.  I enjoyed June’s issue, and I like the way the stories fit together.  I read […]

The Unicorn’s Gift

The Unicorn’s Gift

Alison crawled between the boards over the abandoned house’s broken window and picked her way across the bare, dusty floor. The winter air was cold and still and smelled like rotting plaster, but Alison caught the faintest hint of lilacs. The kitchen door swung open at Alison’s touch and she stepped into spring sunshine.
