The Tale of Alathimble Spaide is a collection of fantasy tales and poems to amuse and delight. The book includes tales of wizards, gnomes, ogres, trolls, vampires and one dragon who isn’t all that he appears to be.

The main character of the title work is a hapless magician and his pet pig who together, through shared misfortune and ineptitude, become unlikely heroes.

For the reader searching for deep and serious high fantasy, we strongly recommend Tolkien. For those simply looking for a bit of frivolous fantastical fun, this is the book for you.
