FANTASTICAL VISIONS 3 is an anthology that contains fourteen illustrated tales of fantasy and wonder.  W.H. Horner, the editor of this book, is an MA student at Seton Hill University who is now writing his first novel.  This anthology is his fourth book.

 

The introduction of this anthology was written by Elizabeh Swanstrom who has contributed to Fantastical Visions volume 2.  She urges the readers, as they read these stories, to ‘allow yourself to understand, without knowing why, exactly what each story is saying, in your own language of dreams.’  The book includes tales with knights, dragons, dark tales and stories that are almost real, all complex enough to absorb the reader’s interest and create the fantasy illusion, the one that exists only in our dreams.

 

Readers will let their imagination travel to the era of witches and knights, to the realm of spirits that either haunt one’s life or can act as guidance to their life.  For example, the spirit in ‘Black is the Color of my True Love’s Hair’ is an angel guide, while in the dark tale, ‘Paper Shadows’, there is a demon a boy brings to life , that spreads complete disaster. Some of the tales are thought provoking, while others are acting as stimulants to imagination.  Strong characters, complex stories, highly descriptive language which, at times, reflects the era the author describes, and intriguing plots are the ingredients of this superb anthology. It caters to all fantasy lovers and it is a good, entertaining read.
