The Longest Road in the Universe: A Collection of Fantastical Tales

The Longest Road in the Universe Second Edition

Three broken people; a monk bearing a terrible scar, a warrior facing a terrible sorrow, and a woman hiding a terrible past face a relentless army so difficult to defeat it might as well be invincible. Genetically-altered citizens of a volcanic desert planet rush to preserve their cultural heritage as a terraforming project consigns them to death. A population of slaves engineered to love its owners comes to grips with their disappearance, while a grief-stricken pilot follows the trail of his missing master to the center of the galaxy. Supermassive singularities at the end of the universe contemplate the harmony before and the quiet ahead; mourning, eulogizing, and creating something altogether new. Discover these and other stories in The Longest Road in the Universe: A Collection of Fantastical Tales.

Introduction to the ATU Tale Types

Introduction to the ATU Tale Types

Hello, and welcome to the January 2021 Folklore & Fiction dispatch. In this edition, I'll be introducing you to three indexes of recurring motifs and plots found in folk tales. I'll also be providing you with a writing exercise extracted from Julia Cameron's excellent motivational book on the creative life, The Artist's Way. This dispatch has been released with the first of its companion Folklore & Fiction podcast episodes, and you'll find a link to that episode below. It's also the first in a two-year exploration of folkloric motifs and plots from around the world paired with writing exercises designed to help you make use of them as storytellers.
