The Little Merfish

The Little Mermaid received quite a surprise when she tried to return to the sea. (Strange how horrific a mythological creature becomes when its parts are reversed.)

Worldbuilding Wednesday, 6/21/17

Continuing on my theme of randomly-generated magic spells items, let’s look at wizards and magic users in fantasy fiction. There are many memorable characters that come to mind, and if there’s one thing they have in common, it’s an unforgettable name. For example, Gandalf the Gray.

Death’s Erotic Thrill

There’s nothing more to be said here. (Kiss of Death Statue at The El Poblenou Cemetery in Barcelona)

Worldbuild Wednesday, 6/7/17

Starting a new series on this site, Worldbuild Wednesday, a selection of randomly generated people, places, things, and concepts suitable for incorporating into fantasy — or any speculative — fiction, courtesy of my continued experimentation with Gammadyne’s excellent Random Word Generator.
