Dare you enter the Wizards’ Kingdom?

Today we are proud to publish the Kindle edition of the popular wizarding adventure series, Wizards’ Kingdom.

Wizards_Trilogy_max

 

Lovers of The Hobbit and the Harry Potter books will delight in this trilogy of fantasy adventure books where our heroes must overcome dark sorcerers and monstrous creatures to free the Wizards’ Kingdom from the clutches of evil.

Inspired by the stories enjoyed by his own children, author Colin R. Parsons originally wrote the books for 8-12 year olds, but the praise from the many thousands of Wizards’ Kingdom readers make it plain that these books are loved by every age group.

The paperback edition, published by TallyBerry Publishing, has sold many thousands of copies, mainly through Colin’s workshops in schools throughout Wales and England. Now the Repository of Imagination has brought out a Kindle edition so these tales can be enjoyed by children — and others! — throughout the world.

The books in the trilogy can be read alone or as a series. All of them are illustrated throughout by artwork from Derek Jones. Here’s a selection:

Updates for Christmas 2012, including new releases

From all here at the Repository of Imagination, a hearty Merry Christmas to our human readers.

We are still hard at work preparing the Earth branch of our Repository to become fully functioning early in 2013. There are many millions of stories in our branches across the galaxy and in other realities where magic is real and household chores do themselves. Selecting the best of them and translating into human languages (we have selected English as our starting language) takes time but is time well spent.

Book Cover - Crank Tech One- Destruction 400px w 96dpiOur next release will be an international version of our robot-on-the-rampage story, Crank Tech One: Destruction, a story written by one of your very own, a human scribe from a country called Wales. His name is Colin R. Parsons. His tale is already available to the inhabitants of Wales, and some of the neighboring countries too. However, our attention has been drawn to the bizarre fact that your world can’t agree on a single version of any of your languages. Don’t worry, it will come in a few thousand years. Rather than wait until then, we have decided to release another version of Colin’s book, this one translated into another language, one called American. This will be available from December 19th, in time for your seasonal celebration known as Christmas, Xmas, or Father Christmas depending on local cultural reference.

We are still learning your customs, but we know that your Christmas is celebrated by tearing colored paper into strips, eating too many nuts, and watching a television program called the Doctor Who Christmas Special. This fits very nicely with Crank Tech One: Destruction, which is set in Cardiff, where Doctor Who is filmed. When the droid, Crank Tech One, runs amok through Cardiff city center, the watching crowd assume it is just another Doctor Who episode being screened. They soon learn their mistake!

Crank Tech One will be available worldwide in wood pulp and Kindle editions. Visit our ‘Tales from us’ page for more details. The book is already available in paperback and Kindle editions in Wales and the United Kingdom.

Meanwhile, brave schoolchildren in Wales will soon be the first readers of our first collection of Repository tales from other worlds. The book will be called Alien Legends: A Selection from the Repository of Imagination, and it has been translated into human by another scribe from Wales; this one is named Gill Shutt. We have a picture of the cover of the wood-pulp edition for you here.
