From astonishing worlds of fantasy, aliens, and magic, the Repository of Imagination has been collecting tales since the dawn of time. Selected story spheres from the Repository are now being translated into human languages for the first time. Open your mind to the splendor of other worlds.
In Treasure of the Last Dragon, four tales have been selected, suitable for young humans aged 11-16 years, and for older readers whose sense of wonder is still functional. Translated from the original non-human sources and annotated by senior branch Repositarian, Crustias Scattermush.
Treasure of the Last Dragon
“Roll up! Roll up! Come see the amazing humans at our alien fair. Hear the tale of the last dragon of Earth. Learn the truth about the halfling burglar and the golden dragon horde. Just a few copper coins, sir. Thank you. You won’t regret it, madam. It’s a journey that’s lasted a thousand years, but the treasure of the last dragon is right here at our very own alien fair. Today only. Roll up! Roll up!”
The Green Tailor of Mermos-37
The visiting alien tailor offers the emperor fabulous new clothes. He claims they can only be seen by the emperor’s truest and most loyal subjects.
Suzia and her family join the happy crowds thronging the route of the hastily arranged imperial procession, unaware that the emperor has set a trap.
The Snot Wizard: a tale from St. Rushby’s Home for the Un-Parented
Even the most famous detectives must have their first case. For celebrated forensic sorcerer, Quintus Repper, destiny beckons when a new dark studies teacher arrives unexpectedly at St. Rushby’s Home for the Un-Parented…
For years she has hidden her dark and dirty secret. Then one day, just after her 14th birthday, they have finally come to take her away. For Korrine has the Curse, the compulsion always and endlessly to do just one thing… DIG!
One of these tales is a short story and the other three novelettes, a story format longer than a short story but shorted than a novella or novel. That’s a perfect length to deliver a story with depth and richness but one you can still finish in one go.
