Epic, Fantasy, Adventure

This is the place where you will find the knights in shining armor, pirates on the high seas, and a hot air balloon helping people escape a hell-like dystopia. This index is for the epic-fantasy-adventures on a grand scale— The Lord of the Rings type, or King Arthur. You won't, however, find a trip to the moon—that would be in Science Fiction, Techno-Thriller or non-fictional/historical travels, which would be in Historical, Travel, Biographical and Autobiographical. You will, however, find fairy tales, provided they are epic or heroic in nature, and adventures that require courage, cunning, or result in the hero's personal growth. Again, as always, my choices for these indices are subjective and open to revision. Collections will be included if they contain at least one story that pertains to the subjects of this index.
