Lose yourself in three astonishing worlds—each of them facing disaster. One has fallen; one is falling now; and the third... is blind to the doom that approaches.

Read of magic: of swords and monsters: of impossible last stands: of three disparate protagonists and the vastly different fates that await them.

This is a collection of three short stories -- the first is set in a post-apocalyptic (I don't think that's really the right word but my vocabulary is failing me) Earth where humans are enslaved by an alien race, the second is a medieval fantasy, and the third is a story of one modern man's trip into the faery world.

Mr O Guilin, you are an evil, evil man...these stories are not for the faint of heart.

Some things: (SPOILERS!!!)

- The First of Many: I was wondering why they would leave the worm there? Couldn't they have chopped off her hand? Granted, the worm defends itself if it notices that someone wants to hurt it, but they could have snuck up on her, without telling her. OK, it would have messed up the plot, but still.

- Forever in the Memory of God: I kept thinking the boy would remember that his name was
